children's ministry

FIRST KIDS is our ministry to children and their families.  At FBC Searcy, your children are a top priority.

Through the Gospel Project, preteen-specific curriculum, Awana, and Kids Choirs, you can expect to watch your child grow in their faith and knowledge of our Lord.  The entire Second Floor of our Children & Youth Building is dedicated specifically to First Kids ministry.  This page provides a glimpse of the ways your children can be involved at FBC Searcy.

Come grow with us at FBC Searcy.  You will not be disappointed!

Life Groups for Kids

We believe that Sunday morning Life Groups are a vital part of ministry to children in today’s world. That is why we place a high priority on these classes. You will find a class for every age with carefully chosen curriculum to guide them into developing faith in God and increasing that faith as they grow older. Here are our current Children's Life Groups:

Using a cirriculum from LifeWay called Hyfi, kids of all ages meet in an opening group time before splitting off into individual classrooms: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades meet in individual classrooms while 5th & 6th graders are combined into our Preteen Class.

Missions Education

Acts 1:8 and Matthew 20:19-20 remind us that missions is a vital part of the Church. During Awana and Children's Life Groups, children are taught about missions activities and how missionaries around the United States and around the world are making an impact for Christ. Learning about missions activities around the world is an important part of raising the next generation of missionaries.

Kids Choirs

We place a high priority on instilling a heart for worship at a young age. Kid's Choir is a great way to help your children learn about worship through music and drama.  We have two different Kid's Choirs (Grades 1-3 and Grades 4-6).  We seek to engage them in music and worship in exciting ways and provide opportunities for them to share and lead in our worship services.


Awana is an acronym that stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” and is based on 2 Timothy 2:15 which says, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” This is a discipleship program for kids. It includes scripture memorization, Bible teaching, and fun games/recreation. Through Sparks (1st & 2nd graders), Truth & Training Ultimate Adventure (3rd & 4th graders), and Truth & Training Ultimate Challenge (5th & 6th graders), Awana is teaching kids more about God and how to have a relationship with Him.
