3SweetGirlsThe Children’s Ministry at First Baptist is committed to nurturing children grades K-6 into a personal, exciting, and growing relationship with Jesus Christ and equipping families for spiritual growth.

As children quickly grow stronger and taller in body, they also grow up in heart and mind. Each day our children are closer to forming the belief system that will guide them through life. Their belief system is formed by all they have absorbed from parents and others, good or bad. We live in challenging times as parents compete with the secular world for the hearts of their children. The days of our strong influence as parents are diminishing as our children grow toward independence.

Now is the time to teach our children more than goodness; we must teach them godliness. The difference is a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. That relationship is the basis for our foundation and belief system.

Our Children’s Ministry staff
works hard to partner with parents to build that foundation for Christ in the lives of their children. We strive to make church a happy place where children are taught the Bible, challenged to live by it, and encouraged to share it with others. Will you partner with us to make a permanent impression for Christ on the heart of your child?

We look forward to a great relationship with you as we build strong, Christ-centered children and families.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD & SHOEBOX GIFTS:

GA’s and RA’s are going to get a really big head start on Operation Christmas Child. This year we will be collecting different items each month from March to November. This will allow individuals, Sunday school classes, and families to participate throughout the year instead of focusing on this mission opportunity just in the month of November. We will have a box just inside the door of the Family Life Center each Sunday and Wednesday for the items we are collecting that month. Our goal as a church is 75 boxes, plus any that families put together at home.

For the month of March, we will be collecting hygiene items. Items that we are looking for are washcloths, soap (no liquids), toothpaste, toothbrush, brushes, combs, etc.

Below you will find a list for the remainder of the year and what we will be collecting each month. For ideas regarding “WOW” items, CLICK HERE.
