Welcome children & families

Welcome, we are so glad you are interested in exploring our ministry with children and families.  Whether you are new to town and looking for a church home or just curious about what we do, we have tried to anticipate your questions.  After exploring the questions and answers section at the bottom of this page, if you still have questions, please contact Kristen Koger.

Join us for a night of good food, bounce houses, carnival games, cupcake walks, face painting, and the farmer's market!

Our annual fall festival is a favorite event in the Decatur community. This event is open to the public. Games and activities are free and food will be available for purchase. We hope to see you at the fall festival! 




SPIRITUAL FORMATION: FBU Kids Prepares for advent

Even though we are awaiting the changing of the leaves, the children at FBCD are preparing for the Hanging of the Greens! 

Beginning September 27, our children will begin to prepare for the Advent season. Advent is one of the most important times in the year of the church; it takes a long time to get ready. 

For the first three weeks, we will be making Chrismon ornaments (see image to the left). Chrismons are decorations with Christian symbols on them. If you would like more information on Chrismons, click here

Children will also learn two Advent songs that will be shared at the Hanging of the Greens service on November 26. Stay tuned for more information about this intergenerational worship service!

Children who are PreK-5th grade will participate in this program. Younger children (infants-3 year olds) will be in nursery care. Contact Kristen Koger if you have any questions.
