Our Family Ministries, birth -12th grade, have the same mission: to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered Worship, Fellowship, Ministry, Evangelism and Education. Because we believe Scripture is clear that families are the primary disciple-makers in the lives of their children, our hope is to partner with families in their pursuit of this mission, coming alongside them in the discipleship process.
We do this in many ways, including various programs, events, & resources we provide. These opportunities help build a strong, gospel-centered foundation for families.

Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings our Children, Nursery through 4th grade come through the Kids' Barn to be check in & enter their classrooms. Connection Groups start at 9:00 am; all of our kids are taught the same age-appropriate lesson from The Gospel Project. The Gospel Project for Kids is a Christ-centered Bible study resource that looks at the big picture of God's story — the story of redemption through Jesus Christ. Each week, kids of all ages will follow a chronological timeline of Bible events, all the while learning how each story points to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
After Connection Groups our children have the option to either stay in the Kids' Wing or go into Worship with their families.
Nursery & Preschoolers remain in the same classrooms & are taught, in a different method & by different teachers,
the same lesson as the 9:00 am class.
Kindergarten through 4th grade who stay go into the Kids' World room with our Children's Director & other volunteer leaders. During Kids' World they come into the Worship Center to participate in Praise & Worship. They then return to Kids' World where they are taught the lesson of the day again using different activities that engage their minds & bodies.

Wednesday Night AWANA

Visit our AWANA  page to register or for more information.
AWANA meets on Wednesday nights, from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm during the school year. AWANA is a ministry that encourages children to memorize scripture & learn about the Bible through lessons, games, activities & homework. Every Wednesday the kids come into the Lobby & check-in either at the Kids' Barn, or the pre-check desk. The night starts, for Kindergarten through 4th grade, in the Worship Center with announcements, worship through music, & prayer. Once a month the kids have a Missions Night where they hear from one of the ministries that we partner with at FBC Forsyth.
AWANA is divided up into clubs based on age & grade, & sometimes gender. The smallest kids are Puggles. Cubbies are made up of kids in Preschool. Puggles & Cubbies stay in the Children's Wing all night, with the Cubbies in the Kids' World room. Sparks are made up of 1st & 2nd grade, while T&T, Truth & Training, is comprised of 3rd & 4th graders. We divide T&T up into boys & girls. Each night the kids have the opportunity to recite the verse they have memorized that week at home, hear the Bible taught & AWANA games in the Worship Center.  Once a semester, kids are able to redeem points that they have earned throughout the year to purchase prizes in the AWANA Store. AWANA is directed by our AWANA Commander.

Summers

Summers are a fun exciting time for our Children's Ministry! While AWANA takes a break on Wednesdays, we do lots of other fun activities. I years past we have done Summer Discipleship Adventures during the month of June. In Summer of 2020 we plan on bringing back VBS!
Our Children's Ministry Team does a great job of planning fun family activities & providing helpful resources for our families to disciple their kids during the Summer.
Follow this link to Pre-Register for VBS in a Box!
In addition to those fun activities, we also take our kids who have finished 3rd grade through 6th grade to CentriKid Camp. CentriKid is a blast! We go every year in July, for a week, to the campus of Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO, about 2 hours from Forsyth. There the kids worship & study the Bible throughout the day. They play games & make new friends & memories that will last a lifetime.
