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.
We are still going through new curriculum of The Gospel Project for Kids At Home which helps you provide families at home with:
- Family worship experiences
- Prayer prompts
- Activity ideas

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.
Gospel- Centered Kids meets on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00pm in Room 113. Join us as we strive to build a strong Gospel-centered Bible foundation for children of all ages. Sunday school lessons and Bible skills will be reaffirmed each week through engaging activities, Bible stories, and games.
Following Jesus Changes Everything:
Spin the spinner, beat the clock, skip ahead, level up, and play to win! You'll need to bring your A-Game for this VBS! Twists & Turns is a fantastical celebration of games of all kinds. From classic tabletop games to strategy games to video games and more. Kids will play their way through VBS in fun locations! But more importantly, they'll see Jeus through the eyes of one of His closet friends and discover that trusting Jesus as Savior and following Him changes the game entirely!
For children who have completed Pre-K through 6th grade by the end of May 2023. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
On-line registration will begin Monday, May 1, 2023.
