Where do my kids go on Sunday Mornings?
DURING BIBLE STUDIES:
Our Preschool and Children's Ministries are designed to provide a safe, secure, and loving place for your children while you enjoy your 9:15 a.m. Bible Study class. At the front desk or Ark Entrance of our Children's Building, a greeter can help you find the age-appropriate class for your child. Our teachers strive to teach preschoolers and children about Jesus while incorporating fun games and crafts into the lessons. Classes for infants through kindergarteners are located on the first floor, while classes for children in grades 1 - 5 are located on the second floor.
DURING WORSHIP SERVICES FOR PRESCHOOLERS (Birth - Kindergarten):
Every Sunday, we have loving church members who give of their time to stay with your child while you enjoy the Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. These Volunteers in Preschool (VIP) trade places with the Bible study teacher and remain with your child during the worship hour to play games and create crafts with them.
DURING WORSHIP SERVICES FOR CHILDREN (Grades 1-5):
After Bible study, school-age children are welcome to join us upstairs in Kids U for Kids Worship. We meet every Sunday EXCEPT for the last Sunday of every month. The children's worship service is very similar to the adult worship service but tailored to help kids learn about every aspect of true worship.
What are the worship services like?
We don't define our worship service by its musical or message styles as much as we do by the attitudes of our own hearts. When the service begins at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday, you'll notice a distinct, heart-warming focus on worshipping the one true God. Our musicians and choir lead the congregation with excellence in a beautifully-blended time of singing and praise, some of it more contemporary and some of it more traditional, but all of it sacred. Our messages don't use Scripture as a springboard into a topical speech, rather they begin, remain, and end with the truth of God's Word - the Bible.
At First Baptist Texarkana most people wear business-casual attire but we want you to feel comfortable and come as you are. God sees our heart, and that's waht He cares about; it's not about the style of clothing we choose.
When is the church open during the week?
Monday - Thursday 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Friday 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Can I meet a pastor?
Certainly! They are looking forward to it! At the conclusion of the service, after the invitation, our pastors are at the front of the stage and would love the opportunity to meet you and answer any questions you might have. If you are a first-time guest, we have a gift bag for you to take as you exit the East, West or Central Foyers with our thanks for joining us!
