Jesus and Me
We believe that learning about God should be FUN and EXCITING! Jesus and Me is a fun high-energy ministry that encourages children to know Jesus Christ and grow in a relationship to Him.
This program provides the building blocks of faith and basic awareness of God’s love for all people. It is an adventure in discovering the joy of missions as they learn about missions, pray for and give to missions, and do missions.
Young children will learn to use music to worship and praise the Lord. They will gain skills in pitch, and notation, through games, hands on activities, and singing. Bible stories and scripture are emphasized.

To keep our children safe we use a computer-based program, Lambs List, to sign in all children Babies-Kindergarten age. This program allows us to check in children and release them securely back to their parents. Lambs List is a convenient way for parents to be notified by text message if an emergency situation arises and to get customized information regarding their child immediately.
Once you are entered into our Lambs List program, check-in is easy. When you check in, you will receive security labels for you and your child. The child’s label includes his name, room assignment and any known allergies. This label is placed on the child’s back. Once your child is checked in you will escort him to the classroom. Your label will allow you to pick up your child at the end of the scheduled activities. You must present your label or a picture ID when picking up your child to maintain security.
We strive to maintain a secure environment for our children by locking down all areas during services and activities. We have deacons who monitor hallways and a Police Officer monitoring the outside as additional security. Parents can feel free to worship knowing that their children are safe and well cared for.
Little children can easily pick-up and spread germs one-to-another. In prevention of the spread of germs, we clean and disinfect each room after every service.
Small Steps Child Development Center
Small Steps, a ministry of First Baptist Church, is a half-day preschool for one year olds (Walking) through pre-kindergarten five year olds. We offer a comprehensive, academic curriculum (Pinnacle) in a Christ-Centered environment.
