Hello! My name is Lori Brown, and I am the Family and University Pastor at First Baptist.I am excited about the opportunity to invest in the lives of all of our children and their families. It is my hope that our families will find a home at First Baptist where they can use their God-given gifts to serve Him and to serve our community.
Our aim is to help children develop a positive, receptive attitude toward God, the Bible, and church through stories, games, crafts, and music.
Preschoolers will experience Sunday school in a fun meaningful way through The Gospel Project preschool Sunday school curriculum. Sunday School begins at 9:00 and the preschool classes are all located on the first floor of the education building.
The elementary teachers are dedicated to presenting God's plan of salvation through Christ by helping children develop skills in prayer and Bible reading, encouraging children to worship, and developing a missional and service-focused mindset.
Elementary students also use The Gospel Project curriculum. As they spend time in both the Old and New Testaments, they will see the big story of scripture with Jesus at the center. Sunday morning class is at 9:00 and all 1st - 5th grade meet on the 3rd floor of the Education Building.
