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 !

How can I Register my child?

Option 1: Click Here For:  VBS 2019 Online Registration  

  • Choose the PARTICIPANT REGISTRATION Option on the left side of that page and complete the form.
  • If your child is a previous registrant (Summer 2018) the grade level will automatically be updated for 2019.
  • If you register just before you arrive that morning, your child’s information will not be available to their teacher and you will be asked to complete a paper registration form. 


Option 2: 
Paper registration – Please do not use this method unless you do not have access to a computer with internet

  1. Visit the Children’s Ministry table in the Mall on Sunday mornings to get a form to complete, or Return a completed form.
  2. Visit the Church Office – Mon-Thurs, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Pre-registration will save you time. On your child’s first day to attend VBS, you can bypass the registration table and go directly to the Check-In station for the grade level your child has just completed.

Although pre-registering is preferred, children may register the first day they attend VBS. Forms will be available to fill out the Registration Table the first day your child attends. Bring emergency information with you. Our registration form asks for contact phone numbers and health insurance information.  Arrive a few minutes early so your child doesn’t miss anything!
