The Children's Ministery at First Baptist Chiefland consists of Three Essential Nutrients: We are Kingdom Expanding, focused on Heart Transformation, and Culture Shaping.
Children's ministry is one of our most exciting and fastest growing parts of our church. Here are some of the opportunities for children up through 5th grade:
Nursery (Birth to 24 months-Sundays and Wednesdays)
We offer a nursery for our families who attend Sunday morning Bible Study, Worship, and Wednesday evenings.
Sundays (10:45 am)
Children's Church: After Sunday School, children participate in a separate time of worship called Worship Kid Style. This is a Bible study and worship experience for elementary-aged children, all rolled into one. Building off themes that are fun and exciting for kids, Worship Kid Style is fast moving and allows allows each child to encounter God personally each week in a dynamic, interactive, high-tech environment.
Sunday Evenings (6:00 pm)
Games & Missions: Children from pre-k through 5th grade discover the excitement, challenges, and joy of missions. Students will learn how to pray effectively for world missions, trust God in all circumstances, and sharing their faith and take risks for the sake of the gospel. Games & Missions will take the faith in the student's heart and use it to join God's call the reach the world for Him. The children will also participate in games and learn how to root each game to Scripture. Each Sunday evening they will also enjoy a snack or treat (ice cream, cookies, cake, or popsicles).
Wednesdays (6:30-7:30 pm)
Toddlerific: Wiggling, squirming, poking, tumbling... children ages 2 & 3 are constantly exploring the world around them and learning something new from every experience. Children understand more and more of God through relationships, personal experiences and knowledge. As they move through emotional, social, physical and mental stages of development, they also move through stages of faith development. Toddlerific lessons introduce 2 and 3 years old to God by giving them concrete experiences that will prepare them to receive God's transforming power!
TEAM K.I.D.: For your pre-K/Kindergartners--TEAM K.I.D. (Kids in Discipleship) will bring Bible stories to life and bring a Bible truth home in a way pre-K/Kindergartners will understand. The various activities will show the children how God's Word relates to them - today!
Gospel Project: Our 1st through 5th graders spend time learning about how all of the Bible points to Christ. They will also experience different ways to serve their community through service projects to writing cards for the hurting and others in need.
