Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Dear Parents,

As First Baptist Church El Paso continues the step-by-step process of reopening and welcoming everyone back to Church, we have made some changes to our procedures. The FBC Children’s Ministry continues to take every precaution to maintain a safe environment for your families and for our teachers and helpers.

We are accepting babies through Kindergarten during both worship services. We are also having Children’s Sunday School classes immediately following the first service.

Sunday School time is 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Worship Service times are 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Children first grade and older attend worship with their parents.

Our specific Policies & Procedures for parents can be found on our website on the Children and Preschool Ministry pages.

Sunday Morning

We believe that even the youngest children can begin to understand the Truth of God's Word through loving care and teaching. To that end, we provide Bible teaching and application time for our youngest attenders and a variety of activities during the school year on Sunday evenings. Our energetic and loving volunteers present the Truth of God's Word in practical and fresh ways each week. Children in these classes are promoted based on their grade in school at the beginning of each new school year. The FBC Children’s Ministry is making every effort to provide a safe environment as we move to our next step of opening on Sunday mornings. The FBC Childcare Team, Building Services Team, Ministers and Staff are taking all precautions to maintain a safe environment for families and our teachers.
