Children's Ministries

“He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:14-16

Who Are We?

At FBC Kids we believe that providing your children with an opportunity to become a part of their church COMMUNITY they will learn the COMPASSION of Christ’s love and be able to share that with others when given various SERVICE opportunities.

FBC Kids Hall provides a child-friendly environment for children from birth thru 5th grade.  Safety and sanitation are our top priorities. Therefore, we make sure that all of our workers are appropriately background checked and provided with opportunities for training to better meet your child’s spiritual and developmental needs.


Compassion and Service

FBC Kids is devoted to teaching your children the compassion and love of Christ. In doing this we provide many opportunities weekly for their spiritual growth and development.


We look forward to seeing you on the Kids Hall!

From Our Families

“We raised both of our children in this children’s ministry.  The faces may not be the same as they were 25 years ago, but this ministry still has Jesus at its center and we are enjoying watching our granddaughter now grow up in this ministry. She is learning to love Jesus and serve others.”
