CHILDREN'S MINISTRY - VOLUNTEER

Looking for a place to plug in?  We have a place for you!  The Children's Ministry can use your gifts, talents, and/or skills on Sunday morning and Wednesday evenings.  You would be surprised at the different ways you can be used of God to reach kids for Christ. 

We believe that children matter to God and therefore they matter to us! We want to reach boys and girls for God. That is our calling and our calling is big and urgent.

YOU are what makes First Baptist Children's ministry work.

You are on the front lines making an eternal difference.  Without you, our mission would be empty words.  With you, we can change the life of one child at a time and therefore change the world.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEART TO SERVE GOD THROUGH INVESTING IN THE LIVES OF CHILDREN!
