First Baptist Church of
Bordentown, New Jersey
All Children are a vital part of the ministries here at First Baptist. Jesus said, “let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10:14) Our ministries to children include:
Our Sunday School begins each Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. with a gathering of all classes during our opening exercises which consists of contemporary Christian songs. At 9:15 a.m. and led by passionate teachers, our Children’s Sunday School is available for all ages. Lessons and stories come straight from the Bible and children leave with take-home reminders of the lesson for the day.
Our recently renovated Toddler Room, now called the KidZone, is open during all ministries of the church. Filled with several climbing structures and many other interactive children’s toys and crafts, the KidZone is supervised by adults on Sunday mornings. All our adult chaperones have been qualified with completed background checks through “Protect My Ministry.”
From time to time, our children are invited to be engaged in music led by the church’s music directors. Drums, tambourines, xylophones, bells, and other instruments are available for our children to play.
Held each summer, our Vacation Bible School centers around a theme from the Bible. Taking place over a period of five evenings; children engage in song, crafts, games, snacks, and a Bible lesson based on the theme for the week.
Held each year just before Easter. Our Community Easter Egg Hunt allows children to engage in the fun of finding Easter eggs filled with prizes. Lunch is always included as part of the fellowship.
Our priority at First Baptist is that each child develops a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Classes, which prayerfully lead to a life-changing decision, are available for our children. Baptism by immersion is practiced at First Baptist.
As stated above, we value each of our children. As a matter of church policy, each of our volunteers and staff are required to have comprehensive identity and criminal background checks performed by “Protect My Ministry.”
