Kingdom Kid Registration

For all children activities, parents must have a Kingdom Kid Registration Form filled out for each child. This covers all activities that your child can participate in, such as Kid's Camp and VBS. Please download this form and bring it with you to the Children's Department.


Kingdom Kids

At First Baptist Church we have ministries that reach out to children and their families. If you have a child between the ages of 4 - 5th Grade, we have a place for them in one of our ministries. All of our workers have been trained and gone through our "Safe Church Policy" class along with background checks. If you are looking to serve God in one of our Children's Ministries read below on how you can help. Come and visit our Clubhouse to get more information about our Children's Ministries and/or follow us on facebook. 


Kids Worship

KIDS WORSHIP is every Sunday morning at 8:30 and 11:00 during our normal worship services.

What can you do? Lead crafts. Lead music. Lead prayer time. Bring your children/grandchildren. Or just come and play.

Kids Bible Study

KIDS BIBLE STUDY is every Sunday morning at 9:45. This is our time to really dig into God’s word and discover what He has to say to us.

What can you do? Teach a class (all the time or on a rotation). Assist a class. Serve as a substitute. Bring your children/grandchildren.

Kids Praise

KIDS PRAISE is evey Wednesday evening from 5 - 6 pm.

Worshipping and praising God through music arts. Children sing, play hand bells and learn interpretive movement as they practice for special events so they can share their love of music.


Wednesday's from 5:45 PM  - 7:30 PM
Kingdom Kids’ Clubhouse

This is a packed time of games and Bible lessons. The children obtain badges as they complete their memory verses and studies. What an awesome feeling of accomplishing one of God’s commands to “hide in our hearts” the word of God.

What can you do? Listen to verses. Read sections for non-reading children. Donate items to the store. Share your story at one of our mission or council times. Bring your children/grandchildren.

Children's Ministry News

Just a reminder to sign up for the Flood Free 2023 Banquet. Childcare is available with a kid friendly menu. Kids Praise is beginning to rehearse for the upcoming Christmas season presentation, we need your children to be a part of it at 5pm on Wednesdays! You can eat at 4:15pm to give the kiddos extra time to eat. We are already gearing up for Trunk or Treat. Sign up to bring your (car) trunk and donate some candy to a sweet cause. Awana is going strong and we could use some helpers to listen to the children say their verses. Don’t forget to come worship with us on Sunday morning, too! The Children’s Clubhouse is an exciting place to be, come join us!
