 OUR MISSION

Our desire is to provide support and encouragement to parents, while providing programs and activities that lay a strong spiritual foundation for children from birth to 6th grade.

 

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

I’M NEW HERE

We ‘re glad that you have stopped by to learn what we’re all about here at First Baptist. We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel. We also have a passion for His children.  Children are gifts from the Lord & with that comes great responsibility.   “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me, but the one who sent me.”  Mark 9:37

We desire that children have every opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ so that they may grow in their relationship with Christ, hide His Word in their heart, & use the gifts He has given them for His glory.  We also hope to equip you as a parent to fulfill your greatest spiritual calling, as you teach & train your children.
 
We try to accomplish all of these things through our on-going weekly activities.  For our preschoolers, we provide Sunday School, Mission Friends, Choir, Mother’s Day Out, Weekday Early Education, and nursery care during worship. For our older children, we provide Sunday School, Discipletown, RA’s, GA’s, Choir, & the Bridge.  Throughout the summer, kids can also enjoy VBS, Music Camp, Art Camp, Centrikid Camp, & other “Fun in the Son” activities.  We also have many family-oriented events throughout the year to provide opportunities for you to spend spiritual time with your children.

 Discipletown takes place during the 11:00 worship service.  Children (K-4th grade) are dismissed after the singing portion of the worship service.  Children are taught the Word of God & how to apply it as a disciple of Jesus Christ through bible study, videos, & games.
 
 

Nursery

We provide nursery for babies through Pre-K during all of our weekly church activities & worship services.  Our nursery is staffed by screened volunteers who will love & safely care for your little ones, while you participate or serve in other areas of the church.
