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. We will continue to provide our Zoom Sunday School at 10:30 a.m. for 1st–3rd grade and 4th–5th grade. 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 Mornings

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. Preschool classes are grouped by age and promoted based on development and classroom space needs. Parents will always be notified by our Preschool Coordinator at least one week in advance before a child is promoted.

Sunday school

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. During the 9:00 and 11:15 worship, we will offer childcare for walkers through Kindergarten. We will also have childcare available through 5th grade during the Sunday School from 10:15 a.m.–11:15 a.m. We are so happy to see those families that are ready to be in our building, but for those families that are not ready, please continue to enjoy our virtual services and Bible studies. The Zoom Sunday school for 1st to 3rd will remain at 10:30 a.m. 4th and 5th grade will meet at 10:15. We will continue the mailing of material to preschool and children to enjoy with their families a time of Bible study or short devotion at home.

i praise you because i am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, i know full well.
