There are many opportunities for lifelong learning at the First Baptist Church of Rochester. Through a variety of studies, topics, opportunities, challenges, and sources, individuals are inspired to expand, explore, and inform their life as Christians being engaged in the community around them. It is our desire that everyone is full to overflowing with God’s love enabling them to share it in the world.
Through Christian education our goal is to provide the tools, training, study, and fellowship needed to empower each individual to become fulfilled and fully developed disciples of Christ.
Our children participate in worship for the first half of the service then depart for Church School following the children’s prayer. We break into age appropriate groups (2nd through 6th grade and Preschool through 1st grade) where we have a lesson and craft or activity for about 40 -50 minutes. We currently use the Dig-In Curriculum which is focused on the Heart of God.
Following Church School we gather in the choir room to sing songs of praise to God under with Mr. Labman, Director of Music. Those children who have been baptized are encouraged to remain in worship the first Sunday of each month to participate in communion.
Periodically our children ages 1 through middle school will participate in an organized mission project. The children have made get well cards to send to people in need, they have packed snack bags for other children entering into foster care, and they collect each February food for Souper Bowl of Caring which benefits the Brighton Food Depot.
