CHILDREN

The Children’s Ministry ministers to children in Grades 1-5. This ministry is designed to be exciting and full of energy with the primary goal of teaching children about Jesus Christ.
 
We believe the children of Pickens First Baptist Church have been placed in our ministry by the sovereign hand of God. The Children’s Ministry takes seriously the opportunity God has given us to impact their lives for eternity. We desire to partner with parents in teaching children about Jesus, praying that each one will trust Jesus as Savior and Lord, and equipping them to be growing disciples of Christ.

Truth Journey Sports Camp

At the beginning of every summer, our children’s ministry hosts a community-wide FREE sports camp at Jaycee Park. Truth Journey Sports Camp is much like Vacation Bible School where children rotate to different stations and learn about the Bible. However, each station of our sports camp teaches children how to play various sports while speaking truth into their lives from God’s Word.
 
Registration will open on May 6.

Joyful Noise Music Camp

Directly after Truth Journey Sports Camp, children have the opportunity to participate in a FREE music camp at our church.

Our music teachers are highly qualified, having performed in multiple venues all over the country, churches, and even American Idol. On the last day of music camp, our children perform for their family and friends at a special worship service.
