Having a community of young believers that can learn and grow in their love of God is a crucial aspect of First Baptist Church of Norristown. We believe that children grow in their faith the same way adults do, through diving into the Word, engaging in fellowship, and acting on their faith. We have many opportunities for children to connect with God.
Youth Group is open to all students in grades six through twelve. This is a great opportunity for teens to grow closer to God and in their faith. We gather for fun, games, snacks, and, most importantly, a Bible-centered real-life lesson. We meet on the select Fridays of each month from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. And, as always, you're invited to bring a friend!
During our normal Sunday services, we offer a Kid's Church class for children ages four and up. We provide age-appropriate lessons for kids to engage in while the rest of the congregation receives the Word from our pastor. Children will be able to create fun Bible-related crafts, learn about important Bible stories, and much more! As with all of our Children's Ministries, all volunteers have background check clearances.
J.O.Y. Kids Club
The Jesus-Others-Yourself Kids Club is here! Two children's groups (one for pre-K children, and the other for students in kindergarten through 5th grade) will meet on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. It will begin at 10:30 AM and end at noon, and a snack will be provided! The group will be led by FBC volunteers, and, of course, parents are also welcome to stay. We hope to see you there!
