Welcome to Shine Kids Ministry!

At First Baptist Church of Madison, we value the joy and excitement of our little ones. We consider it a privilege to minister to your children on Sundays and Wednesdays, and we look forward to getting to know your family! Because we know that YOU are the primary spiritual influencers of your children, we want to PARTNER with you in pointing your children to Christ. If there is anything we can do to support or help you in your spiritual role as a parent, please let us know! We also invite you to subscribe to our monthly parent email by clicking here.
 
Safety is of the utmost importance to our children’s ministry team. We want to keep your kids in a safe environment where they can easily learn more about God and grow in their spiritual walk . In order for us to ensure that your child is picked up by the correct adult, please create a free family account at KidCheck.com. When you drop off your child in any of our ministry events, we will require you to log into our check-in computer or use the Kid Check app on your phone to print a child and guardian nametag. You can also view our Child and Youth Protection Policy.
 

Sunday School

Sunday School is on Sunday mornings @ 10:20 AM. Our volunteers lead their classrooms in age-appropriate and fun activities that get our kids excited about the Word of God! We use Lifeway’s Gospel Project curriculum for the following classes:

Kinder (Room 127)
Grade 1 (Room 129)
Grade 2 (Room 131)
Grade 3 (Room 133)
Grades 4 & 5  (Room 132)
 

Sunday Children’s Church

Children’s church happens every Sunday morning during the pastor’s sermon. Right before the pastor gives his message, children in preschool through 1st grade are invited to exit the sanctuary and follow our volunteers to attend a special service just for them! Attendance is optional, and parents are welcome to keep their children in the service if they would prefer to sit together.
 

Wednesday Night Ministry

On Wednesday nights starting at 6:00 PM, children Kinder-5th grade participate in our Shine Kids Ministry and Kids Choir Ministry. This time is led by an amazing team of volunteers, our Children’s Minister, and Minister of Music.
