OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS. That 's what kids ministry at First Baptist is all about. Kids Ministry at First Baptist is Christ Centered. Our team, our time, our schedule, our special events, all our stuff is about Jesus, the heart of the Gospel! ALL of it is about leading children to know, love and follow Christ, God's only Son and our Savior all the days of their lives.
So how do we do this? We make a HUGE deal about these 8 things!
1. Digging into the Word of God each week.
2. Weekly communicating the Gospel clearly and intentionally
3. Making much of God's grace and mercy.
4. Building relationships with kids and parents each week.
5. Partnering with parents by connecting what we learn each Sunday to the home.
6. Sharing God's great mission for His people here and everywhere in the whole world.
7. Encouraging children to use their talents in ministry.
8. Oh yeah, having lots of fun!
