Opportunities for Children & Youth
Childcare/Nursery Care — We offer childcare for children of all ages
during the 9:30 AM education time so that parents who wish to attend
an adult class can do so. We also offer Nursery care for our youngest
children (infants up to preschool age) throughout the 11:00 AM
worship time. Both of these care opportunities are provided by a
highly skilled caregiver who is certified in Early Childhood Education
and who has many years of experience with First Baptist Church.
Where to find it: Look for childcare opportunities in the Infant/Toddler
Room on the main level of the church.
Children & Youth Classes — This year we will be piloting a new education experience for our children and youth, beginning on Sunday, September 28th, as we move to a one-room schoolhouse structured classroom and a rotation-style curriculum with multiple learning stations designed for various ages and learning styles. Children from preschool age to grade five will meet together with adult teachers and Middle School /Senior High Youth as leaders and mentors. This class will meet during the 11:00 worship hour and will begin after the “Stepsitters” children’s message. The class will incorporate music, singing, movement, story-telling, and hands-on projects, all guided by the excellent curriculum, Come Join the Circle, which seeks to teach not only about the stories of faith but about the work of social justice and advocacy in the world and to empower children and youth to act and to do good out in the wider world. Where to find it: Look for our multiage class in the Dove Room, located on the lower level of the church.
Special Classes for Youth — Short-term specialized classes for Middle School and Senior High Youth will be offered throughout the year. These opportunities will be open to all Middle School and Senior High Youth and will be advertised as they arise.
***Children/Youth who are visiting with us on any given Sunday will be welcome to attend classes, remain in worship, or be in Nursery Care, as they desire***
