Connect Groups


At First Baptist, the focus of our Sunday morning Connect Groups is to reach people for Christ, teach people God’s Word, and minister to people’s needs. With an ever increasing attendance, getting into one of our small groups is a perfect opportunity for you to get to know the First Baptist family and for us to get to know and minister to you. There are classes for all ages and we would love the honor of having you join with us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM.

Preschool: Birth to Kindergarten

Our Preschool classes provide a safe, fun, and loving environment for young children from birth through Kindergarten. Classes are divided by development and age. Class sizes are small to ensure that all children receive personalized care and attention. Children are taught biblical truths and lessons from God's word in a way that is age appropriate and so much fun. Parents can enjoy their own classes knowing that their children are safe, happy, and learning about God. We look forward to meeting your preschooler and sharing God's love with them.

If you have any questions about our preschool classes please contact Joette Nanney at

Elementary: Grades 1st through 6th

As the children's ministry at FBC, we recognize this as an exciting time in the life of a child. Our desire is to see children develop and grow a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our foundation is based on Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it”. Children's classes and biblical content correspond with the child's current school grade level. Classes are facilitated by enthusiastic teachers whom have a heart and desire to serve our Lord in this area. Join us as we embark on a journey to discover and apply God's truths!
