Welcome to FBCL’s children’s department! If you have a child in grades 1 - 5, we have a place for them! Our children’s department is committed to passionately pursing our Lord and seeing its children come to love and follow Jesus.
It’s here that children will learn about God and how to take that information and apply it to life, right where they are at. If there are siblings (preschool or teens ), a mom, dad, grandparent – we have a place for you as well, where you can plug into a small group to be encouraged as you grow and live out this walk of faith!
The most important spiritual influence in your child's life is YOU. Imagine the impact, if what they are catching at home is being reinforced in the studies, activities, friends and events they participate in at church. Here are a few of the opportunities your student has throughout the year:
SUNDAY MORNING We offer Sunday School during the 9:30 AM hour, and children’s worship meets at 11:00 AM. If you worship together as a family, we would still love to have your student once you move onto your Small Group Sunday School class.
SUNDAY EVENING During the school year, we have Children’s Choir that meets at 6:00 PM. During the summer months, we offer a discipleship class for our students, also at 6:00 PM.
AWANA (WEDNESDAY EVENINGS: SCHOOL YEAR) AWANA club stands for Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed, taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 of the Bible. This program works with parents and churches to develop spiritually strong children who faithfully follow Jesus. AWANA teaches children the Bible and involves playing games, receiving rewards, memorizing Scripture, completing a workbook – all in an enthusiastic environment that simply, stated, is FUN. Clubs meet weekly at 6:45 PM – 8:15 PM, during the months of September – May, and are grouped by ages. Cubbies is for preschoolers (ages 3-5), Sparks is for grades K through 2nd and T & T (Truth & Training) clubs are for grades 3rd through 6th. Click here for our AWANA calendar.
SPORTS CAMP (WEDNESDAY EVENINGS: SUMMER) During the Summer our children who have completed 1st - 6th Grade enjoy Sports Camp from 6:45 PM – 8:00 PM. It lets kids do what they love like run and jump, but helps them to see how being athletic and disciplined can make a difference in their lives both physically and spiritually. Register
VBS Vacation Bible School is not flannel boards and one teacher reading to the group! Instead, it is a fun, fast-paced time that can be life-changing for your child. The theme may vary, but our focus on the Lord remains the same, being reinforced through Bible teaching, scriptural songs, missions, crafts and games. Our teams prepare to receive your children wherever they are, with the goal of taking them further. That may look like introducing the gospel and God’s love to some, or giving resources to help them share their faith for others. Anyway you look at it – there is growth, friendship and foundation being built into their lives, as they learn to apply biblical truth to their life. This is for children who have completed Kindergarten through 6th grade, for one week during the summer months. Hours are 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM. Register now!
TRUNK & TREAT A safe and fun alternative for families that has become tradition around here, each October 31st, from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM. Folks show up, sometimes in costume, sometimes with their vehicles decked out, parked in our lot ready to distribute candy! This is a fun way to engage with our community, share some laughter and smiles. There is plenty of candy, face painting, & door prizes – all in a non-threatening environment for not only FBCL kids, but also for their friends and others in the community.
