"We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders He has done…so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born and they will tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.”
At First Baptist Church in Hondo, TX, we value children and believe they are a gift from God. Our desire is for church to be a fun and safe place for them to learn about the one who loves them more than anything: God! And for them to learn that God has a plan and a purpose for them. We want them to know that they are here for a reason, and were created to be unique, special and valuable.
We communicate these values through the following programs:
Sunday Morning Bible Study at 10:10 AM
We share interactive Bible lessons focusing on stories, scripture memory and activities for children at Sunday Morning Bible Study, with rooms accommodating the following ages:
Nursery: Birth – 2 years old
Toddlers: 2 and 3 year olds
Preschool and Kindergarten: 4 and 5 year olds
1st - 3rd Graders
4th - 6th Graders
Care during the morning worship service is provided for the Nursery (ages birth – 2 years old); the Toddler’s room (ages 2 – 3 years old); and the Preschool and Kindergarten room (ages 4 – 5 years old)
A special Children’s Church is presented for children 1st-6th grade during the sermon of the Sunday Morning Worship service. If you have joined us for an entire morning on Sunday, your grade school child will need to be picked up after their Sunday Morning Bible Study and then they may sit with you in the worship service. We enjoy a time of multi-generational worship, and then kids are invited to attend the special children’s church while their parents stay to listen to a message by our Pastor suited for adults and teens. We are currently using “What’s in the Bible,” an interactive video and small group curriculum written by VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer, designed to teach kids the whole bible in a year.
10:10 AM to 11:10 AM
We have 2 wonderful opportunities for FBC kids to worship Jesus through music and drama this Christmas season.🎼🎭🌲
1) Light of the World Christmas concert on December 17 at 6 p.m.--kids will be singing 2-3 songs in this performance with the adult choir. Songs will be taught during Children's Church beginning August 21st.
2) It All Happened in the Country--a children's Christmas musical on December 10th at 11:20 a.m. for Kinder-6th graders. Practices will be Sundays from 5-6 p.m beginning October 1st.
We are excited to see how God will use our children to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas.♥️
