Children’s Ministry

chilren logo vFINAL no BG 

Here at FBCP we are passionate about laying the foundation of a growing faith in God for our kids. We like to look at the way Jesus grew. Luke 2:52 says, “and Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”

Over the course of time we want each child to learn as Jesus did and to grow in Stature, Wisdom, Faith, and Friendship. While learning very important truths about life we also discover God’s great BIG story! We dive into the Bible and explore the true stories God has given us as examples of how to, or how not to live!

Each Sunday, these stories come to life through video, music, activities, and more. Here at FBCP we use a curriculum called THE GOSPEL PROJECT which follows a chronological timeline of Bible events – from Genesis to Revelation – over a course of three years. Our kids, from the youngest babies to sixth grade students connect biblical events to God’s ultimate plan of redemption through Christ. It’s the whole Bible like kids have never seen it before.

We believe partnership between church and family is essential! We want to partner with you to have the greatest influence on our kids for Jesus! Come check-out some of the things we offer for our Kids !
