What are you about?

We're so glad you asked...

Children are a gift from God and have a place of importance both in the eyes of Jesus as well as in our local family of God here at the First Baptist Church of Decatur. Therefore we are committed to helping children find their place, not only in the story of God, but also to find their place of importance, their meaning and their place of service within the broader context of this church family.  

When pressed about what it means to be a follower, Jesus replied by saying:

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, 
with all your strength and with all your mind’; and love your neighbor as yourself.’”       
Luke 10:27 NIV

Partnering with you, the parent, we desire to see all children live into these words of Jesus by offering ample opportunities for children to learn and practice these four ways of loving God, loving themselves and loving others.
