At First Baptist, we are committed to following Jesus' example by welcoming children into our church family. During a child's infancy we covenant with parents to be partners with them in nurturing their child and in helping the child grow to know and love Jesus as friend, Savior, and Lord. Our varied programs for children are directed toward that end.

"People were bringing even infants to [Jesus] that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. But Jesus called for them and said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.'" Luke 18:15-16


Gimme Five!
As we welcome new babies, children, and their families to our church, our ministry to children is growing!  With all of this wonderful growth, our volunteer needs are growing as well.  From rocking newborn babies to playing with preschoolers, we need your help during the worship hour. So, gimme five!  Would you consider giving just five Sundays volunteering in Extended Session caring for our youngest children during worship?
- - Five Sundays of witnessing infants' wonder up close

- - Five Sundays of giggling while you play with toddlers
- - Five Sundays of helping children know God's great love for them

No matter your age or ability, there is a place for you to "Gimme Five."  We hope you will partner with our growing children's ministry.  We will provide any training and materials. To provide the safest and most secure environment possible, al  ministry partners must be approved through FBCs Policy for Volunteers with Minors and Vulnerable Adults.

I am delighted to be joining you at First Baptist Church! Ministering to children and their families is what I am passionate about and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so with you.staff-Ashley Gill Harrington

I felt called to ministry as a young teenager, and while in college I was given the opportunity to work in my home church. During that time, I saw in children’s ministry the intersection of my calling, my giftedness, and my passions. From there my call has continued to evolve, yet children and families have remained at the center. I love the energy and honesty that children bring to discovering faith, and I enjoy resourcing parents and caregivers with tools to bring the heart of faith development into their homes where they live each day.

During this time of interim, I hope to be a loving caregiver to help bridge the gap between the legacy of what was and the hope of what will be for the children and families of First Baptist Church. Though I know this is for a season, I look forward to the good days ahead as we work to welcome and nurture First Baptist’s youngest and treasured members.
