Ministries @ First
The mission of FBC KIDS is to teach our children how to love God and love people. As we partner alongside parents, our goal is to help children better understand God’s Word and His message of salvation. We want our children to see how the entire Bible points to Christ and the gospel. We also want them to learn how they can worship and serve Christ in order to make Him known throughout their community, nation, and world. As a part of FBC Martin, we want our kids to learn from an early age how to live the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-39) and fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
FBC KIDS Worship
A worship service designed for kids in K-5th Grade. FBC KIDS Worship meets monthly (on the 3rd Sunday).
The next Kids Worship will be May 21. We will meet in the Tree House during both morning worship services at 8:30 and 11:00.
Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 for Sunday School. Your children will learn to see how the truths found in the Bible can apply to their lives.
Classes are divided by grade level:
FBC KIDS Jam (Choir)
On Sunday’s at 5:00, we have choirs for all ages. Your children will learn to worship our God through song. We have two different choirs that meet on Sunday nights:
Choirs will resume September 2017.
On Sunday’s at 6:00, our Children’s Missions groups meet. These groups include Mission Friends, RA’s, and GA’s. During this time, your children will hear about what God is doing through missionaries around the world. They will also learn how to serve God and tell others about Jesus in their community, nation, and world.
Mission Groups will resume September 2017.
From 6:00-7:45 on Wednesday nights, AWANA meets for ages 3 years old (by August 15th) – 5th grade. Through AWANA, your children will commit Scripture to memory as they work through their handbooks each week. A typical AWANA night consists of Handbook Time, Large Group Time, and Game Time.
All Sparks and T&T (Kindergarten - 5th Grade) begin in the Treehouse (new kids' area upstairs).
AWANA will resume September 2017.
Fast Track is a 9 week course for 5th grade students that takes them from Genesis to Revelation. Along the way they discover Jesus Connections and see how Jesus really is central to all of Scripture. Jesus can be seen in every book of the Bible and all of Scripture points to Him. Fast Track serves as a foundation for 5th grade students as they transition out of the children’s ministry and into the youth ministry. Fast Track meets in the Red Room.
Fast Track will resume January 2018.
For 3rd – 5th grades, 252 meets twice monthly after school on Tuesday’s. Each month we have one meeting on our campus that includes Bible Study, snacks, games, and other activities. Our other meeting during the month is off campus, where we go to the bowling alley, the skating rink, Wee Play, and other special places. We pick your child up at school in the church bus. The cost for 252 is $5 a month or $45 for the entire school year (September-May).
252 will resume September 2017.
