Newborn to 5th Grade

At FBC we desire to unfold the good news of Jesus Christ in progressively deep ways as children are spiritually formed into the image of Christ. We strive to foster a spiritually rich environment where our loving God captures their hearts and minds. We yearn for them to know Christ in a personal way and for them to have the abundant life He offers everyone who calls upon His name to be saved.

We understand that our Children’s Ministry is a family ministry where the church and home partner together in the spiritual training of children. We believe the home – the parents – are the primary agents for helping their children to follow Christ Jesus.

We take the safety of your child very seriously! Every adult in our classrooms has been interviewed, carefully trained, and has a current background check on file. We have a check-in and pick up policy for all our kids. There will be a volunteer available at our check-in stations to help you with the process.

Tell the next generation.
