CHRIST FIRST KIDS - Christ First Baptist Church loves kids!!!
This is a place where children are valued, loved and discipled as they journey to maturity in Christ. Children are nurtured into a personal relationship with Christ and encouraged to begin changing their world for Christ (no matter what age)!
Loving nursery care is available for infants 6 weeks to 30 months. Our nursery is qualified and caring adults that have experience with infants and their needs. The facility is equipped with a pager system so that you can be accessed anywhere on our campus if your little one has a need.
Preschool Programs are offered throughout the morning from 9am to Noon for children 2½ through Kindergarten. Your preschooler will learn that they are loved by God and to love others through Bible Stories, singing and play.
Elementary students meet at 10 am in Room 204 for a time of singing and age appropriate classes. They should be picked up after the first hour programs for fellowship with the church family. Families that come to our second service bring their children for the first portion of the worship service. Children are excused to a special Children's worship service in Room 202. This is where parents can sign out their kids at the end of the morning.
TeamKID meets from 7:00-8:30pm in CE 204 for 4 yrs-5th grade. Cost is $40 for the year which includes a T-shirt and workbook. This is an interactive “club” program that includes games, Bible lessons, activities and snacks. Children will learn how to be better disciples of Jesus.
Throughout the year Christ First Kids gets together for special events, camping and Vacation Bible School. We look forward to connecting with your kids, so come check us out in the CE building.
CHAOS – Middle School Ministry
“Christ Has All Our Solutions”-6th-8th grade
CHAOS meets on Sundays at 10 am with the High School students to sing, worship, and then break off for in-depth bible study. Wednesday Nights start at 7pm where we meet for fellowship, crazy games, a lesson, and finally meet in small groups led by our incredible small group leaders. Our ultimate goal is to ensure a safe and comfortable place where Middle School students are simply allowed to be themselves. Through the love of Christ working through every leader, it is our prayer that every student will walk away different than when they walked in. We also have various events and guys/girls nights that happen throughout the year. Student Impact is for those students who truly want to impact not only our church, but our community through service and worship. We meet the first Sunday of the month. Come check us out in the CHAOS room in the upstairs CE Building room 207.

CFHS – High School Ministry
These years are exciting, challenging, fun and many times difficult. We want HS students to begin a new relationship with Christ or grow in their existing relationship with Him. We call it R2 or Relationship squared…that every relationship would grow in maturity and depth, first with Christ and then with others (parents, caring leaders, pastors, friends, siblings and the world). CFHS meets 3 times during the week; Wednesday nights for our large group time at 7pm in CE room 209, Sunday mornings for worship and study at 10 am, and during the week we have our @ groups that are smaller and offer accountability. Throughout the year we have other opportunities to go to camps, retreats, all-nighters, service projects, mission trips to spend time with each other and grow together.
