Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."
Welcome to Fellowship Kids! Our passion is to partner with you as a parent as YOU lead your child to know God, love God, and serve God. We provide a safe, healthy, and biblically-centered environment for children while parents worship, learn, and serve during our weekend services.
Weekend Opportunities for Kids
NURSERY (ages 0-2)
PRESCHOOL (ages 2-5)
It is never too early to show God’s love to children. Our staff will welcome your children into an environment of loving care, safety, security, and stimulation, allowing you as parents to worship and serve in the body of Fellowship without worry.
In our preschool ministry, your child will discover the Bible through weekly Bible lessons and crafts. Our Fellowship Kids worship and puppet team reinforce the weekly Bible story in a fun and creative way.
Nursery is available during the Saturday evening and Sunday 10:45 AM worship services in the Nursery Wing across the courtyard from the Main Auditorium.
Available during the Saturday evening and Sunday 10:45 AM worship services in the Preschool Wing across the courtyard from the Main Auditorium.
Our Fellowship Kids elementary school program offers kids time to connect with others their age, worship with modern songs and drama, and study God’s word. Our elementary program begins each service with a time of group worship, led by the Fellowship Kids worship team, and then breaks into their age groups by grade for a time of teaching.
JOY is the "disability ministry" of Fellowship Bible Church. While the word "disability" is used, we prefer to think of JOY as a ministry of "possibilities" not defined by what can’t be done but rather by what all individuals regardless of ability level can achieve in God’s family. Our ultimate goal is to help our church culture be one that includes and accepts all members, and treats each other with the respect and love that Jesus expects of us.
Available for during Saturday evening (through 4th grade) and Sunday 10:45 AM worship services. In the lower level classrooms off the main stairwell.
We have Buddies that accompany children who are able to respond to inclusion in our youth programs from preschool through elementary, during the 10:45 AM services only, as well as a self-contained classroom to minister to other needs.
Preschool through 5th grades use Discipleland™ curriculum for their learning center classes. Children are taught God’s Word through Bible stories, engaging visuals, using their Bibles in class, drama, and personal testimonies of teachers to build disciples of Jesus Christ.
Meet the team.
