How can I get involved as a parent?

One of the best ways to get involved as a parent is to volunteer with us on Sunday or Wednesday. We have several different opportunities including Life Bible Study teachers, Guest Central volunteers, and High 5, Breakout, and Friction volunteers. Visit our Volunteer Opportunities page for more details. For more information on getting plugged in, please contact Bill Emeott.

How can I get my son/daughter more involved in church?

Our strategy at First Kids is to provide relationship driven; Jesus centered programming every time we have your kids. Relationships (both with other kids and loving adults) are best fostered when kids are present. Make it a priority to bring your kids to church and ask how YOU can get involved by serving alongside your child.

What is the process for getting my child baptized?

Becoming a Christian is the most important decision anyone will ever make. At HFBC we believe that baptism is an expression of something that has already taken place, salvation. Therefore, we take our privilege of joining kids on their spiritual journey very serious.
Before baptism First Kids will set up times to meet with your child and at least one parent. During these meetings, a staff member will lead a discussion to discern where the child is on her/his spiritual journey. The child will receive a workbook to complete at home. Once the child completes the workbook and readiness for believer’s baptism is confirmed our team will forward the request to our Minister of Assimilation who will work with families to schedule the baptism. If there are any questions or concerns about the child’s readiness, a follow up meeting will be scheduled. For more information or to set up an initial appointment contact Bill Emeott.
