Kids & Youth Ministry
We love our children here at First Baptist. On a given Sunday, we have a short children's message during the service and childcare offered for the second half. We also have Sunday School for children ages 2 through high school; it isn't year-round, so look here for its status.
Discovery is our youth group, which holds events throughout the year, including a trip to King of Prussia, PA during MLK Weekend. It is open to students 5th - 12th grade.
In the summer, there are many opportunities for children and teens. For children 3-years-old through 3rd grade, we run a Vacation Bible School week called Kids Club. We also run a fun week for middle school students called Adventure Works. This year, they take place from July 15 - July 19 from 9:30am - 12:00pm. Click either link to sign up!
Since 2009, Hope Community Church in King of Prussia, PA has come up to Southern Vermont to host two weeks of service in July, called SERVE. In the past several years, we have had a growing number of local students join the PA youth group, and many friendships have grown.
We also have connections to a Christian summer camp in New Hampshire called Camp Sentinel. There, children play games, have Bible studies, hike, canoe, swim, make crafts, and do all sorts of fun summer activities while disconnected from devices and the internet. It's a great time.
