Where do my kids go?
We have special activities and worship services for babies, preschoolers, children, Middle School, and High School through our children, and youth ministries in our historic church facility (Building A). We have nursery for babies, children church for preschoolers and children, and teen church for middle school and high school students. Of course, you’re welcome to bring your kids to worship with you (but they’ll probably enjoy our age-level ministries much more!). Our check-in process is quick and easy, and only you can pick your child or children up. Our leaders for this ministry undergo a thorough background check before they’re allowed to serve with children. Hence, you kids are safe at First Baptist!
