Children’s Ministry

At First Baptist Church, we believe that children are blessings from God. We are committed to guiding children to develop a life-long, loving relationship with God!

Our Children’s and Preschool Ministries exist to partner with families as we share the love of Jesus Christ with children and guide them to become disciples of Christ. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you in the spiritual development of your child as we provide a safe, nurturing environment.

Upcoming Events

We are headed to St. Louis February 9th & 10th for a special conference especially for preteens! The theme this year is 3E. We’ll discover how Kingdom Work has to do with Everyone, Everything, and Everywhere! Joining lots of other kids the same age, we will learn biblical truths presented in kid-friendly ways, worship, play games, and build relationships. The conference is held at Harvester Christian Church in St. Peter’s.  We are spending the night at First Baptist Church nearby. (Bring air mattresses/ sleeping bag) For extra fun and more relationship-building opportunities, we are going to The Magic House in St. Louis for a few hours before returning to FBC JC by 5pm.

Cost is $75 and includes conference fee, lodging, breakfast, lunch, and Magic House admission. Students will also need to bring cash for supper at Chick- Fil- A  on the way there.
