Growing Ministries



The children’s ministry at First Baptist Church of Tupelo exists for one purpose—to help children know, love and follow God with all their heart, soul and strength. Our goal is to provide quality programs that will help lay a strong biblical foundation that one day will connect our children to God and lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We disciple them and encourage them to grow in their walk with Christ. The children are taught what it truly means to serve God. Here at First Baptist Church of Tupelo, our prayer is that every child would have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and grow in that relationship.

Meeting the needs of the children in our ministry means we are also here for their family. We believe that children are a gift from God. Because the parents, or caretakers, are the spiritual leaders of their children, it is our desire to guide them with encouragement and biblical principles during their child’s grade school years. If we can ever do anything for you, please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail, phone or in person. We are here to serve you and your family.

A Wonderful Beginning...
At First Baptist Church, we believe that the ministry to preschoolers and their families is an important one. We want to encourage and support our preschool parents in nurturing and instructing their children in the Lord. Many learning opportunities are offered at First Baptist that meet the spiritual needs of our preschoolers. We seek to give our preschoolers a place to learn about God and explore His love and character in a safe, secure environment.

"Our children shall serve Him, for they shall hear from us about the wonders of the Lord." Psalm 22:30

Our Preschool Mission Statement
To provide a warm and safe environment in which caring adults teach and reflect God's love in such a way that each child is provided the foundation upon which to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

"But Jesus said, 'Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.' " Matthew 19:14

At First Baptist Church, we provide a creative, hands-on approach for preschoolers to learn God's word in Grow Groups. Devoted, caring teachers work with preschoolers each Sunday to teach the Bible-related stories through activities, music and crafts that make learning about God fun and exciting. There is excitement in the preschool area on Sunday mornings as we learn about our GREAT BIG GOD! We provide Grow Group classes for babies, creepers, toddlers, twos, threes, fours and fives.
