What can children do at First Baptist?

i-pKvQHsX-2613x1468 copySo much! On Sundays, our children participate in age graded Sunday School classes and enjoy a special children’s message during the worship service designed just for them. Fourth and fifth graders have the opportunity to lead the congregation into worship each week as acolytes, and the second Sunday of October is always Children’s Sabbath, a special worship service led by our children. Children also participate in Discipleship classes, Children’s Missions Weeks, Camp Prism, and Vacation Bible School, as well as occasional art experiences designed to nurture their growing spiritual lives. Outings are planned each month during the school year to give children the chance to deepen friendships and build community. On Wednesday nights our children enjoy age grouped choirs and Children on Mission, our missions education classes. We treasure children at First Baptist Greenville!
