about first kids
We are passionate about partnering with families in raising the next generation to know Christ, grow in faith, and go out into the world as passionate disciples of Jesus. At FBG, your kids will encounter the amazing love of God through age-appropriate songs, dance, games, activities, and lessons that all point them to a life-changing relationship with our Heavenly Father.
All our activities happen in a safe and secure environment, led by our gifted, passionate, and background-checked team of workers and volunteers.
Above all, our goal is to inspire, encourage, and equip you to be the primary spiritual leader in your child's life.
Kids birth-Pre-K will love Sundays in First Kids! After checking into our secure check-in system, kids will dive into a morning of dynamic biblical learning facilitated by a gifted team of background-checked preschool volunteers. You can expect your child to walk away from a Sunday at First having experienced exciting large group worship, foundational Bible lessons, and age appropriate application activities. Above all, we hope Sunday mornings provide a firm foundation for you as a parent to engage in your child’s spiritual development, giving you the resources needed to act as the primary disciple in their lives.
Wednesday Nights consist of age-appropriate games, songs, and activities aimed at facilitating scripture memorization. Understanding that most kids spend the day at preschool or inside the home, our volunteers strive to keep Wednesday evenings as high-energy as possible. This creates an environment where kids can learn, while also giving them an outlet to play and have fun. Each week, lessons are centered on a specific scripture and the memorization of it. It is our hope that parents are drawn into taking an active role in helping their children commit God’s word to memory and hiding it in their hearts forever.
Sunday mornings for kids K-5th grade are a time of exploration. We encourage kids to take the foundational truths they learn in preschool and EXPLORE how all of Scripture points back to Jesus. Our team of volunteers works hard to highlight life-application so kids can begin to claim faith for themselves and make it their own. Throughout the morning, kids will experience Bible teaching, exciting large group worship, thought-provoking small group discussion, and hands-on application. Our goal is to give kids foundational instruction and training in Elementary school so they enter junior high as already passionate disciples of Jesus Christ.
Kids kindergarten-5th participate in GPS on Wednesday nights. GPS is a discipleship program in which kids The material we learn on Wednesday nights will be an extension of what kids learn in small groups on Sunday mornings! Our hope is that this deeper exploration results in our kids coming to a greater understanding of scripture and the story of Jesus! Check in begins at 6:30PM upstairs in our Kids Ministry Elementary space. Please make sure kids are accompanied by a parent or adult over the age of 18 during check-in!

Parents, this class is just for you! While your kids attend GPS Kids activities, we invite you to join us for our "Parenting GPS" class. This discussion based, small group experience, is open to parents of kids birth-18 yrs old. We will explore how to navigate parenting at each phase of development and how to make sure you are the primary disciple in your child's life! We will also take time each week to go over what kids are learning in their classrooms on Sunday mornings and some specific things you can do to carry over what they are learning at church to the home!
