Children's Ministry


Ministry Overview


At FBC Springfield we love teaching and caring for the elementary school children entrusted to us.  In addition to teaching our children the truths about God, we believe God wants to work through our children now instead of them having to grow older before they begin serving others.  For this reason our Children's Ministry regularly connects across the generations of our church through service projects and activities that bless senior adults or the whole church.  

As with all programming for minors, all regular volunteers have been screened via a background check and have been trained regarding best practices for safety and security.  Our children's ministry director is Carol Stewart (Carol's Bio).


Sunday Mornings

9:15AM-10:15AM:  During this hour, the elementary children are divided into age-graded classes to learn biblical truths about God, Christ, and how they should live in light of the gospel.  We have a great team of committed teachers that invest each week in our younger ones during the Sunday morning Bible study hour.


10:30AM-11:30AM:  About 20 minutes into the worship service, our children Kindergarten-4th Grade can be dismissed for Children's Church for a fun, interactive, age-appropriate time of worship.  This allows our children to experience part of the corporate worship service while also learning truths about Christ on their own level.  About 6x/year Children's Church is intentionally cancelled so that children experience the entirety of corporate worship.  


Sunday Nights

(AWANA)

6:00PM-7:45PM:  On Sunday nights during the school year, our preschool children and elementary children can participate in our AWANA program.  AWANA teaches children to learn the truths about God and the Bible in a fun and rewarding environment.  See our AWANA page for more information or to register your children for this awesome program.


Wednesday Nights

6:45-8:00PM:  While parents are in Bible study, elementary children participate in children's choir and mission's learning experiences.  The children's choir time allows our children to enjoy practicing singing and drama as they prepare for the always entertaining winter and spring musicals.  The mission's learning experiences uses material from RA's and GA's and involves interactive activities, crafts, games, service projects, and so much more.  



Special Events

The children's ministry at FBC Springfield includes a free, yearly VBS ​​​​​​​(August 7-11, 2017) and older elementary children get an opportunity to go to Camp Crossroads.  Our children's ministry also hosts a massive Easter Egg Hunt that includes approx. 200 participants each year.  There is always something fun and exciting on the calendar of our children's ministry including pool days, slip and slide parties, game nights, and so much more.
