We have taken several measures to ensure your children are safe, secure, and enjoying their time here. Sign in sheets, as well as a computer-based check-in will be used.We have adopted and put into place several policies concerning who may work with the children. One of them is that all children’s volunteers must go through a national criminal background check. If there is any doubt of a person’ reliability or trust, they are not permitted to work with the nursery, children's ministry, or youth ministry. Our goal is your children's safety when they attend church.
First Baptist offers Children’s Sunday morning classes for grades K - 6 at 9:00 a.m. The Gospel Project for Kids is a Christ-centered Bible study that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events—pre-creation to eternity, showing how Christ fits into the entire gospel story, and where each one of us fits into it too. It presents the story of redemption through Jesus like kids have never seen it before! Each week, these stories come to life through video, music, activities, and more.
