CHILDREN

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me." -  Matthew 19:14  

We are passionate about connecting children to Christ and to each other. We are here to support and encourage parents in their roles as Christ-followers and mentors of their children.

What happens on Sunday mornings?

*We are not currently meeting in person, but this is what a typical Sunday morning looks like when we are!

Preschool

Preschool Sunday School - 9:30 
Extended Care Teaching (ETC) - 11:00
Your little ones learn about God’s love in a variety of fun ways through song and play! Loving adults welcome your child into the classroom and are committed to caring for each child. We utilize age-appropriate methods and activities to teach children about Biblical truths and the love of Christ while you attend the service.

Elementary

Elementary  Sunday School | 9:30
KID Zone (Kids in Discipleship) | Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Kids have fun and learn through hands-on activities, followed by a brief large group opening session. Teachers then take  the children to classrooms divided by age for small group Bible study.
GAP Department  | 4th - 6th Grade
Here at FBCA, the stage between young childhood and the teen years is called GAP, where God And People meet.  
We begin with a large group time and  then teachers take  the children to classrooms divided by age for small group Bible study.
Family Church Service | 11:00 
Children join their parents and the larger church in the service. Worshipping with their parents and faith family is a critical part of children’s spiritual development.
Praise Connection | 11:00
Children ages Kindergarten - 3rd grade begin the 11:00 hour in the service with their family. Before the sermon begins they have the option of attending a children's service designed for them full of music and fun!

Special Connections

We value inclusion whenever possible. We do, however, offer a class for children, teens, and adults with special needs during both hours on Sunday Mornings. This class is staffed with teachers who extend special care to ensure the individual needs of each student are met and that they learn about God’s love for all of His children.
Email us to find out more about this class.

FAQ 
Security - Procedures - Conveniences

Safety & Security :
We take this aspect of our ministry very seriously at FBCA.  
  • All volunteers and staff members who work with minors submit to a nation-wide background check. 
  • Security cameras are placed in all early childhood classrooms. 
  • All children use a check-in system for an added layer of security. Check-in is a critical part of our security plan. Each child must be registered when he/she first attends. This process can be completed online before arrive to help your Sunday morning check-in to go smoothly. 
Nursing Mothers & Infant Care Room: 
In order to meet the needs of mothers we offer a Mothers’ Room. This room is equipped with rocking chairs, a changing area, and a live stream of the service so moms don’t miss out!  
Frequently Asked Questions:
  • Should we bring our own diapers and wipes?  Yes please. We have extras in case you forget, but you should come with whatever you might need for your baby during church. For example, pacifier, bottle, change of clothes, etc.
  • What if my baby cries while I am in the service?  You will be given a pager during the check-in process so that if needed we can reach you during the service.
  • Is Childcare available during both services?  Children, newborn - Pre-K may stay in their classrooms for both the 9:30 and 11am hours. 
  • When do my elementary aged children go to Sunday School? Sunday School is during the 9:30 hour. Children kindergarten - 3rd grade may also go to Praise Connection before the sermon begins during the 11:00 Service.
  • Where is the nursery? The nursery is located on the first floor in the middle of the building. The closest parking lot is the East lot, on the left side of the building.
