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.

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)


Our Nursery is divided into three rooms:

  • Infants
  • Walkers
  • Toddlers

The nursery is available during LIFE Groups and the 10:45 Worship Service.  A nursing room is available in the back of the sanctuary beside the foyer, in the middle room of the hallway as you enter the main building from the Children’s Building, and in the Children’s Building.


LIFE Groups are divided into four classes:

  • 4 yrs old – Kindergarten (must be potty trained)
  • 1st, 2nd and 3rd Grade
  • 4th and 5th Grade

LIFE Groups study through the Bible using Grow curriculum.  It is a three-year cycle that walks children through the Bible.

At FBC Springfield, we help your child connect to God through worship, Bible teaching, scripture memorization, and group discussions.  Children will go directly from LIFE Groups to Children’s Church.  After the Worship Service concludes, parents can return to the Children’s Building to pick up their children.

AWANA CLUBS | Sunday Evenings from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Awana is a time of worship, small group learning, and verse memorization.  The attendees are encouraged to learn scripture at home and then share the scripture in their small group time.  Every week they participate in game time so appropriate shoes are required.  Supper is served for Awana participants.  See the Awana ministries page here for additional information.
