Children's Ministry

Our Mission at FBC Douglas is to Love God, Love Others and Make Disciples. The goal of our children's ministry is to plant this mission into the hearts of our children.  Following the Great Commandments (Matthew 22:37-39) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) given to us by Jesus, this mission will set the foundation for their lifelong walk with Christ. Our children's Ministry strives to partner with parents to help children experience and understand what it means to know Christ, accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior, and live out a mission-focused life. We as part of FBC Douglas, Celebrate as Worshipers, Communicate the Gospel, Connect to the the Community, and Contribute to the Kingdom.  We teach children about how Bible Study, Worship, Participation, Church Membership, and Tithing are a part of their lives as they find and develop their relationship with Christ.

What to Expect?

From the time your child Enters FBC Douglas, we want him/her to feel safe and comfortable. We have a parking lot at the rear of the church that is available for parent parking. As families enter the building, we have greeter and check in stations in the preschool and children's entrance areas. We will need parent information and children and parent will receive safety tag information. The parents will present their copy of the safety tag in order to pick up children. All of our staff and Volunteers have background checks and training through the MinistrySafe System. All of our Preschool and Children's Classes are on secure hallways and leaders and teachers are available to speak with parents about any special needs that your child may have. 


What grades are included in Children's Ministry?

       Our ministry covers children Birth to PreK in the Preschool area, and K-5th grade in the children's area. 

Where do Preschool and Children meet?

        We have a secure area for our Preschool and Children Departments. Check-in for these areas are in the Main Lobby of our Family Ministry Center. Once Children have been checked in they will head to classes on the Preschool hall for babies to PreK and the Children's Wing for K-5th. Children's wing pick up is back at the check in station area. Preschoolers are picked up from their classroom. 

Can I Volunteer?

          Volunteers are essential to the ministries of First Baptist! Those interested in volunteering in our Preschool and Children's Ministries should contact our ministry office to find out about the opportunities to serve. All of our staff and Volunteers are subject to certain requirements including training and background checks through the Ministry Safe organization.
