What is the heart of Children’s Ministry at Faith Baptist Church?
At FBC, we know that children are a heritage from the Lord (Psalm 127:3) and that the primary responsibility for their spiritual nurturing belongs to parents (Deut. 6:5-9). Therefore, the Children’s Ministry equips and encourages parents in their vital role of teaching “the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders he has done . . . so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments.” (Psalm 78:4, 6-7)
FaithKids Sunday School – Sunday morning. During Sunday School, children from ages 3 years – 5th grade enjoy engaging, age-appropriate lessons through the Truth78 curriculum. Truth78 partners with parents to help future generations become secure in their convictions, grounded in the Word of God, and unshakable in their faith. Childcare is also provided for children from ages 6 months – 2 years.
FaithKids Care – Sunday morning. During our worship services, we offer care for children birth through four years of age. Children five years of age and older accompany their parents into the worship service.
