1ST KIDS ministry


The Bible teaches that parents are the primary disciple-makers in the home. This means that you have a big job that impacts eternity for your kids! Most parents will eagerly agree with us on this reality, but so many struggle with the practical side of parenting. FBCM and 1st Kids Ministry leaders understand the pressure that parents are under in today's culture and want to partner with parents on both the what and the how of gospel-centered parenting. Parents have a big job. We are here for you, and your kids too. Let's raise up disciples of Jesus TOGETHER!
