Preschool + Children's Ministry
The Preschool and Children's Ministry at FBC Altus exists to glorify God and further His kingdom on earth. We do this through partnering with parents to build a strong Gospel-centered Bible foundation that will continue throughout their children’s lives. Children will learn to know, love, and serve Jesus through Sunday School, Mission classes, and other ministry activities.
For more information, contact the Preschool/Children's Office at (580) 482-1777.
Sunday School is the foundation of our Children’s Ministry. Children are taught age-appropriate lessons and activities that guide them as they grow in knowledge of God’s word. Our goal is for every child to hear about Jesus and have the opportunity to know Him personally as led by the spirit, learn Bible skills, and learn to serve others.
Mystery Box & Extended Teaching Care
We do offer childcare, Extended Teaching Care, during the Worship Service for babies through three-year-old classrooms. Children are cared for by committed, and loving congregation members who volunteer on a rotating basis. All volunteers are pre-screened before serving in ETC.
** NOTE: Wednesday Children's Activites will resume in Janurary 2021.
Children's Mission Programs are offered from 6:00-7:00pm during the school year.
Girl's In Action (GA's, girls 1st-6th grade) meet in Room 217.
Girls in Action is designed to help girls come to faith in Christ as Savior, while making missions an important part of their daily lives. They learn what it means to live a missional lifestyle while they participate in Bible study, missions projects, and engaging activities. They also have a lot of fun and build lasting memories as they “travel” to various places around the world when they learn about the work of missionaries.
Royal Ambassadors (RA's, boy 1st- 6th grade) meet in Room 113.
Royal Ambassadors® is a Southern Baptist missions education organization for boys in grades 1–6. RA's provides an opportunity for boys to develop Christian character through missions involvement and virtue commitments; in addition to growing spiritually, physically, mentally, and in relationships with others. In RA, boys will learn a biblical worldview,ways to demonstrate the love of Christ to others., how God is working around the world, and that they are a part of God’s plan.
Mission Friends (Babies-Kindergarten)
Preschool is an exciting time in a child's life, where they develop an understanding of who God is and how they play a part in His plan for the world. Mission Friends —was created to provide preschoolers the building blocks of faith and teach them of God's love for all people. Through engaging activities, games and stories each week, Mission Friends will move from a focus on self to a focus on others. This builds a lasting foundation that helps them grow into the next generation of Christ followers who will further His kingdom on earth.
