Ministries dedicated to children at First Baptist Church of Vacaville.
Our mission is to create the spark within each child that will lead to a long-lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. We want children to encounter God and His works through our ministries, leading them toward healthy lifestyles and relationships.
We teach children to experience the presence of God through the study of God's Word, prayer, worship, sharing testimonies, and paying careful attention to what the Lord might be doing around them.
Oh, and we have fun! Children are children after all, so we build fun activities and games that help encourage participation, shape relationships, and foster a healthy environment for learning. Boredom is not allowed!
On Sunday mornings, we offer a variety of age-appropriate options for children:
Nursery—Our nursery recently underwent a major renovation, creating a clean and safe environment for your children. Our loving nursery staff will care for your babies and toddlers while you worship, learn, and serve without distraction. We invite you to come tour our nursery to see if it's right for your children. The nursery is located in the single-story building immediately behind the main sanctuary.
Toddlers—Our toddler program involves age-appropriate activities centered around learning and fun!
Preschool through 6th Grade—We have several classrooms where children are taught the stories of the Bible at an age-appropriate level. We make learning fun! Come see what we offer your children!
The safety of your children is our primary concern. We appreciate you trusting them to our care, a privilege we don't take lightly. All teachers and helpers in all children's ministry are required to complete:
- Safety training that includes:
- What to do in emergency.
- How to spot signs of abuse.
- Abuse reporting requirements and processes.
- Background checks conducted by an outside third party that include:
- A thorough interview
- Criminal history
- Biblical training. Instructors follow approved curriculum that prevents "mixed messages" when interpreting the Word of God.
