Children & Youth
Children and Youth at First Baptist
We value children and youth as part of the church today, and not simply as future participants. Children and youth should be encouraged to grow in faith through education and spiritual formation.
Children and youth who come to First Baptist will find a second family of grandmothers and grandfathers, aunts and uncles, to nurture them. Families with all ages of children and youth are welcome here, and with our wonderful congregation’s seasoned Christian educators, you know your child will be in excellent care for their faith journey!
As we enter a season of new growth, we would love to have you and your family alongside us.
Come GROW with us!
Currently, we offer a Children’s Sunday School hour in the Church Nursery with two teachers. Children of all ages are welcome, and as the program grows, the age groups may be split according to developmental learning abilities. All children, from infants to teenagers, are welcome and will be guided during the Sunday School hour.
Worship Care / Nursery
During worship, children under the age of 6 are welcome to come to the worship service, but the church nursery is also available for childcare during the worship hour. Staffed by a minimum of two nursery care workers, the worship care hour can accommodate infants to children aged 5 years.
New Children & Youth Ministries
Come GROW with us!
Children who attend First Baptist Church Early Learning Center or First Baptist Church’s regular church activities are taught about faith on their level, learning how to worship God, how to love God and neighbor, and how to serve others in God’s name. As we grow our ministry to children, we will provide care and education at age-appropriate levels to grow children’s faith. We’d love to be a part of your child’s faith journey. Come GROW with us!
Through new ministries like The Open Church outdoor service, outreach to our local school systems through music and service, and getting to know our neighbors and their middle and high school children, First Baptist plans to begin a youth ministry that is as authentic and vibrant as we have had in the past. Do you want to join with us, learning and serving along the way? Come GROW with us!
