Children are a valuable part of our ministry here at First Baptist Edmonton. We have several places for children to get involved and be cared for. Children go to various programs after children’s time during the service. Children ages (6-12) come downstairs to hear stories from God’s word that follow our lectionary, through drama, puppets, skits or story tellers in a large group setting. They have opportunities to participate in small group activities based on their interest where they can discuss what they think with people in their faith community here at First Baptist Church.
Our babies are cared lovingly for by Ruby who is in our nursery faithfully each week to provide a secure and consistent person the children can trust. Our preschoolers follow a curriculum taught by loving and caring teachers in their classrooms.
Grade 5/6’ers meet monthly for an activity and social gathering. This is an opportunity for fun and friendship-building.
Our worship services include our children in many ways. Whether participating in the liturgical experience, sharing during the time with the children or offering their gifts, music and talents, our children are valued members in the worship ethos of FBC.
FBC has adopted the KidCheck electronic child and volunteer management system for our children’s programs. If you have not already registered with KidCheck, please do so on the KidCheck website.
Check in is available in the Church foyer.
If you already have a KidCheck parent account with another KidCheck child care provider, you may also use it at First Baptist Church Edmonton.
