Children at FBCD are important to us! As we partner with parents to spiritually grow the next generation, we strive to help children understand the best relationship they will ever encounter, will be a friendship with Jesus Christ. With that in mind, we want to offer opportunities in a safe and secure environment to encourage children and help them grow to love Jesus more each day. Some of the programs we offer our young families with children are:
FBCD KIDS SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday mornings are a time for kids explore God’s love and to learn what it means to have a relationship with Jesus. It all begins in Sunday School at 9:30. Teachers are prepared and ready to explore God’s word with children through discipleship, games, crafts, and video. This time of spiritual growth continues with . . .
KIDS Theatre – Children in kindergarten-5th grade go from Sunday School to adult worship with their parents so that they can experience a family worship time together. Kids are dismissed after the offering to go to their own worship – kids style! Children are given the freedom to express their praise through music, Bible study, games, and video. Kids Theatre runs from August through June. Children worship with their families during the month of July.
Half Time – Half way through the week (Wednesday) children get a “pick me up” to encourage and strengthen their walk with Christ. Half Time offers children the opportunity to be involved in a class of their choosing. These fun classes, which involve gym time, craft time, mission time and more, give kids in grades 1-5, the chance to select a class that fits their interest. Several classes are offered, with each child being a part of three different classes that each last 5 weeks. All classes are Bible based.
Vacation Bible School
June 1st – 5th; Save the date and get ready for God’s direction in this journey that is unknown to us, BUT known by Him! We will Journey Off the Map to uncharted territory where kids will begin to understand that obedience to God can lead them beyond the expected!
Summer Camp is a fun, exciting week for all 3rd through 5th graders at FBD! We participate in Lifeway’s CentriKid Camp each summer in July. This year, we will be attending Anderson University in Anderson, SC from July 14th-18th. This camp is led by seminary and college students and is an opportunity for kids to grow in their faith and develop and nurture new friendship!
C2C (Connecting 2 Christ) is a class designed to help children fully understand the meaning of salvation. Children who are beginning to ask questions concerning a relationship with Christ are encouraged to be a part of this three hour class. It is the desire of the Children’s Ministry at FBD to help children have a clear understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow Christ. This class is a prerequisite to a child’s baptism and is taught on an “as needed basis”.
