Children

“…and a little child shall lead them.”

Isaiah 11:6 NRSV

At FBC, we believe in equipping children to be leaders in this world by being followers of Jesus.

We do this by ensuring that children at FBC are integrated into the life of the church: they are encouraged and loved by multiple generations, they are taught in kid-centered activities on Wednesday evenings, they are mentored by older youth, and they are involved and welcomed in worship.

Whether waving palms, being acolytes during Advent, praying in worship, or helping to take up the offering, children are valued and welcomed in the worship of FBC. In addition, we offer Mission Kids on Wednesday nights that begin with time together with youth in the gym, then breaks off into age-appropriate activities to teach about God’s love for them and for the world that God so loves.

The Christian formation and education of elementary school students is important to us—faith development begins at an early age.

Jessica Cook, Chair of the Children’s Ministry Committee, and a team of adult volunteers lead a discipleship-based program for grades K-5.
