Christian Education at First Baptist is organized by the Christian Education Committee and the Sunday School Superintendent; both report to The Church Board. Joyce Whittaker is the Director of Christian Education


Please note...for the months of July and August, Sunday school classes for children and adults have been suspended; however, “Junior Church” is still available for all children from 4 years old through fourth grade.  Children are dismissed for Junior Church from the Worship Service immediately following the Children Story.  It concludes at the same time as the Worship Service.  Also, as a reminder, just for the summer, “Junior Church” is meeting downstairs in the Social Hall rather than in the usual classroom on the 2nd floor.

The Christian Education Committee oversees the Sunday School program, Rally Day, Camping and Conferences, and Post-Secondary Scholarships as well as many other on-going activites through-out the year.   

During the regular school year, Sunday School classes are available for all ages on Sunday mornings ... we have two adult classes, a junior/senior high school student class, and two separate classes for elementary-aged students.  All classes are taught by FBC volunteers who love the Lord and love teaching!  The Sunday school hour is from 10:00 to 10:45 AM followed by the morning worship service.  Active participation in a Sunday School class is encouraged as a perfect way for all God's children - no matter what age - to grasp a better understanding of the Scriptures and then be better able to apply the Word of God to daily life.    

A play-friendly nursery for babies, toddlers and little ones up to three years old is available during both the morning worship service and the Sunday School hour.  

Also for children ... on Sunday mornings, "Junior Church" meets for approximately forty-five minutes.  Children ages four through third grade are dismissed from the Worship service in the sanctuary following the "Children's Story Moment" with the Pastor.  Junior church is a special time for younger ones to learn about the Bible through stories, games, crafts and songs.  A light snack is provided.  It concludes at the same time as the Worship Service.
