Special children's ministry programs are held weekly on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. We consider children an important part of the church, as they learn from adults and adults learn from them.
The Pre-School Department at First Baptist Church offers classes and a nursery for children five years old and younger. Music, Bible lessons, art activities and snacks are provided to children ages two through five. A separate nursery is available for infants and toddlers. A team of dedicated teachers provide a loving atmosphere while teaching the children. (On hold until Covid protocols allow)
The nursery is open on Sunday for Sunday School and Worship beginning at 9:15 am. A nursery is also provided on Wednesday night while parents participate in the Wednesday evening worship service and for the First Fruits service on the first Sunday night of the month. (On hold until Covid protocols allow).
Regular children's programs are held weekly on Wednesday night and Sunday morning. Children study the Bible, learn about missions, enjoy music and crafts, and even help lead worship occasionally throughout the year.
In the early summer, the children are involved in Vacation Bible School. The church-wide camp-out in the fall is also a favorite event for many children and their families. Hands on mission projects like Operation Kid-to-Kid and local projects teach children to love God and to love people.
