Children's Ministry

 

Deuteronomy 6:4-7 instructs parents to
teach their children to love the Lord with all one’s
heart, soul, and strength. Jesus further tells us to
love our neighbors as ourselves.
To fully support parents and to
teach our children to become
followers of Jesus,
First Baptist Church’s Children’s Ministry
seeks to nurture and
guide a child’s heart, head and hands.  

 

 

HEART
being and growing in their relationship with God, others and self.

HEAD
learning the stories of the Bible;
growing in knowledge of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as well as appropriate Bible concepts; and developing Bible skills and the ability to apply Bible truths to real life.

HANDS
serving others by putting God’s love into action.

Faith Formation Milestones:

MILESTONE #1: BABY DEDICATION
Baby dedication services are held on the 3rd Sunday of each month during both worship hours. The service provides parents with an opportunity to dedicate and commit themselves as Christian parents. Parents are required to attend a one hour dedication milestone class prior to the service. Please contact Candi Brown to schedule your dedication service and sign up for the next Dedication Milestone Class.


MILESTONE #2: PROMOTION FROM KINDERGARTEN TO FIRST GRADE
Each May, our kindergarten children are “promoted” to our older elementary age division. In addition to participating in a wider variety of children’s ministry programs, this is also the time they join their parents in worship services. A one-hour Promotion Milestone class is offered to assist parents during the transition to the elementary program. In addition to program information, we will offer resources to help parents and children meaningfully engage together in worship. Please contact Candi Brown to register for the Promotion Milestone Class.


MILESTONE #3: FOLLOWING JESUS IN BAPTISM
During the early elementary years, children begin to ask questions about baptism and becoming a Christian. The Baptism Milestone class provides information on stages of a child’s spiritual development and the key signs indicating readiness for making this life decision. Guidelines for leading a child to Christ and practical ways to nurture their relationship with Christ are offered. Please contact Candi Brown to register for the next Baptism Milestone Class.
