Devona Moore

Children's Ministry Director

Devona was born and raised in Durango, she grew up in a Christian family, and attended First Baptist from age 5 until 18 when she married Douglas Moore that same year. At the age of 33, God in His great love, grace, and mercy saved her from what she deserved (death) and gave her what she did not deserve (eternal life)! Her greatest desire is for children to come to know the Lord as their Savior and become mature Disciples of Christ.   Devona loves to paddle board, have water fights, play with her grandchildren, enjoy family and friends, and to share the love of Christ with those around her. Devona has 5 children and 4 grandchildren.

Kids Events

WHO we are

The Great Commission is our mission as a church.  Our desire is to love God, love People, and make disciples. Our teaching, our time, our teams, our schedule, our special events; everything is about Jesus, the heart of the Gospel.  Our desire is that children will hear the Gospel and come to know, love, and follow Christ, becoming mature disciples of Christ. 


On Sunday mornings, we offer children’s Sunday school for various ages during the Sunday service. During the 9:00 a.m. service, Kids Ministry is offered for ALL children from nursery through 6th grade. Age groups are as follows:  

  • Nursery

    •  Birth -2 years of age

  • Preschool Groups

    • Ages 2-3

    • Ages 4-k

  • Elementary Groups

    • Grades 1 & 2

    • Grades 3 & 5

At the10:45 a.m. service, only Nursery and Preschool are offered. Elementary ministry is not offered during the 10:45 a.m. service. Worship resources are offered for children who join in corporate worship with their parents.


We care deeply about digging into the Word of God each week and making much of God’s mercy, grace and truth, offered to us through the person and work of Jesus Christ. We believe that God has gifted individuals to edify the Body. Teachers are trained, gifted, passionate and equipped. We want to help parents create family discipleship time in the home with weekly resources that help build and connect to what your child has learned on Sunday in their classes. We also encourage children to use their gifts and talents in ministry equipping them as our future leaders.
