Schoolage Ministries

First Baptist has a vibrant schoolage ministry with opportunities for fun, fellowship and worship.

Bible Friends

Children are invited to Bible Friends after the children’s message at the 11:00 AM Worship Service. During this time we worship and learn about God in an age-appropriate environment.

Missions & Music

We offer Missions and Music for both preschool and schoolage children on Wednesday nights from September to May. We hope to make our children aware of the many opportunities available for ministry in our community, our country and around the world.

Schoolage Choir

Our Schoolage Choir is open to children in 1st to 5th grade. They practice on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm.. We believe that this growing ministry will be the foundation of the children’s music appreciation.

Vacation Bible School

We have a week-long vacation bible school for all ages each summer. For more information be sure to check out our calendar, or call the church office at (540) 662-5367.
