First Friends is first and foremost dedicated to preparing the next generation to serve in God’s Kingdom. We are partnering with parents to provide the spiritual, social, physical and emotional ingredients necessary to form a firm foundation for life.
Children, 6 weeks through age 5 are assigned to preschool rooms based on their date of birth. They are loved and cared for in their classroom allowing their parents to attend Bible Fellowship and Worship without worry or concern.

First Baptist Church of Arnold's Awana Clubs is for children two and a half years old (born 02/01/2016) through sixth Grade. The goal of Awana Clubs is to reach boys and
girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.
Awana Club Schedule:
Wednesdays, August - May, from 6:15--8:00 p.m.
All parents of children ages 6 weeks to pre-K are required to check in at the First Friends lobby area. First time visitors will be helped through the check-in procedure by one of our staff. You will be given labels to put on the child, their belongings and a receipt that is required for pick up. If your child has any food allergies, notify the staff at this time. We are equipped to handle your child during all 4 services at 8:00 am, 9:30 am, 11:00am and 6:00pm.
Along with the rest of Next Generation Ministry, we will be teaching The Gospel Project, which immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
