At FOB we believe children are a priority and we always aspire to have a strong, vibrant Children’s Ministry! September Adkins is our Children’s Director and she has a large support team who really love children. We go all out when it comes to children as we offer crafts, teaching, worship, small groups, and many great events each year. Please call September if you have any questions.
On Sundays, children (ages 3 and up) are dismissed from services during the preaching of the Word to go to their classes where they learn more about God on their level of understanding.
Nursery (Birth to 35 months): We have a wonderful Nursery staff and helpers who are trained to work with little ones. They meet in two large rooms decorated with wonderful wall murals to keep it fun and exciting.
Beginner’s Church (3 year olds): Our beginner’s class is tailored to our precious 3 year olds who are introduced to Jesus in a loving atmosphere with hands on Bible instruction. This class has Bible stories, praise & worship, play, and lots of hands on crafts.
Jr. Kids Church (4 & 5 year olds): Our Jr. Kid’s Church is held in their own Noah’s Ark classroom where the Bible comes alive. Hands-on Bible curriculum is taught along with praise & worship DVD’s, fun rafts, & snacks! This class rotates from station to station keeping all learners engaged as they experience Jesus first hand
Kid’s Church (6-10 year olds): Kids Church is totally sold out to reaching elementary kids from every culture and background! We function as a family and God is our Heavenly Father. Christianity is a lifestyle and we equip children to live for Jesus. Our sermons are exciting and life applicable. Puppets model acceptable behavior in church, school, and at home. Our Bible memory verses are rewarded with Bible bucks and the kids have their very own Bible Book Store. Nickelodeon style games are played where kids learn their Bibles while having Fun. Our praise and worship ushers in the presence of the Lord and our kids experience His presence.
Lil K (3-5 year olds): Wednesdays 7-8:30 PM. We provide a fun and simple way to reach preschoolers with the transformational truth of God’s Word. Through creatively taught bible stories on DVD and active learning, preschoolers can begin to realize that church is fun and God’s love for them is real.
Kids Ministry (6 years old– 5 th Grade): 7-8:30 PM This ministry focuses more on transformation than information. It’s not just about biblical stories, but a biblical worldview. This ministry strives to teach God’s truth in ways that impact a child’s choices and actions. Kids must be needed, valued, and connected. By teaching them to develop a biblical worldview, we can ignite an awakening that will impact generations to come. Wednesday nights are about engaging with Jesus and having high energy fun! * We are currently in the midst of developing a new program with a new name to be released around Thanksgiving time so keep watching for updates!
