Jesus said, "Let the little children come unto me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
First Baptist welcomes children of all ages to participate in activities planned especially for them on Sundays and Wednesday evenings and in special programs throughout the year.
During church services, children ages birth - 4 years old may be taken to the nursery located on the second floor of the Educational Building. We have two adults in the nursery Sunday from 8:45 a. m. - 12:00 p. m. The children learn a Bible story each month with different crafts each week to correlate with the story. We feel that children are sacred gifts from God and it is our mission to help them learn about Him, even at an early age. We also provide nursery on Wednesday evenings from 6:45 - 8:00 pm.
K - 5th
Children from kindergarten through fifth grade attend worship service leaving after the Children's Story to attend Children's Church. There the children will learn a variety of Bible stories using a variety of learning techniques. We teach using music, movies, games and crafts. After Children's Church, we offer a Sunday School class for 3 years of age to 5th grade, as well.
Aside from Children's Church and Sunday School, we also hold Kids' Night Out events, attend Children's Rallies, Camp, host VBS and much more. There are several ways to get your children involved at First Baptist Church of Marietta!
