Find out more about children's ministry at First Baptist

The Children’s Ministry at FBC is led by a team of dedicated individuals who dearly love the youngest members of the church body. This group addresses the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of children from infancy through 5th grade through biblical teaching, play areas with appropriate toys, aesthetically pleasing rooms, and caring, competent teens and adults from the church who have passed background checks.

Nursery

Infants are cared for in our clean and quiet nursery. Walkers through 2-year-olds will be in their own room getting to practice sharing, helping, and playing together. We ask you to give detailed instructions on what your baby/toddler will need while you are away. We want to keep every child on his/her normal routine as much as possible.

The 2- and 3-year-olds will be playing together and hearing a new Bible story each week. They get to listen to music, make a craft, and enjoy a snack. Please inform our volunteers of any allergies.

Preschool

Our Preschool room is for ages 4-5 (children must be potty trained) They meet during our first and second services and provide a different lesson for each service.The Preschool lessons also include making crafts, playing games and watching short stories.

Sunday School

Sunday School is held during first service for children ages K-5th.

Children will get to hear a new lesson each week, have opportunities to serve in the church and community, and enjoy fellowship time with each other. We will encourage the children to read from the Bible, pray with friends, play games, be kind to others, and love and trust in the Lord.

Children's Church

Children’s Church is offered during second service for ages K-2nd grade.

The children will go to church with their parents until the songs of worship are finished. A teacher will be up front to escort all the children to children’s church. They will have a Bible lesson each week. Depending on the lesson, they may play a game, make a craft, watch a short story, or do other activities related to the lesson. We teach the children about how to be a part of the church and that they are all important in the eyes of Jesus

Events

Each month we plan events for the children and their families.

We try to do 2 events per month, one in which the children serve in some way, and the other for fellowship and fun. Monthly newsletters are mailed out to inform families of upcoming events. We also have a Facebook page (FBC Muncie-Children’s Ministry Event Page) where we post event details and photos of recent children’s events.

Can I volunteer on the Children’s Ministry team or in a classroom?

Yes! We are always looking for those who have a heart to love and teach our children. You can contact Colleen Massoth for more info.

Does my child need to bring a Bible?

No. But they are welcome to if they have their own. In Sunday School and Children’s Church the kids will be looking over passages in the Bible. We will certainly provide a Bible if your child does not have one.

Can children bring an offering?

Absolutely! We encourage it! There are containers in each classroom in which the children can place their offering.
