First Kids is for children in grades 1-6. We work to continue to build upon the foundation started during preschool. We do this by teaching our kids about the character of God and the examples of His grace through the pages of Scripture. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by creating an environment that promotes an opportunity of growth and understanding. Kids participate in large-group worship and teaching, as well as age-divided small groups where they can learn more about the lesson, ask questions and build relationships with their peers and group leaders. These six years are all about transition and growing and we want to foster that through our various ministry activities. Each summer, we offer a week of Vacation Bible School as well as various activities for our children.

THINGS TO KNOW WHEN YOU BRING YOUR CHILD TO FBC:
On your first visit, greeters will help you check in and locate the appropriate classroom for your child. Computer kiosks are located in the hallways for you to check your child in on subsequent visits. Your child will receive a name tag that indicates your child’s classroom. Parents will also receive a receipt for pick-up, which will need to be presented when you return to pick up your child. Preschool parents will also sign your child in at the classroom door to help us with any health or special care needs. Teachers will be delighted to greet you and your child and to help your child make the transition into the classroom.
Genesis Lab utilizes the latest in sound, light, and computer technology to present the truths of God's word to our children in a high-energy, attention-grabbing, life-changing way. From the moment your child arrives, they become an active participant in the worship experience. Please feel free to experience this with your child...we encourage it!
Genesis L.A.B. is a unique worship environment where the truths of the Bible come alive! The name Genesis L.A.B. reminds us that "In the beginning God created" us in a spectacular way for His glory, so our right response is to Learn about the Bible so we can know God and follow His plan for us.
The children will study Scripture through interactive lessons and praise Him with joyful music. Genesis L.A.B. engages the minds and hearts of children by creatively blending science, drama, and fun! Genesis L.A.B. also helps kids understand Scriptural principles and develop a love for God and His church.
AWANA Sparks (K-2nd Grade)
AWANA Sparks is a fun, scripture filled time for Kindergarten-2nd grade. Awana Sparks includes Games, Handbook time, and teaching time. Children make new friends and learn scripture from the Bible! AWANA stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” from 2 Timothy 2:15.
Sparks builds on the material taught in our preschool club. The aim of the curriculum is to take youngsters a step deeper into God's Word. Our sparks leaders involve the kids in meaningful activities such as drama, games, Bible stories, and memory verses.
XPLODE (3rd-4th Grades)
Xplode is an exciting ministry to children in 3rd and 4th grades on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 PM until 7:30 PM. Children will be dropped off and picked up in this room. Each night will consist of games, music, large and small group discussions. Becoming familiar with the Bible and learning to use our Bibles is our goal for Xplode. We know God has special blessings for your child as we Xplode in Christ through Prayer, Love, Obedience, Discipleship and Encouragement.
BLAST (5th-6th Grades)
BLAST (Believers Love and Serve Together) is a ministry to middle school age students who want to have a wild and crazy time while experiencing the love of Christ. The apostle Paul said that he was "all things to all people in order to win them to Christ!" In BLAST we try to show middle school students that there is a God who cares and loves them right where they are.
Please let us know how we can serve you and if you have any questions.
