First kids

"...CONNECTING WITH GOD, GROWING TOGETHER, & SERVING THE WORLD - ALL THROUGH JESUS CHRIST."

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.

NextGen 2017 Summer Schedule

During summer break, we won't have our regular FirstKids Wednesday nights. Instead, we've planned several big events that our kids will love! Save the calendar (left) and join us for the fun. :)


(First Kids events are in orange. 

KickStart Camp will include 3rd - 9th grades >> Register for it now!)

What is orange?

Orange is simple.

It's a strategy.

It starts with two individual influences in a child’s life: HOME + CHURCH

Alone, these two work hard to ensure that every child has a BETTER FUTURE

But when they’re COMBINED, the home and church will have a GREATER IMPACT


And that is… ORANGE.

    I NEED TO MAKE THE WISE CHOICE.

    I CAN TRUST GOD NO MATTER WHAT.

    I SHOULD TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WANT TO BE TREATED.

  • XP3 Middle School exists to help middle schoolers experience three things: wonder for who God is, discovery of who He created them to be, and passion for loving others. Everything we offer is designed to help middle schoolers begin to take ownership of their faith through these three basic truths:


    I WILL LOVE GOD BECAUSE HE WILL NEVER STOP LOVING ME.

    I WILL FOLLOW JESUS BECAUSE HE KNOWS ME BETTER THAN I KNOW MYSELF.

    I WILL LIVE OUT GOD’S STORY SO OTHERS CAN KNOW WHO JESUS IS.
