Children's Ministry

Scripture: "Allow the children to come to me," Jesus said. "Don't forbid them, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to people like these children" - Matthew 19:14

The Children's Worship will expose our children to the gospel of Jesus Christ at a level that they can understand and appreciate to ensure a fundamental understanding of salvation. The goal of this ministry is to make available opportunities for children to praise and worship God as well as learn about God and come to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. In addition, fellowship opportunities are provided along with follow-up sermon activities, and mission outreach activities that are all designed to promote the spiritual growth of children. Children are encouraged to participate in all worship service components, including, but not limited to: music, dance, scripture reading, prayers, and ushering.

Pastor of Children, Elbert Williams, III


The Franklin Avenue Baptist Church through the Nursery experience, desire to minister to the whole being of each child, their body, mind, and soul. We are designed and equipped to minister to children from ages 1 through 5.

We are prepared and focused on providing a clean and safe environment and establish an atmosphere of love and laughter. We have loving and caring caregivers as well as volunteers who enjoy seeing every child excitement when learning about Jesus.

The Nursery of Franklin Avenue Baptist exists to provide a secure, nurturing environment where biblical truths are taught as a foundation for salvation and Christian living.

Our goals for the growth of infants are based on the fact that they grow just as Jesus grew – mentally (in wisdom), physically (in stature), socially/emotionally (in favor with man), and spiritually (in favor with God).

In preparing them for the next level, we give them the opportunity to worship with the Children (ages 6-12) in Children’s Church every Sunday.
Nursery Hours: 8:30 am - 12:00 am
