He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 

Matthew 10:14 (NIV)

Overview of Children’s Ministry

  • Holistic and safe. We care for the spiritual, emotional, social, and physical needs of children from infancy through 5th grade. To create a safe environment for our children, FBC Muncie requires that all Children’s Ministry volunteers be background checked and children can only be picked up by a parent/guardian with a matching security tag. For more information on FBC Muncie’s Child Protection Policy or the pick-up/drop-off safety procedures, go to the “Frequently Asked Questions” section below.

  • Age-appropriate. FBC Muncie has three classroom experiences, each designed with the specific age and developmental stages of children in mind. While in their classrooms, you can expect your children to learn biblical teachings through play areas with age-appropriate toys, group activities, books, and crafts.

  • Part of the life of the entire congregation. FBC Muncie believes that God created the church to be intergenerational. Children bring new gifts, energy, and perspectives that encourage the adults, while adults model for children what it looks like to worship and live out the Christian faith. For these reasons, FBC Muncie is committed to creating regular opportunities for children to be involved in worship and community service alongside the adult members of the congregation.

Sunday School

Sundays at 9:30 a.m.

“Sunday School” refers to a time of small group Bible lessons during the hour before our regular worship service. FBC Muncie has Sunday School classes for all ages. Sunday School starts at 9:30 a.m., but our Children’s Ministry volunteers will be ready and available for you to drop-off your children starting at 9:15 a.m.

Following Sunday School, parents with young children in the Nursery are invited to leave their children in their classroom and head straight to the sanctuary for worship.

Parents of older children in Preschool through 5th grade will pick-up their children from Sunday School at 10:15 a.m. Families are invited to fellowship at Donut Hour together, and children will join the congregation for the first part of worship before being dismissed to Children’s Church.

Worship and Children’s Church

Sundays at 10:45 a.m.

FBC Muncie provides childcare throughout all of worship for infants through 3 year olds in the Nursery (Rm. 104).

Because FBC Muncie believes that Children’s Ministry should be part of the life of the entire congregation, we welcome preschool through 5th grade children to participate in the first part of Sunday worship with the adults.

During this time, children will be invited to join their families and the congregation in:

  • singing, clapping, and dancing to praise songs

  • reading and listening to holy Scripture

  • praying

  • participating in occasional “Children’s Time,” activities and lessons at the front of the sanctuary.

When the first part of worship is over, a member of the FBC Muncie Leadership Team will invite all the children to line up and follow our Children’s Ministry volunteers to Children’s Church. Preschool children (ages 4-5) will have Children’s Church in Rm. 102 and children 1st-5th grade will have Children’s Church in Rm. B01. You are also welcome to walk with your child to Children’s Church if that makes you or your child feel more comfortable.

During this second half of worship, adults will have the opportunity to hear the sermon and call of response without worrying about entertaining their children. Meanwhile, during Children’s Church, your kids will be engaging with the Bible story through short stories, crafts, games, and other age-appropriate group activities.

When worship is over, parents will take their security tag to pick-up their children from their various classrooms. If you are unsure where a classroom is located, you can stop by the Welcome Center and someone there will be able to guide you.

Kids Quest

1st & 3rd Sundays at 5:30 p.m.

Kids Quest is a time for children to learn about God’s work in the world, both locally and globally. Children will see how God’s actions in scripture are reflected in the work of featured organizations and participate in service projects benefiting those organizations. Kids Quest takes place at the same time as Youth Small Groups and the Heimlich Life Group
