Classes for Grades 3, 4 & 5 meet at 9:30AM each Sunday in the C wing upstairs.
Classes for Grades 1 & 2 meet at 11:00AM each Sunday in the A wing upstairs.
Each Sunday, kids in Grades 1 - 5 will experience God's Power in SURGE!
We will tap into the power source of God's Word and learn how to let in shine through our lives!

Kingdom Kids - Special Needs Ministry
The Kingdom Kids Ministry provides a student or adult buddy for our friends with special needs, helping them be more successful in a regular Connection Group.
If your child would benefit from being a part of the Kingdom Kids Ministry, please email email@example.com and let us know so we can find a buddy for your child.
If you are interested in serving as a buddy in the Kingdom Kids Ministry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to help you find your place of service.
We, the church, are here to partner with you in raising children who love the Lord. As a parent, you make the biggest impact on your children.
The First Kids Children's Ministry of First Baptist Church wants to help your child learn:
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
When your child is in our ministry, we will teach these basic concepts through God's Word. We have approximately 40 hours a year to share this message with your child. You, as parents, however have over 3000 hours a year. We want to partner with you to help your child learn these core principles. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We are here to help you be the best parent you can be as we work together to build your child into a spiritual champion.
First Visit To First Kids
Where do I park if I have children?
We suggest you park in the South Parking Lot. Enter through the Main South Entrance and look for the large red wall.
Where is the Elementary Ministry Located?
Once in the Commons, look for the large red wall and take the stairs to the second floor. The First Kids Elementary Ministry is at the top of the stairs.
How do I know which class my child should go to?
Please stop by the Elementary Welcome Center and one of our volunteers will assist you in filling out a visitor slip with pertinent information about your child. The volunteer will walk you and your child to the correct class.
What is the Sunday Schedule?
We have something for your children all morning, 9:30 – Noon, so that you may attend a Connection Group and/or Worship.
Grades 1 and 2:
9:30 Surge Worship in the Warehouse
11:00 Connection Groups in the A wing
Grades 3, 4, & 5:
9:30 Connection Groups in the C wing

How do children check-in?
We use a computerized check-in system so that children may check in and get a name tag each time they are on campus. A Teacher Receipt label will also be printed for each child. This receipt is given to the teacher as the child arrives in the classroom. Parents of children, 2nd grade and younger, will also receive a Parent Pick Up Receipt. This receipt should be presented to the teacher by the parent or authorized adult at pick up.
Once I drop off my child on Sunday, where do I go?
We offer Connection Groups at 8:30, 9:30 and 11:00 AM and Worship Services at 9:30 and 11:00AM on Sunday Mornings. An evening worship service also takes place Sundays at 6:30PM. Elementary children attend the evening worship service with their families.
