Kids Ministry

To Equip, Engage and Encourage families to fulfill the Great Commission

Welcome to the children's ministry of First Baptist Jackson...a place to help the whole family learn more about God! 

Our goal is to equip parents and leaders to help children understand and know the importance of having a relationship with Jesus Christ for salvation, to engage lost families in the community with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ, and encourage families to live missionally in order to advance God’s Kingdom.

Sunday Morning at 9:00 am or 10:30 am on the 5th Floor

On Sunday mornings, children fill the hallways and rooms with excitement as we seek to understand God and His word on a deeper level. 

Each grade has a unique focus as we lead our children to become authentic disciples:

  • 1st grade – Discovering God’s Greatness
  • 2nd Grade – Treasuring the Bible
  • 3rd Grade – Serving the King
  • 4th Grade – Transforming the World

Our teaching focus is intentional and based on

Sunday Night for Kids

1st-4th graders are invited to join a bunch of their friends in the Kids Ministry on Sunday nights beginning at 6:00 pm for Club14.  This semester, we will be looking at how the Bible is all put together, how each story relates back to a relationship with Jesus.  Its lots of fun games, exciting learning, and food each evening!  It’s a time where you don’t want your kids to miss!
