Find them, Reach them, Teach them, Grow them


Children are incredibly important at First Baptist Church! We really do see them as a blessing from God and as the future of our church. So, we are consciously working to disciple and bring them up in the Lord Jesus. This happens in many ways.
AWANA is probably our most important children's ministry. AWANA meets on Wednesday nights at 6pm during the school year. This ministry is aimed at seeing the children saved and growing in their knowledge and obedience to the Bible. The kids also have a ton of fun!
Vacation Bible School (VBS) is another important element of our children's ministry. This is normally a week-long activity during June. Nearly the whole church rallies together to create a fun and life-changing time for the kids of Norphlet and the surrounding area. It's not something to be missed!
Since God has blessed us with a Family Life Center with a top-quality gym, we have tried to use this facility to further His kingdom. This has taken several forms, but one is sports ministry with children. We hold a basketball camp in the FLC each summer, led by a team from Sports Crusaders. In addition, in the Winter of 2013, we started a Christian youth basketball league to reach kids and their families. These have both been fun and effective ways to reach out.
