Children at First Baptist Henderson are considered fully a part of our church family.
From responsibilities in worship leadership to retreat opportunities to engaging faith formation, our youngest members contribute fully to the life of our faith community.

In addition to our regular Tuesday and Wednesday meetings, activities are planned for the children throughout the year including End of Year Celebration and Summer Bible Day Camp. In the spring of each year, we hold a retreat for children in 3rd-5th grades at Camp Willow Run.
In recent years, a new method of religious education was introduced in our Christian Life I & II programs called Godly Play. Godly Play offers a creative, child-honoring way of entering into and experiencing the biblical story. In Godly Play, we play with the language of God and God’s People: our sacred stories, parables, liturgical actions and silence. Through this powerful language, through our wondering, through the community of players gathered together, we hear the deepest invitation of all: an invitation to come play with God.
