Our Children's Ministry is dedicated to helping children from birth to sixth grade experience the love of Jesus and grow in relationship with him. We believe that the first steps of faith begin early and pave the way for future faith experiences. First Baptist provides age-appropriate activities with teachers and volunteers who love God and are devoted to the the kids they serve, because we want all of our children to experience Christ's love and acceptance through a church that values them.

Our student ministry is made up of 7th - 12th graders hailing from various schools in the Jonesboro area. We strive to connect our teenagers to God through Bible study, worship, and relationships, as well as instill in them a desire to serve the world locally, nationally, and abroad. If you're looking for a group of friends to connect with, we would love for you to be a part of ours!
