Children's Ministry - "Destination Kids"

At First Baptist Church Springfield, we desire to bring children and their families closer to Christ!  We want to support and equip you as the parent for this path of life we are on.  We pray we do this is a variety of exciting, thoughtful, and interesting children’s activities – join us - you’ll be glad you did!!


Our focal verse is John 14:6 “Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”  In “Destination Kids,” our theme this year, we will look at

  • The Way – Which way is God’s way? What is the way to God? Which way should we go every day?
  • The Truth – What is Truth? The Bible is Truth! How do we hide the Truth in our heart?
  • The Life – How does God give us life? What do we need to live? How do we build relationships?

All our activities take place on the Children’s Hall, first floor, or in the gym.  We have a fantastic group of volunteers and staff to work with your children – join us!
