What about your kids?

Your children are important to us at First Baptist Church.  We strive to provide for them a safe, loving environment where they can begin to learn about God and the Bible. 



Birth - Age 3

During Sunday School:  Classes are provided for this age group during Sunday School (9:45 AM).  You can come to the welcome center and a greeter will escort you to the preschool area, or you can come directly to the preschool entrance on Summer Street at the rear of the church.  A security system is in place to make sure that only those you designate can pick up your child.
