We're dedicated to providing a safe and fun environment in which children of all ages will learn the basics of faith and build a strong foundation for the future.
Sunday Bible Study
FBNO takes the commitment to lay a strong biblical foundation in the early years seriously. Engaging Bible study leaders are eager to make the Bible come alive to kids of all ages - from infants through pre-teens.
Sunday Kids' Worship
Worship Care | Infant - 3 years old (through 5 years old in 8:15 service)
Infants through 3 years of age are cared for during the worship service by a team of preschool staff, committed volunteers, and parents of preschoolers.
Preschool Worship | 4 years old - Kindergarten (10:45 service only)
Kids 4 years of age through Kindergarten participate in a worship experience incorporating video, fun music, and interactive games.
Kids' Worship | 1st - 4th Grade (10:45 service only)
The Gospel Project curriculum offers a chronologic study of the Bible that incorporates video, interactive music, and learning actives in a manner that kids can grasp! Kids sit with their parents in corporate worship until they are dismissed to Kids Worship. Parents pick up their kids in Room 103 (located in the lobby outside of the Worship Center) at the end of the Worship Service.
On Wednesday nights, our children and preschoolers participate in M&M's (Missions and Music). It's age-appropriate, interactive learning that's fun for everyone, no matter their size.
The preteen years are a unique time in the life of a young person. FBNO wants to help preteens make the most of these years! The Preteen Ministry presents opportunities geared toward helping preteens transform the way they live, play, and work. On both Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, we have Bible studies designed specifically for preteens.
Parents make a public commitment during corporate worship to raise their children in a manner that is consistent with the teachings of scripture. The church also makes the commitment to provide resources and guidance to parents in this journey. Baby dedication is scheduled 2-3 times each year.
Building Blocks of Faith
This two-hour mini parenting conference is part of FBNO's Baby Dedication. Parents participate in these classes, held during the Bible Study hour for the two weeks preceding the dedication service.
New Believers Class
A five-week New Believers Class is periodically offered to children who have recently accepted Christ. Children learn the fundamentals of the Christian faith, how to share their own testimony, and ways they can continue to grow in their faith.
Topical parenting classes are offered periodically during the Bible Study hour to parents of preschoolers and children.
