SUNDAY

9:40 am - 10:40 am | Grade 1 - 5

Children are a gift of the Lord! Jesus himself cherished children and blessed them, saying in Matthew 19:14, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." We believe that God has given parents the primary responsibility and privilege of bringing up children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Eph. 6:4; Deut. 6:4-9). It is the desire of our Children's Ministry to partner with each parent to effectively teach children about Christ's love and move them toward a personal relationship with Jesus.

Sunday School is a valuable tool we use to lay the foundation of the word of God for our children. We believe a safe and fun, creative environment will enhance the learning of God's word. We look forward to sharing with you and your child a ministry that is Christ-centered and child-focused . Join us for Sunday School each Sunday from 9:40 to 10:40.

*PARENTS -Children in grades 1st -5th grade will be dismissed from the church service at a designated time in the service. With the help of our many volunteers, the children are lead to room 227B, where they will experience Children’s Worship that provides a media-driven, interactive worship experience. It includes worship songs, music videos, Scripture memory verses, weekly missions emphasis, drama scripts, and more!

Security and Check-in

At First Baptist Church Newnan, nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of your children.  That’s why we’ve chosen Checkpoint as our children’s check-in solution to bring you the best check-in experience and to allow us to partner with you to keep your children safe.  We also want our visitors to feel welcome and that their children are safe with across the board security measures.

Wednesday

Music

We have seven children’s choirs that meet each Wednesday evening from 5:30-6:15pm following our church-wide supper at 4:45 pm.  Our choirs have two major presentations each year.  One at Christmas and one right before school is out.  Each choir also has the opportunity to lead in our Worship services during the year.  We have at least two adults and youth workers in each of our choirs that gear each rehearsal with hands on activities, musical learning and sharing, and gained biblical knowledge through the memorization of scripture songs.

Good News (4th & 5th Grade)-Attend Young Musicians festival each February and are also eligible to attend the prestigious Young Musicians Camp each summer. Scholarships are awarded to any student who wants to attend and who have excellent attendance in weekly rehearsals. This choir will also present a major musical/drama each spring as well as leading in worship services.

Missions

Mission Friends is the mission organization for preschool children who are 3, 4, and 5 years of age. Mission Friends meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 to 7:00. The preschool children become aware of God's love and learn that others need to hear about this good news! They are involved in learning, praying, giving and doing missions. They learn simple Bible verses and engage in fun and creative activities about missionaries throughout the world. The preschool children are frequently involved in hearing real missionaries and participating in mission projects such as collecting supplies for Christmas shoe-boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Come join us for unforgettable opportunities on Wednesday evenings!
