Welcome to 

First Baptist Church provides a well-rounded Christian education program for children.  Through Bible study, worship, music, and missions activities the children are introduced to the love of Jesus Christ and His teachings.

Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”  Luke 18:16

Sunday Mornings

Sunday Mornings

Lighthouse Harbor

Each Sunday morning at 10:30 AM, excluding the first Sunday of the month, we host a children's worship service called Lighthouse Harbor, led by our Children's Pastor and children's volunteers. During this time, the children sing songs, hear a lesson, have snacks, play games, and do craft time. Lighthouse Harbor is for children age 4 to Grade 6 and is located on the second floor of our Children's building, and above the Welcome Center.

FBC Kids Camp, Trips, Musicals & More!

Summer camp

Each summer, our kids go to Eagle Sky Christian Camp in Piedmont, MO. Throughout the week, campers to do their own exciting activities, enjoy being a kid with campers their own age, and most importantly, grow closer with Christ. For more information about summer camp, contact the church office.

Kids Musicals

Our AWANA Choir rehearses, learns, and performs musicals on a yearly basis. Some musicals are based around Christmas, while others happen in the early summer. Stay tuned for upcoming musicals!


FBC Kids is never boring! Many other faith-filled fun trips they take have included in the past: pumpkin patches, corn mazes, zoos, ARK Encounter, Creation Museum, City Museum, caroling at local nursing homes, and more!
