children's Ministry

Who We Are

Children's Ministry at FCBC focuses on making disciples of Jesus by pointing children to the all-satisfying person of Jesus Christ. We desire for children to know they are loved and valued by God as well as cared for by our ministry team.

What We Do

Each week we provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to explore and discover their faith. We have classes at 9:30 am and 11:15 am for Nursery through 5th grade. Our Gospel Project curriculum is a weekly Bible study that helps all ages dive deep into the big story of the Bible—God’s plan to rescue His people through His Son, Jesus Christ.

How to Get Involved

Classrooms for 0-2 year olds are open ten minutes prior to the start of the service. 3 year olds - 5th graders are invited to worship with their families and then are dismissed into their classrooms. If you are interested in serving in the classroom, please fill out this form:

New Here?

If you are new to FCBC, please enter one of the two main entrances and make your way to the Children’s Ministry wing. We have dedicated volunteers ready to help get your child checked into our system and usher you to the appropriate classrooms. Each volunteer has been through a background check and training to ensure the safety of our children. Our assistants and teachers are servants that are called to this ministry; they love what they do.

Interested in Serving?

“It takes more than parents to raise a child. It takes a family — a large family. Thank God that He has given us the church to be the family of God and blessed us all with the privilege of raising children.” - Mark Bates
We are currently in need of loving assistants and teachers! We believe that the parents in our body are not solely responsible for the nurture and admonition of the children. It is the responsibility of the entire body. Our goal is not so children can sit through a service quietly just going through the motions. Our goal is for them to hear about the Savior, and by God's grace, be changed by Him! Please fill out this form if you’re interested in serving and reach out to Sara Vandenbos, FCBC Children’s Ministry Director.

What Can You Do?

  • Bring your child to church consistently. The continuity helps your child feel more comfortable with us and helps us get to know them better, so we can build a relationship.
  • Read the parent email we send each week that summarizes the lesson and talk to your child about it throughout the week.
  • Help your child memorize scripture. We have a new memory verse every couple of weeks.

Upcoming Events

Vacation Bible School

At this year's VBS your child will learn to "Be Transformed" as we focus on Romans 12:2 during the week's activities. Children in Kindergarten (5 years old as of 9/1/2023) through 5th grade are invited to participate! Children's grades will be based on the 2023-2024 school year.

* If you are volunteering for VBS and have a child who is younger than Kindergarten, they are welcome to participate in our volunteer VBS childcare. The volunteer children will have their own mini VBS.  Please register them in the appropriate area so we can plan for their attendance.
