Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

The Children's Ministry is under the leadership of Madi Rush, Children's Minister. She has the privilege of planning activities and creating learning and fellowship opportunities for children.

At First Baptist Hondo, our Children's Ministry events are planned especially for children of every age. The safety and well-being of each child is our highest priority. Because of this, we work hard to cultivate safe, age-appropriate environments where kids can learn about Jesus in a creative and engaging way.

Our Infants through Kindergarten-age kids are given our highest level of care and attention. Our team members aim to help children at this age understand the immeasurable love of Jesus through Bible stories, catchy songs and fun activities.

Children in first through sixth grades are engaged in Biblical learning through music, games, interactive lessons and hands-on activities. Kids learn how to apply the truth of the Bible to their daily lives and they have a whole lot of fun along the way.

Our "Safe Kids" Process    

Here's what to expect concerning the check-in process when visiting FBC Hondo for the first time:

First, find the area marked for children's check-in. There one of our Kid's Ministry team members will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

BEFORE Sunday School, Worship Service or Wednesday KidMin
: You can check-in your child at the check-in station. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.

AFTER Worship Service or Wednesday KidMin
: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s classroom and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
