Children's ministries

Here at FBCV, we're committed to providing safe, fun, and exciting opportunities for children and parents to know Jesus.  We have weekly ministries on Sundays and Wednesdays, along with additional events and programs designed especially with your children in mind.  From birth all the way up through fifth grade, your child will find a place to learn, play, and grow in our children's ministry alongside experienced and responsible volunteers and teachers.  Come and join in on the fun!

Sunday morning

Staring at 9:15am on Sunday morning, we have Sunday school classes available for children of all ages, from birth through fifth grade.  Our nursery facilities, where our babies through preschool age children go to learn and play, are secure, monitored, and staffed with a high-ratio of background checked workers to children so that you can be assured your child is being cared for in the safest environment possible.  They'll enjoy crafts, snacks, a Bible story, songs, and plenty of play time with friends during Sunday school.

For grades K-5, there are grade level Sunday school classes where your child can study the Bible, play content-related games, and learn more about Jesus alongside prepared and caring teachers.  Your child will get to experience learning life applicable truths from Scripture while also building friendships with children their age in Sunday school. 

Wednesday night

On Wednesday nights, your child has the opportunity to dive deeper into Scripture and serving Jesus!  The fun begins with dinner at 6:00pm, then moves over to the gym where Bible study, crafts, games, and recreation are team taught by enthusiastic volunteers who will get your kids excited about knowing God and serving Him.  Wednesday nights also give your child "hands on" experience in missions with projects like Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and also packing backpacks for children in need. 

summer programs

During the summer, your child can be part of many fun summer programs all geared towards growing them in their faith in Christ.  The summer begins with Vacation Bible School at FBCV, which includes Bible stories, recreation, crafts, and music.  You definitely don't want to miss it!  In July, older children have the opportunity to go to Centri-Kid camp, where they'll spend a week away alongside FBCV sponsors, learning about Jesus and having fun in a camp environment.  SMACK, FBCV's summer musical, is another summer opportunity for children to grow in their faith and learn as they work together to put on a musical theater performance here in Vidalia.  We hope your child will join us and make this a summer to remember!

And so much more!

The children's ministry at FBCV is always coming up with new, fun ways to teach children more about how to know Jesus better!
