At FM Kids we exist to guide everyday kids to sacrifice for Christ’s Kingdom. We want to partner with parents in distilling within every child a passion, excitement, and love for Jesus, His mission, and His church. We have created discipleship environments that allow each child to grow in knowledge and love for Christ, to passionately worship Christ, and to serve Christ and the people He so dearly loves. These environments are:
FM Kids Life (9:00 AM) - Life Groups intended to train in the Scriptures, to regularly share and thank God for the Good News of Jesus, to pray for each other, to hold each other accountable, and to train up disciples.
FM Kids Worship (10:30 AM) - A Kids Church experience intended to worship and glorify God. To teach and show kids what a great joy it is to be known by, loved by, and saved by Jesus. It also models an adult worship service, preparing and empowering kids to be lifelong worshippers of Jesus.
These two groups only meet during the school year.
Children's Choir (5:00 PM) - Every Child that comes through this program will learn musical and spiritual skills. This group has the opportunity to perform in productions each year and sings in Sunday Services. Children's Choir is for 1st through 6th graders. Rehearsals are from 5:00 – 6:00 PM every Sunday Evening in the Treetop Theatre in Kid Central.
RA’s and GA’s (6:00 PM) - Girls in Actions is a dynamic missions organization for girls in grades 1 through 6. Through GA, girls learn about, pray for, give to, and do missions work. They also make new friends and have lots of fun! RA is an exciting and fun-filled missions education organization for boys in grades 1–6. Through hands-on activities that encourage spiritual growth, games and sports, boys gain a greater understanding of God's work in the world and how they can join Him in His work.
TeamKID (6:30 PM) - TeamKID is a fun, recreation-based club for kids! TeamKID balances high-energy activities and games with high-impact Bible lessons, and memory verses that help kids apply Bible truths to real life.
Seasonal Discipleship Opportunities
New Believers’ Classes- These are designed for kids (1st-4th) who are interested in learning what it means to be a follower of Christ or who have recently given their lives to Christ. It teaches about salvation, the Gospel, discipleship, church, the Lord’s Supper, and baptism. We will work to use it as a prerequisite to baptism as a safety net for kids. This is a parent-child formatted class with activities for parents to do with their kids in and out of the classroom.
Growing Believers’ Classes will be for 3rd-4th graders and will be field trip based with an important talk given on living faithfully for Jesus at some point during the time together.
VBS- Vacation Bible School is a weeklong Summer adventure where kids hear exciting Bible stories, play fun games, create interesting crafts, sing high energy songs, and much more!
