Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
The Children's Ministry at First Baptist Church Elm Mott is a thriving ministry aimed at introducing the love of God to kids of all ages. On Wednesday nights at 6:30 children from Kindergarten to 6th grade meet for a time of singing, games, and bible study. Sunday mornings there is a nursery available for babies, a 3 & 4 year old class, Sunday School classes for 1st-6th graders, and Kids Church for preschool - 2nd grade during part of the service (children are released to Kids Church after the Children's Sermon).
During the summer, our schedule changes. We take a break from our regular Wednesday activities. Instead we have several Terrific Tuesdays for grades K-6 from 7:30 am - 2:00 pm. We feed the kids breakfast and lunch, have fun with them, and share about Jesus. Each week has a different theme or activity from flying kites to going to the zoo, and there's no charge to parents! We also have Summer Camp and Vacation Bible School.
Children's Ministry allows the opportunity to introduce children to the Great Creator, the one who made the world! We hear about Jesus, sometimes for the first time, and learn about God's great love for us. We learn how to love others and about forgiveness.
We have times of prayer and times of praise. Not only do we begin to understand that we are to pray and praise at all times, but also that God hears our prayers and praise always!
In the Children's Ministry, the kids hold Bibles in their hands and learn how to read scripture. They will find out how children are a big part of God's plans.
New friends are made every week as we celebrate together God's love for everyone. The Children's Ministry is a place where fun games, great praise, and loving God all come together.
