Parents' Night Out

It's the Final PNO for 2014

Hey First Kids -- It's time for another great night of fun with your friends at First Baptist.

Friday from 5:30 to 8:00 pm we will have childcare for our infants and toddlers, riding toys and games in the Family Life Center for our preschoolers and a field trip to Jump-N-Jax for our kindergarten through fourth grade students. Snacks will be provided for everyone.

If you would like to join us, have your parents register you on the breezeway bulletin board by Wednesday night. Or they can email Sharon.

It's going to be a great night for kids and their parents! Hope you can join us.

Operation Christmas Child

First Baptist's Annual Family Ministry Event is Sunday, November 9th.

You and your child/children are invited to participate in Operation Christmas Child through First Baptist Children’s Ministry. This is an opportunity for you to share with your child/children the importance of missions through sharing with children around the world.

We see this as a two-step partnership ministry:

Step One: Your family purchases gifts to be included in Operation Christmas Child boxes. Please include your child in shopping - talking with him/her about this mission endeavor. We will provide the boxes.  You will need to include $7 per box for shipping costs or you may go to the OCC website at to make the donation and print out special EZ-Give boy/girl labels for your shoe box gifts. This will allow boxes to be tracked so you can find out the destination of your shoe box gifts. You may like to bring a picture of your child or family to include as well.

Step Two:  On Sunday, November 9th, we will meet in the Family Life Center during Sunday School (10:00 – 10:45).  We will watch a short video presentation and then prepare boxes for Operation Christmas Child. There will be stations for you to construct your boxes, write a letter to the child that will receive your box, and tables of items to fill your box. We will then take the boxes into the 11:00 Worship Service for dedication. This will be at the beginning of the service and you may leave following the dedication prayer (if you attended the 8:45 service).
We hope your family will plan to be with us. This event is our way of supporting you in encouraging your child’s heart for missions. If you need more information, please contact me at 252-259-7771.

I look forward to being on mission with your family,
Sharon Bender
