Children’s Ministry

Our children’s programs provide a warm, creative environment where your child’s faith can be nurtured and energized. We employ a variety of fun activities to teach kids about God’s love and his plan for our lives.

We place a great emphasis on “Family Ministry” at FBC, which means we aim to supplement what parents are teaching their kids about their faith at home, and provide resources and support to parents to make this process successful.

Children’s classes for all ages are offered at the 10:30 AM Worship Service, with an additional hour of childcare offered for children ages 2-12 during theĀ 9:00 AM Discipleship Hour. At FBC we use the TRU Ministry curriculum that helps kids and their families connect to God, find their place in His big story, and respond to Him through the power of the Holy Spirit.

A family or “crying room” is available if you prefer to keep your little ones with you while you attend worship service, and older well-behaved children are absolutely welcome in the sanctuary.

Nursery (birth to 23 months)

We are fortunate to have a dedicated nursery room, staffed by loving women who have a heart for these littlest ones.

Toddlers (24-47 months)

Children who turn 2 years old are eligible to move up to our Toddlers class. This class used the Tru Blessing curriculum that teaches 2-3-year-old children that God made them, God loves them, and God is with them. Our teachers strive to provide age appropriate activities to engage these young ones and begin to teach them about God’s love for them.

Preschool/Kindergarten

Children who are potty trained can move to the preschool class, and will be there until they enter 1st grade. Tru Wonder curriculum piques the natural curiosity of preschool and kindergarten-age children and invites them to experience the wonder of who God is. We have long-term preschool teachers who ensure that the curriculum stimulates these young hearts without overwhelming them.

Elementary (1st-5th Grade)

Kids in 1st through 5th grade meet together for group worship time, and then split into smaller groups for age-appropriate bible lessons and activities. Our Tru Story curriculum reveals God’s incredible plan to elementary-age children and invites them to be a part of it!
