FBC Springfield Children’s Ministry exists to help children know Jesus Christ, to help them begin a personal relationship with God, and to make Jesus known to others. We have a scriptural admonition to care for and instruct children in the ways of the Lord. “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
THE NURSERY MINISTRY ON SUNDAY MORNINGS
(Birth to 2 years)
The Nursery/Toddler Ministries of FBC Springfield exist to provide a place to minister to the very specialized needs of the youngest children in our congregation.
The Nursery Ministry provides care for children, birth to 3 years old during the Sunday School hour and Worship Service hour.
The Nursery consists of two rooms:
- Nursery Room – for infants and crawlers
- Toddler Room – for walkers
- A nursing room is available in the children’s building as well as in the back of the sanctuary beside the foyer.
THE SUNDAY SCHOOL MINISTRY
(3 years – 5th Grade)
At FBC Springfield Kids we strive to teach the kids who God is, who they are, and what their responsibility is. We do this on Sunday Mornings during Sunday School, and Children’s Church using The Gospel Project curriculum.
During a child’s time in our children’s ministry, they have the opportunity to systematically walk through the Bible 3 complete times.
The Sunday School program at FBC Springfield consists of four different classrooms:
3 yrs old – Kindergarten: These preschoolers will first learn the stories of scripture on their level.
1st and 2nd Grade: These elementary students will focus on how those stories of scripture connect to Christ. 3rd Grade: These elementary students will focus on how those stories of scripture connect to Christ.
4th and 5th Grade: These older elementary students are introduced to the essential doctrines of our faith as they walk through the Bible a third time.
THE CHILDREN’S CHURCH MINISTRY ON SUNDAY MORNINGS
(3 years – Kindergarten)
At FBC Springfield Kids we looking forward to helping your child connect to God through worship, Bible teaching, scripture memorization, and group discussions.
Children’s church is provided for your child from ages 3 through Kindergarten. After the music portion of the Worship Service, the children will be dismissed for Children’s church. A volunteer will be standing at the double doors to the right and will help usher you and your child to the Children’s Church room. (First room on the right upon entering the fellowship hall)
