  • Sunday School

    We believe children can learn and experience God's love at all stages of their life. That's why we offer Sunday School classes for infants on up to 12th grade.  We have many dedicated Sunday School teachers who have a heart for children. It is our goal to teach your child God's Word, apply it to their lives, encourage them to look up and memorize scripture, and connect with other people of the church of all ages.

  • Pray & Play
    Pray & Play is our monthly program for children age 1 - 4 years old.  We play in the gym or on the playground, have crafts, snacks, and a Bible story.  Parents must stay.  Pray & Play is usually the second Saturday of the month from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. 

  • Children in Worship
    We want children in worship! From infant on up, children are welcome in our worship services. Children learn to worship by watching their parents and grandparents. We understand that children may fidget and make noise from time to time. We know adults that do that too! We have a children's sermon at each service except on Communion Sunday.  Worship activity books are available at each service.

  • Children's Worship Festival
    The Children’s Worship Festival is a service entirely geared towards children. The date for CWF is September 17th at 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary.  Dress comfortably and bring a friend! Children are invited to sit on the floor in the front of the sanctuary. This year's theme is REFUEL.  We will be teaching the children how important it is to stay plugged in to God.

  • Baptism

    Through baptism we are initiated into the Body of Christ. Our primary means of baptism is through sprinkling; however, we both recognize and offer any form of baptism a parent desires for their child.  If you are interested in having your child baptized, contact Pastor Rick at rick@fmcbryan.org.
