Let’s Make a Christmas Movie!
In light of the pandemic, the Kidz Christmas play cannot be executed as it has been in recent years. However, Jackie Burnette is determined to keep the spirit alive! Jackie had the idea to make a Kidz Christmas Movie in lieu of the play. If you would like to participate or volunteer, please contact her at Jackie@fbcbristol.org.
 
On Wednesday nights in October and November at 6:10 p.m. we are gathering on Zoom to prepare for our movie "In a Galilee Far Far Away."
 
Children of all ages are invited! E-mail Ben Ondrak at ben@fbcbristol.org for the Zoom link. 
Due to COVID-19, we are exercising safe practices! All children's in-person meetings are postponed until further notice and are instead online.
 
Sunday Bible Study, 9:45 am:

We have Bible Study opportunities for children of all ages. Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers meet on the first floor in the nursery and preschool classrooms. Elementary school children have Bible Study in the children's room on the second floor. Children "move up" to the next aged class as they are developmentally ready.

  • Babies and Toddlers sing songs and hear Bible Stories together in Room 102

  • Preschool and Kindergarten children hear a Bible Story as well as have time for crafts and games in Room 100.

  • Elementary School aged children focus on a different Bible story each month using a Multiple Intelligences approach to Bible Study. Each week in the month, they learn about the Bible story in a different way: arts, games, puppetry, drama, and more. They meet in Room 200.  

Sunday Services, 11 am: 

Every family is different and so is how they best worship. With that in mind we have multiple ways for your family to participate in worship. Children of all ages are always welcome to stay for the entirety of the worship service. 

  • For children who remain in the sanctuary, worship bulletins and activities are available at the back of the sanctuary to use during worship to help focus their attention. 

  • During the service we have a Children's Moment, which is for children of all ages, and is focused on the same topic as the day's sermon.

  • After the anthem all children wishing to participate in Children's Church, exit the sanctuary and go to the chapel. Since children learn best by doing, they lead the worship service themselves in Children's Church. 

  • The Church Nursery is also available to families of young children for all or part of the worship service. 


Wednesday Services, 5:30 pm:
  • While the adults have a time of prayer in the Fellowship Hall, children meet in the Church Library for their own Story and Prayer Time.

  • At 6 pm, children rejoin their families for dinner.

  • While the adults have Bible Study, children have Music and Missions

  • Nursery Care is provided for children who are not old enough for music time. 

 
All children's ministry volunteers are background checked in accordance with the church's Safe Sanctuary policy.
