Children's Ministry

"But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14 (ESV)

"And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:52 (ESV)

The Purpose Statement:

Our ministry exists to bring children into age appropriate WORSHIP where they can BELONG to the family of God, GROW in their relationship with Christ, learn to SERVE and then go SHARE Christ in the world! FIRST KIDS is the name of our Children’s Ministry at First Baptist Church, Porter and is led by Children’s Pastor, Maury Gill and volunteers whose passion is children and whose vision is to “Connect Kids to God and to Others”! Our goal is to provide a fun and interactive program tailored just for kids no matter what age and grade to help them know Jesus and grow spiritually as they build meaningful relationships with other children and adults!

What to Expect:

Our FIRST KIDS Children’s Ministry is designed with children in mind! Each child is taught in an age-appropriate environment. From Nursery to 5th Grade our desire is to see each child be cared for in an individual way. Each of our FIRST KIDS leaders has been through an extensive orientation process and has been screened to work with your child. From loving care in the nursery to LIFE KIDS, KIDS JAM Jr., KIDS JAM and DIG IN your child will be cared for and taught God’s Word in a safe, loving and encouraging environment.
