During the school year, K-5th graders take part in Children’s Choir, practicing on Wednesday evenings and performing on designated Sunday mornings! During the summer, K-5th graders take part in games and a Bible study focused on a particular topic.

Preschool children are divided based on age group and spend their time on Wednesday evenings learning biblical truth through play.

Catechism usage:

We utilize catechisms with our kids to equip them with key knowledge of the Christian faith. Catechisms focus on memorization and recitation to drive spiritual concepts into the heart from an early age. At First Baptist Powell, we specifically use the New City Catechism, which features 52 questions and answers that are memorized in different amounts depending on age. Learn more on the New City Catechism page.
