Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry will continue to offer in person activities and a Zoom option for families not yet comfortable returning to church. Activities will occur at 10 am during the Worship Service.

Children’s Ministry staff will continue to take temperatures of children participating in activities. Following the guidance of the Maryland Department of Health and Maryland State Department of Education, staff will continue to wear masks during Children’s Ministry. Children over the age of 2 that can successfully wear a mask are strongly recommended to do so for activities in the building. As weather allows for activities to be outdoors and children can be distanced 6 feet, masks breaks will be allowed.

If your child would like to participate using Zoom, please email rachelann.rp@gmail.com to receive an invitation for each Sunday’s activities.

You can also visit http://Lifeway.com for a Bible story and activity page.

Waverley School Supplies Ministry:  It is that time  of year again! Children will be going back to school in about six weeks. Through our partnership with Waverley Elementary School we have spent the last 8 years supplying every child at the school with all of their school supplies and sponsoring kids on field trips. We also contributed to the new electronic sign the school installed. This sign helps keep parents and the community up to date on all of the events at the school. Our partnership is a part of our mission to be unmistakable and irreplaceable in our community. The teachers and administration look forward to this fundraiser and are extremely thankful for our generosity to the Waverley community.

The happy rulers are back on the walls in the Worship Center. Take a ruler as a reminder to pray for the Waverley School community and donate $25. Make sure you label your donation with Waverley fund so that the money can go to the school.

In years past we have collected between $3000 and $5000 for the school. Please consider giving to this important mission. Thank you!

As you’re headed west on Highway 40, look for the Bowers Road sign shortly after SMH Auto Sales on the right.  Turn right on Bowers Road and continue up the hill.  The driveway to First Baptist Church will be on the left on the crest of the hill just past a white, two story, private residence also on the left.  You will see the sign for First Baptist Church on the left which marks our driveway.  7040 Bowers Road, Frederick, MD  21702
