First Baptist Church of Memphis’ ministry to children demonstrates God’s love through our relationships with children.  We are a church that values children for who they are and what they teach us about the kingdom of God.  We seek to nurture children’s growth as followers of Christ through education and spiritual formation in our regular weekly programs and special events.

Summer Sunday School Theme

This summer we’ll be exploring the Bible through the eyes of Dr. Seuss and Pixar! During the month of June we will learn that God hears us when we call, that there are times when we need to tell God we’re sorry, that following Jesus gives us a strong foundation, and that God loves us not matter what. Each Sunday we will explore these topics with a different Dr. Seuss book. In July we will learn more about our life in Christ by watching clips from different Pixar movies. Children need to have visible reminders of biblical principles so that they will be able to absorb the concepts behind them. These lessons are just those reminders!

August-May Sunday School

Children in kindergarten through fifth grade first gather together in the Temple to hear the Bible story for the day, sing songs, and pray. Following Temple Time, children are split up by grade and go to a different rotation each week. Rotations include art, science, cooking, drama, games, and more so that children can learn the same stories from different perspectives and in ways that meet their learning needs.

Children’s Worship – Sundays – 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

At the beginning of our Sunday morning worship service, children through grade 2 are invited to leave the sanctuary and attend children’s worship, which includes a children’s sermon and activity.

Children’s Missions – Wednesdays – 6:15-7:00 p.m.

Through local missions projects and the Sparks curriculum, children’s creativity and gifts are nurtured as they live out the gospel message of sharing God’s love with others.


Junior Sparks – Girls in Kindergarten through second grade. 

Sparks – Girls in third through fifth grade. 

Boys Missions – Boys in Kindergarten through fifth grade. 

Bible Drill – Sundays – 12:15-1:15 p.m. 

Children in fourth through sixth grade grow in the wisdom and knowledge of the Bible, memorizing the books of the Bible, key passages, and scripture verses with fun games and activities. If they choose, they may compete in the church, associational, and state drills.
