Children's Ministries

Welcome to Children's Ministries at FBC Milton. Our children's ministries seek to provide a safe and exciting environment allowing the children to experience the love of God each week through Bible stories and activities. Our ministries serve birth through 5th grade.

Sunday Mornings

Our nursery is located adjacent to our coffee shop. We offer a security paging system and loving, experienced volunteers to share the love of Jesus with your children. We offer extended care for birth - 3 years of age during Sunday School and our morning worship service.

During our Sunday School, our Preschool Children (ages 4-K), meet in the lower level of Building B. After Sunday School, the children will remain there for Lil'K worship. After the morning worship service, you may pick up your child in Building B.

Our 1st - 5th Grade children meet in The Way. Their classrooms are decorated with beautifully painted murals depicting the life of Christ. We begin with Snacks in the Square, a fun time of fellowship, singing & snacks. We also have a children's library for your child's reading enjoyment.

At the conclusion of Sunday School, we ask that you meet your children in the sanctuary for Morning Worship. We offer a Children's Worship for boys and girls, 1st - 3rd grade. Children will be called our during the service and escorted to their special service by our adult volunteers. After the morning worship, you may pick up your child in The Way.

During the school year, First Baptist offers AWANA for children 4 years old - 5th grade. We meet in the gym at 5:30 pm and conclude at the end of evening worhsip.

Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. Awana reaches kids for Christ through fun, Scripture-rich experiences that lead them to know, love and serve Him. Awana equips ministry leaders and parents to reach and disciple kids who impact their generation with the gospel. God is at work changing the world through the evangelism and long-term discipleship ministry of Awana. — Awana Clubs International

Wednesday Evenings

Worship Quest is the name of our Wednesday evening Children's Ministry Program. During the 5:30 - 7:00 pm time block, our children learn about missions and worship through fun, yet relevant, age-appropriate activities. At First Baptist, we place a high priority on teaching the next generation the things of the Lord. Worship Quest is an integral part of this training.

The Missions component includes Mission Friends for Preschoolers, GA's (Grils in Action) for girls in 1st - 5th grades, and RA's (Royal Ambassadors) for boys in 1st - 5th grades.

In Mission Friends, preschoolers will participate in activities and hear Bible stories that show them Jesus loves them and people all over the world. They will learn about missionaries and how they can be helpers, too.

This year's Girls in Action theme, "Meet Me in the City", will take the girls to some of the busiest places on earth to learn what missionaries are doing to share Jesus. The girls will participate in mission projects that allow them to share Jesus with their own communities.

"As a Royal Ambassador, I will do my best to become a well-informed, responsible follower of Christ." This is the R.A. Pledge that the boys put into action each week by participating in various mission projects. The boys also learn about the 10 virtues of an R.A. throughs tudying the Bible and memorizing scripture.
