the children's ministries of First Baptist Sumrall


Kids@First Children's Ministry

A child is a wonderful gift from God. At FBC Sumrall, we have a variety of children's ministries to meet the needs of children and their families. Our mission and purpose is to magnify Christ in all that we do and to present the gospel in a way that our children will understand. 


Sunday Morning Bible Study

Sunday mornings begin at 8:45 AM with Bible study specifically geared for each age group in our children's ministries from toddlers, preschoolers, & kindergarteners who use the Orange's First Look curriculum (download the Parent Cue by clicking here) & elementary using LifeWay's Bible Studies for Life Kids curriculum (download this app by clicking here), all the way to preteens who study LifeWay's FLYTE curriculum dealing with the current issues of their age. You can see more of FLYTE on YouTube by clicking here.

Wednesday Evenings

Wednesday evenings begin with a meal at 5:15 PM (first time free, then nominal cost). Following our meal, kids begin KidsChoirs at 6:15 PM upstairs. At 6:45 PM, kids will then rotate through games/recreation, science/crafts, or Bible/missions study in our newest curriculum, SKY: Everything is Possible with God. Our closing rally begins at 7:15 PM in the new large group room, & parent pickup begins at 7:30 PM.

Safety & Security

All teachers are required to submit to a background check. In addition, all teacher helpers must attend training. While we hope that kids have a tremendously fun time while on our campus, we take the safety & security of our children seriously.
