Explore the ministry opportunities for your children at First Baptist Bolivar

Kids Ministry at First Baptist Bolivar

We partner with parents to help kids fall in love with Jesus. Our goal is to show your children God's love, teach them about God and His Son Jesus through the Bible and support parents in training up their children.

We believe that two combined influences are better than just two influences. Parents are the primary spiritual influence in a child's life. But when the church and parents work together we have a greater opportunity to teach kids to love God with all their hearts and live like Jesus everyday.

*Upon arrival, please allow one of our friendly hospitality members to assist you with our check-in kiosks for all kids areas to secure your child’s check in.

Here's what to expect when visiting Kids@FBC for the first time:

First, One of our volunteers will be at our check-in kiosks. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, you will be contacted through the phone/email you gave at check-in. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
