Preschool to 4th grade
With parents being the primary disciple maker of their child, our mission is to come along side parents in that process and help share to each child the good news of Jesus Christ. We are grateful to have the opportunity to minister to children and teach them the Word of God. We want to provide the children with fun and safe learning opportunities and assist them in becoming the young person that God plans for them to be. Our goal is to accomplish this by providing the kids with, a clean and safe nursery, first friends weekday preschool, children’s life group, kid’s church, kid’s choir, bible drill, Wednesday night kid’s activities, summer vacation bible school, children’s camp at Falls Creek, and more. Please contact Jim Hodson if you have any questions about the children’s ministry at First Baptist Durant.
