Welcome children & families

Welcome, we are so glad you are interested in exploring our ministry with children and families.  Whether you are new to town and looking for a church home or just curious about what we do, we have tried to anticipate your questions.  After exploring the questions and answers section at the bottom of this page, if you still have questions, please contact Kristen Koger.




We will start back with FBU Kids on April 11th at 6:30 and meet weekly until May 23rd. Children who are PreK and up will join us for Godly Play in the children's wing. This term, we will hear the parables and the stories of the early church. We will also hear some "liturgical" stories about the church year, baptism, and communion.

Children who are PreK-5th grade will participate in this program. Younger children (infants-3 year olds) will be in nursery care with two of our paid nursery workers. Contact Kristen Koger if you have any questions.

When you add children to the search, it can be downright difficult to know which place is right for you, especially since there are so many wonderful churches in the Decatur area. We've tried to anticipate your questions in order to help you discover if First Baptist Church of Decatur might be the place for you and your family.
