First Baptist is committed to Children.  Jesus taught us by example to love the children.   We offer Sunday School and Wednesday night classes for elementary aged children.  The children are also an important part of Morning worship service and later in the service have a special, separate time just for themselves.  Special events are offered throughout the year to encourage and train our children.

A message from the teacher:

My goal is to share the love of God with your children in a fun and safe environment. I want them to learn the Jesus loves them and has a plan for their life. We do this through stories, music, crafts and games.

I want each child to know that he/she is "Fearfully and wonderfully made" 

I look forward to sharing the love of Jesus with your preschooler and watching them grow physically, emotionally and spiritually.

A message from the teacher:

Our class begins with children selecting a name from the “prayer bucket” and updating their prayer book. They enjoy their prayer time for friends and church family. We then have Scripture based lesson and complete a lesson worksheet. Usually we do a craft or play a game that complements the lesson. The average class size is 4-5 students. We want to extend a sincere invitation to your 1st & 2nd graders, and to your entire family. You would be truly welcomed here!

A message from the teacher:

Hello! We are excited that you are interested in learning more about the 4th and 5th grade Sunday school class here at FBC Sellersburg.  Class begins with a light breakfast and prayer. The weekly Bible story is presented in an exciting, relatable way to 4th and 5th grade students.  Each lesson concludes with an opportunity for the children to make a personal connection between Biblical principles and experiences from their own lives. The focus of our class is to guide children into a full understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus changes lives, and it is our hope that 4th and 5th graders are changed for life by what they learn in Sunday school! We are an inclusive class that welcomes learners of all ability levels and backgrounds. Please join us; you don’t want to miss the fun and learning!
