In our First Baptist Kids' Ministry, we provide a safe environment for babies through 5th graders to learn Biblical truth in an age-appropriate and relevant way. Our prayer is that each child will come to know Jesus as their Lord and that families will be supported in living out their faith in the community. we offer opportunities every Sunday and Wednesday for your children to participate in Life Groups and Worship. Please see below for details about our programs for each age group.

PRESCHOOL (Babies – Age 5)
The PRESCHOOL department is for babies through age 5.

KIDS (Kindergarten – 5th Grade)
Our KIDS' department is for kindergartners through 5th graders.

Coming for a visit? Families with children will be shown to our check-in kioks, located on both the Kids and Preschool halls. You will be greeted at the kiosk by one of our First Baptist Garner Kids volunteers who will check-in your children and show you to their Life Group. Because we make safety a priority, we will ask you to provide basic information including your name, contact information, allergies, individual needs, child's name and birthdate.

During kids' activities, all children are checked-in electronically and given a nametag. Parents are given a corresponding security tag for pick-up. Upon arrival, a leader will make sure you receive the appropriate tag. When you return to pick up your child, go directly to your child's Life Group room and present your pick-up tag. Our leaders will match the pick-up tag with a corresponding number on your child's nametag. We ask that only the parent/guardian or immediate family members are present during drop off/pick up. This keeps hallway traffic to a minimum and promotes a safe transition for all families. If your child has an emergent need during your stay, you will receive a text or phone call via the emergency contact number that you provide at check-in. All of our preschool workers are screened, and background checked before they are permitted to serve with our First Baptist Garner Kids programs.
