We are committed to providing a safe, secure environment for all of our children. Nursery workers, worship care volunteers, and teachers all have been screened, background checked and trained in our child protection and safety policies.
God LOVES kids and so do we! It is an honor to serve you and your children as we partner together in their spiritual growth! We want every child to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ; know God, not just with their head, but with a heart knowledge that moves them to action – to love God, and to love and serve others.

8:50 am & 11:00 am | K-5th grade Children are a vital part of our worship. We celebrate inter-generational worship and intentionally seek to engage children in kindergarten through 5th grade in worship. There are regularly scheduled children’s sermons, baptisms and parent child dedication services. To help young children engage, we offer worship bags filled with activities to help your children focus during the worship services. These bags are located at the entrances to the sanctuary.
8:50 & 11:00 am | Infants to Four Years Old/Preschool Children: Infants to four-year old’s will receive excellent care in their age-specific classrooms during worship. We provide a caring environment specifically tailored to the age of your children and we staff our nursery rooms with caring professionals and dedicated volunteers who have been screened rigorously. Classrooms are on the preschool hall located directly behind the sanctuary; our door greeters can direct you to this area where you will be met by a childcare host.
10:00 am | All Ages Preschoolers: From the youngest age, children are taught about God’s love for them and others. As preschoolers grow, foundational Bible stories come to life each week through story, song, games, art and more! Elementary Children (Grades K-5): experience God each week through creative, interactive, hands-on lessons. Committed teachers provide a warm and friendly place for children to develop trust and faith. For games, activities and meaningful teaching tools, download the Bible Studies for Life Family App found in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

“My husband and I met at First Baptist, were married here, became very involved in a Sunday School Class, ended up meeting our very best friends through its ministry and dedicated our first child this year. First Baptist has truly been apart of so many blessings of our life.” Megan
