At First Baptist, we value children and the opportunity to introduce your child to Jesus Christ. Our aim is to provide a safe, interactive, Christ-centered environment where your child will grow in their relationships with their peers and more importantly with God. Stop by the Children’s Welcome Desk and we will be glad to escort your child to their Life Group.

Baby Dedication May 10
Baby dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publically your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, so your child will develop a desire to love God and love others. It also provides us (the church family) to express our desire to partner with you on your parenting journey.
Each year we hold a baby dedication ceremony during both services on Mother’s Day.

This summer, for one full week, our kids will explore uncharted territory where they will begin to understand that obedience to God can lead them beyond the expected. So kids, toss the map, stick close to your guide, and prepare to listen for God’s direction in this journey that is unknown to us, but known by Him.
