Children’s Ministries

First Baptist Church provides quality children’s programming to meet the needs of your child in today’s world.  There are a variety of weekly and occasional ministries designed to make learning God’s Word fun, exciting and practical.   While learning, children build friendships and develop creativity.  We use well trained, loving people, who understand developmental stages of growth, to give your child the best possible experience. Each member who works with children are CAPP (Child Abuse Protection Policy) approved and exemplify Christ like behavior.

Children’s Church

IMG_2661 copyChildren’s Church is available for children ages 4-7. Children are dismissed from our 10:15 am worship service before the sermon and can join their friends for a lesson created just for them. For more information on our Children’s Church program please contact Pastor David Little.

Children’s Choir

If your child likes to sing he/she will want to participate in our children’s choir program. These choirs meet throughout the school year at 6 p.m. during the Sunday evening service. Our choirs emphasize a biblical character trait each month that is taught through a bible verse, a memorized song, and weekly lesson. The older children are encouraged to form the discipline of a daily devotional life. Ages 4 to the 2nd grade form the Rainbow Choir & grades 3 to 6 form the Young Ambassador Choir. They sing monthly in the Sunday evening services.
