Family Ministry


We at First Baptist Church value children as a great gift and responsibility from God. We desire to partner with parents during this fun phase of discovery to build a firm foundation of faith. Our leaders realize the importance of these formative years and that their experiences determine the kind of person your child will become. We want our children to become all that God intended them to be.
