EQUIPPING KIDS TO

KNOW, GROW, & SHOW GOD’S LOVE:

KNOW the character of God and the joy of a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.

GROW in understanding of who Jesus Christ is and what He has accomplished for us.

SHOW the world around us the hope we have in Jesus Christ.

 

The Children’s Ministries of FBC meet in the Kids’ PARK which is designed to provide a safe and fun atmosphere to present the Bible in an age-appropriate way.  From Kindergarten to 6th Grade, our goal is to provide an environment that allows kids to experience and hear the transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Children will consistently be challenged to live for Christ through Bible study, mission education, discipleship, prayer, and worship.

Experience God Full Blast

SUNDAYS at 9:00 am

Each week God’s Word is presented by dedicated leaders in a fun and interactive format designed just for kids through:

· Large Group – All kids (K-6th) meet together in in the PARK to study the Bible and hear how it applies to them. Video, skits, and interactive teaching help children go a little deeper in their understanding of God’s Word.

· Worship – Children can express their awe of who God is by praising Him in worship through song.  

· Small Group – Children meet with their peers and a trusted leader to ask questions and grow with one another. These small groups give every child a group of friends and a place where they belong every Sunday morning.

WEDNESDAYS from 6:30—7:45 pm (September—May)

Awana is a Bible-centered children’s program offering Bible memorization with award-based incentives, games, and a clear age-appropriate message.  Clubbers are recognized for their accomplishments in a special ceremony at the end of each Awana year.

 

The goal of Awana is to reach children and their families with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.
