Children’s Ministries


The focus of the Children’s Ministry at First Baptist Athens is…JESUS!!   From the Sunday School small groups to KidSing Choirs, to AWANA, to special events throughout the year, it’s all about Jesus!

Our desire is to

partner with parents in training up children in the Lord (Prov. 22:6). Therefore, we strive to offer the best programs in the safest environment to teach children the Bible and what following Jesus is all about.


SonRock Kid’s Camp 2017

Our children’s ministry is based on these verses:


Deuteronomy 4:39-40. “Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and earth below.  There is no other.  Keep His decrees and commands, which I am giving you today.  Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live.  Teach them to your children and their children after them.” 


Our Leadership Plan:
Leaders will prepare, love and pray that our children be directed to Jesus!
