Children (Birth to 5th Grade)
Every Sunday in the Family Life Center


Young children(birth to age 5) are taken to the classes by parents in the nursery and toddler rooms. There are FBC teachers and FBC volunteers who care for your children so you may attend worship. Kindergarten to 5th Grade students remain in the Sanctuary for worship service until they are dismissed to Children's Church for Bible lessons, songs, snacks, and games. Cindy Zull is our children's church leader along with other FBC volunteers.
