FBD kids are now offering IN PERSON ministry for preschool, elementary and nursery children at 9:00 AM. Elementary school  ministry is BOTH in person and online via Zoom!

We are excited to resume in-person ministry to both preschool and elementary-age children at 9:00 A.M. each Sunday. The nursery is also open at 9:00 A.M. with limited capacity. Our ministry team is excited to welcome and teach the children. We wanted to share with you the measures that we have taken to ensure your child’s safety each morning both with COVID and overall measures.



Elementary Sunday School is available in person and online over Zoom at 9:00 a.m every Sunday.  Children must register for in person class as our capacity is limited. Everyone is welcome to join us via Zoom.  It’s for kids and parents. It is really for anyone who wants to join! Click the link below to join.  






Jesus! That’s what kids ministry at First Baptist is all about. Kids Ministry at First Baptist is Christ-Centered. Our team, our time, our schedule, our special events, all our stuff is about Jesus, the heart of the Gospel! All of it is about teaching children to know, love, and follow Christ, God’s only Son, and our Savior all the days of their lives.

So how do we do this? We make a HUGE deal about these 8 things

  1. Digging into the Word of God each week. Classes are divided into smaller age groups – gifted teachers teach the children. It isn’t often that we sit them in front of a screen to learn.
  2. Weekly communicating the Gospel clearly and intentionally.
  3. Making much of God’s grace,  mercy, and truth.
  4. Building relationships with kids and parents each week.
  5. Partnering with parents by connecting what we learn each Sunday to the home.
  6. Sharing God’s great mission for His people here and everywhere in the whole world. Love God, Love People & Make Disciples!
  7. Encouraging children to use their talents in ministry.
  8. Oh yeah, having lots of fun!
