First Baptist Church of Brunswick is known for being a family-friendly church but what exactly does that mean? Simply stated it just means that while we provide safe and age-appropriate ministry spaces for all of the beautiful children who worship with us every Sunday we do not require parents to send their children to a separate part of the building during worship if they chose not to. The sound of babies fussing and toddlers rustling papers is no distraction from the worship experience for any of us. That being said we are honored if you chose to allow our children’s workers the opportunity to teach your children age-appropriate gospel-centered lessons that will help provide them a firm foundation for their faith.
- If you have not already pre-registered your children here please arrive 15 min prior to service and one of our greeters will help you register your children and check them in at our welcome center. If you have pre-registered your children, again one of our greeters will help you check your children in at the welcome center.
- At the check-in station a tag for each one of your children, as well as a parent’s tag, will be printed for you. You will attach each corresponding tag to the back of your child’s shirt and you and your children are welcome to sit anywhere in the sanctuary you wish (we do not do assigned seats here ?). After a time of praise and worship as a family Pastor, Justin will call all of the children to the stage where he will pray over them and dismiss them to children’s church. At this time our trained and vetted volunteer children’s workers will escort your children down to the Student Life Center for their time of worship.
- At the conclusion of our worship service, you will head down to the student life center (down the stairs at the back of the sanctuary) where one of our children’s workers will get your parent tag from you, match the code on it with the one on your children’s tags and then dismiss them to you. Please note that no one under the age of 16 is allowed to present the parents’ tag and retrieve any children. Older siblings (16 and over) are allowed to retrieve younger siblings if they have been added to the list at registration and they have the parents tag.
Please Note: If visiting during the 9:45 am Sunday School hour check-in procedures are the same and a greeter will show you and your children to your appropriate classrooms. When Sunday School is over you will collect your children and head up to the sanctuary for our time of worship through singing before Pastor Justin calls your children up to the stage to pray over and dismiss them.
