Jr. Church @ FBC

At FBC, we want to see your child grow into godly young people who truly live for the Lord.  We want your child to know and love our amazing Savior!  Our children's ministries are not child care while parents worship the Lord upstairs. Instead, they are a discipleship program where teachers get to know and love your child.  They are purposeful, weekly opportunities for the Holy Spirit to reach the heart of your child.  They are the start of lessons and discussions about the Gospel message that you, as parents and guardians, continue to build on and reinforce throughout the week.


FBC's Jr. Church program is an exciting place to be!  All children in pre-k to grade 6 are welcome to join us downstairs following a time of worship with music in the sanctuary with their parents.  It takes place from 11:00 am - 12 noon.

 

Jr. Church begins with a large group time where students come together for a fun, yet simple, whole group lesson.  This year our lessons are winter-sports themed and focus on what it looks like to play well on God's team.  After that, students are dismissed to grade-appropriate classes where they study God's word in more depth, build relationships with one another, pray together, and participate in games and crafts.  Our current curriculum is The Gospel Project: a three-year study of Christ's work throughout the Bible.

 

The mission of our program is to lead children to Christ and guide them into a life-long, dynamic relationship with Him.

 

The safety of children is a top priority at FBC.  All members of our children’s staff have been subject to background clearances and are regular, consistent attenders at Fellowship Bible Church.  Every teacher in the children’s ministry has been subject to background clearances and is a member of the church.


We have a Facebook site with updates and ideas for parents and caregivers.  If you'd like access to the site, email Kristy Bentzley at KristineRF@comcast.net or contact the church office.
