Kids at FIRST

Welcome to fbc Kids

Newborn through 6th Grade

Our goal at FBCkids is to introduce your kids to the real Jesus at each phase of life. Our teams provide a safe, fun, and engaging experience where your child can be paired with a leader to guide them through service and into a closer relationship with 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. The claim check code you receive at check-in is unique to your family and provides extra security at pickup.

Kids are a priority

Here at First, we make our children's ministry a huge priority! We know that kids are the future, and we want to invest in them well! We do this by providing weekly programing and events that center on learning about Jesus, and what it means to follow God with your whole heart!

We also have FUN! We play games, and laugh, and make  church an enjoyable place where kids can be KIDS.

Birth through Pre-K (4 years old)

Our Little Kids' Ministry is intentional. Our first priority is showing children Jesus' love. Our continual prayer is that FBC Little Kids' Ministry will be a safe, creative, fun and loving place for your child.  

All of our employees and children's volunteers have completed background checks and childcare training so you can rest assured that your little ones are safe and cared for. 
What your child will experience:
  • Free play: Activity based sensory areas such as kitchen and home areas, train/car tables, blocks and more!
  • Large group lessons: Bible stories, music & learning how to apply the Bible to our lives.
  • Playground/snack time: when weather permits we will go outside to our playground, located next to the Children's building.  When it is rainy, we will have indoor activities or a Bible based video.  We try to provide healthy snacks, and always have gluten free snacks for those who need them.
  • Arts & Crafts:  the craft that your child makes will usually reflect the main point of the lesson.

Kinder through 4th grade

Kids Church (8:30am & 11:00am)

Because we want kids to experience and appreciate the value of worship, we have our children (K through 6th grade) attend the first part of our worship services with their families. Prior to the Pastor’s sermon, children K - 6th grade are dismissed to Kid's Church and Club 56.

We teach Bible truths through creative methods such as video, object lessons, skits, and crafts!

Sunday School (9:45am)

The focus for our Sunday School is threefold:

  • To worship the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • To build relationships with other kids and adult leaders.
  • To learn to apply God’s Word through exciting activities and Bible verse memorization.

All of these goals are met in a fun, safe, active environment for children.


5th & 6th grade

Come grow in Jesus while having lots of fun!Club 56 is a program designed exclusively for 5th & 6th graders. Club 56 is a great place for your "tween" to learn more about what it means to follow Christ, and establish good faith-based habits and boundaries before they face the pressures of middle school. We'll have games, relevant lessons, small groups led by adults that love them, and camps and events throughout the year!

Wednesdays (6:15pm-7:45pm)

Come hang out in the Club 56 Room during the school year. There are many activities throughout the year and summer camp.

Sundays (8:30am, 11:00am & 9:45am)
