Children's Ministries at FBC
FBC's kids' ministries are the bedrock of what we do. We believe that training children to love, learn and live for the Lord Jesus Christ is a high calling and one of the greatest needs in churches.
Kids love our Children's Ministry. Our teachers are committed disciples themselves and are well-trained to foster an environment that is fun and enriching. Relationships between students, teachers and helpers are grown every Sunday and the result is a ministry that kids can't wait to come back to again and again.
Ultimately, our goal is to produce adult disciples of Christ by providing instruction to kids in Bible knowledge, Biblical character and even doctrine. We do this through 3 key ministries: Sunday School, Children's Church and AWANA, in addition to special summer programs, camps and sports ministries.
If you would like more information about any of our Children's Ministries, you can contact the leaders or the church directly on our Contact Page.
Our Ministries for Children
Nursery - "More than Babysitting"
Leader: Tammy Taylor
FBC provides Nursery for children up to four years of age. The Nursery is open on Sundays to support both worship service and the Sunday School period. We warmly welcome all visitors!
During Sunday School: All the children are together, playing with each other and the nursery volunteers.
During the Worship Service: We start out with music, so all the children will get to sing and learn the songs of the month. The children are then split into age-appropriate groups for snacks. We recommend packing an age appropriate snack in your child's diaper bag for those who cannot yet eat whole, solid foods (please let the volunteers know if your child has snack in their bag). 2-3 year-old children will be provided a snack through the Children's Church snack program. After snacks, the 2 and 3-year-olds have a Bible lesson that is centered around a monthly memory verse.
It is our goal to operate our nursery as a ministry of service to the Lord by serving parents and families by introducing their young child to church and to the Bible.
Children's Church - 10:00AM Service
Leaders: Cheryl Van Winkle & Rebekah Leonard
FBC Children's Church is a multi-age ministry in a chapel format that focuses kids on a variety of important biblical topics ranging from The Gospel to doctrine and living out your faith with your family and friends. Our Children's Church ministry brings the Bible alive using puppets, object lessons and songs. A small group discussion, lead by mature leaders, helps kids retain what they learn.
FBC Children's Church is a great time for kids that parents appreciate for the substance of what is taught.
Wiseguys - Wednesday Night Service @ 6:30PM
How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! - Proverbs 16:16
During our weekly Wednesday night service upstairs, the kids enjoy our children's program downstairs: Wednesday Night Wiseguys! This ministry, for boys and girls ages 3 through 6th grade, is designed to get kids into and understanding scripture. The children are split into age-appropriate age groups for exciting discovery and teacher-led discussion in scripture.
