At FBC Kids we want your kids to know, love, and follow Christ with all their hearts in a fun, safe environment for Preschoolers to Preteens.
At First Baptist we celebrate the fact that even the youngest child can learn about the love of Jesus so we offer Sunday to Preschoolers from birth to age 4, in addition to our K – Grade 5 classrooms. Screened, trained, caring adults help your kids learn the truths of the Bible in a fun, loving environment.
Sunday School begins promptly at 9:15 a.m. Please plan on arriving early to check in your children so they won’t miss even one minute of fun and learning!
During Sunday morning worship our facility is staffed by both childcare staff and volunteers from our congregation who love children and want to provide quality care for our youngest so their families can worship together knowing their children are well cared for.
For Sunday School each classroom is staffed by two or more volunteer teachers who are prepared each Sunday to teach the children age-appropriate Bible Truths specifically:
Church is a safe and happy place.
I am loved at church.
God is big.
Jesus loves me.
The Bible is a special book.
For Sunday evenings, Wednesday activities, and other planned activities our Nursery facilities are staffed by our very special paid childcare staff. Our staff consists of trained, screened, and committed women who have a special relationship with each child who comes in their care. Their tenure and dependability are greatly appreciated and highly valued.
Nursery and preschool care through age 4 (before Sept. 1st of the current school year) is provided for all scheduled worship and church activities.
All individuals, paid or volunteer must complete our Child Protection Training Course and submit to a back-ground check before they are allowed to participate in Preschool or KIDministries.
Crew 252 is our Wednesday evening kids club. We want our kids to live the reality of the Bible, to see that they are created to serve our Heavenly Father, and to find joy in doing it! Crew 252 is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. It is based on Luke 2:52, "And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man." (ESV).
Each month we have an over arching theme which is reinforced by Bible stories and a memory verse for the month. This theme carries over into our crews where kids learn new skills to minister to the people around them every day.
Our Crew 252 club meets from 6:15 to 7:45 pm in our Recreation Outreach Center (ROC) located at 100 W. Brin Street. Crew 252 is for children ages 4 years through 5th grade.
Upward is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for
boys and girls pre-k through third grade.
Emphasis is placed on “Christlikeness” and good sportsmanship—not championships and trophies.
Our season begins in the late fall, with games played during January & February.
Upward seeks to strengthen children and their families by:
- Maximizing the family schedule by having only one hour of practice and one game each week,
- facilitating an atmosphere of sportsmanship by not keeping league rankings,
- allowing the coaches to focus on ministering, instead of game strategy,
- by having a set substitution system that allows all players equal playing time,
- and by maximizing ministry opportunities by exposing participants & spectators to Scripture-based halftime devotions.
