Children and Families

Welcome to the FBC SSI Children and Family’s Ministry for families with children from birth through 5th grade!  We’re glad you are here.

We are committed to engaging in the life of your child and family.  In our ministry, children experience friendships, caring adults, and participate in active learning.  They engage in Bible stories to discover God’s love for all people.

Sunday Mornings:

We offer nursery for children up to PreK, beginning at 8:15am for the early worship service and lasting throughout the morning.  At 9:30am, children of all ages attend Sunday School with their age group.  During the 10:30am service, children of all ages worship with their families, or PreK and under have the option of staying in the nursery.  At the designated time, children in K-5th grade may join us for Children’s Church.

Wednesday Nights:

Families gather for dinner at 5pm.  At 5:40pm, children and preschoolers meet for choir and Bible Story.

Throughout the year, we gather for a variety of activities to promote community and spiritual development, such as:

  • Family Retreats
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Parent’s Night Out
  • Choir and Summer Camps
  • Vacation Bible School
  • Fall Festival
  • Christmas Caroling
