Children's Ministry

Children are a vital part of the church family at First Baptist. Our ministry to children provides opportunities to help them grow in relationship to God and others.


Weekly Opportunities for Children are:
Children’s Worship is offered for ages 5 thru 3rd grade during the Morning Worship Service. Participation is voluntary and children are always welcome to remain the worship service with their parents.

Sunday School meets at 8:30 AM on Sunday mornings. Bible passages and stories are taught through a variety of learning activities. The teachers help children apply these truths in their lives. Children are grouped into classes according to school grade.

Children’s Choir meets at 6:00 PM on Wednesdays during the school year.  Children’s choir provides opportunities for children in grades 1-6 to learn to praise and to worship God. During the year they are involved in children's musicals and help lead the VBS Music.

Girls in Action (GAs) is a comprehensive missions education program for girls in grades 1-6. It is offered on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM. Through participation in GAs, girls grow in their knowledge, understanding and application of the Bible. They also learn from the examples of missionaries and hands-on-mission action what it means to actively engage in ministering to others with the compassion of Christ.

Royal Ambassadors (RAs) is Bible centered mission education for boys in gradess 1-6. The groups meet on Wednesday at 6:30 PM. The RA Motto “We are Ambassadors for Christ” not only gives the organization its name, but also gives the boys and leaders a lifestyle goal. RAs participate in hand-on-mission activities, camping trips and other activities during the year.

Other Opportunities for Children include:
Special Events such as Swim Parties, Family Fun Day, an Easter Egg Hunt and a Children’s Christmas Party are planned by the Children’s Activities Committee.
