At FBC Matthews, our goal is to create a Multi-generational Faith that outlives the next generation.

The church is here to partner with parents on a spiritual journey from birth to adulthood. 

Deuteronomy 6:5-7
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”

Our goal is to provide a lifelong ministry that is natural, inviting and sustainable as part of all generations who together reach UP to God, IN to the church, OUT to the World.

Sunday Morning
Children have the oportunity to Reach IN to the church through exciting, action packed Sunday School Classes and Worship Time. At 9:00am we host a special learning environment for school-age children called The Depot, while preschool children are in age appropriate Sunday school groups. During the 10:30 service Sunday school is available for both preschool and school age children.

The Safety of your child is of great importance to us.
Prior to attending Sunday school or The Depot you will need to visit one of our Childrens' Ministry Check in stations. If you are checking in more than one child, you will be able to check all of your children in at one time. Your child will be given a room assignment and security/check-in tags. The tag will include a four-digit security code. Place the tag on your child’s shirt and drop your child off at his assigned room. Remember to keep the parent security tag as it ensures that you are the only person able to pick up your child at the end of Sunday service. If we need to contact you during the service, a text message will be sent to your phone.

If you are a first time guest or you attend First Baptist Matthews regularly, Childrens' Ministry Volunteers are always available to help you with the check-in process. All of our amazing adult volunteers have gone through an application process that includes a background check, interview, and personal references.

School age children are encouraged to attend church with their families at either the 9:00am or 10:30 service.
