The Children’s Ministry at First Baptist is
committed to nurturing Children grades K-6 into a personal, exciting, and
growing relationship with Jesus Christ and equipping families
for spiritual growth.
As Children quickly grow stronger and taller in body, they also grow up in heart and mind. Each day our children are closer to forming the belief system that will guide them through life. Their belief system is formed by all they have absorbed from parents and others, good or bad. We live in challenging times as parents compete with the secular world for the hearts of their children.The days of our strong influence as parents are diminishing as our children grow towards independence.
Now is the time to teach our children more than goodness; we must teach them godliness. The difference is a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. That relationship is the basis for our foundation and belief system.
Our Children’s Ministry Committee is working harder than ever to partner with parents to build that foundation for Christ in the lives of their children. We strive to make church a happy place where children are taught the Bible, challenged to live by it, and encouraged to share it with others. Will you partner with us to make a permanent impression for Christ on the heart of your child?
We look forward to a great relationship with you as we build strong, Christ-centered children and families.
