Church SchoolOn Sunday mornings, following the Children's prayer in worship, the children depart for the Church School where we Elevate Kids through music, scripture, skits, Bible stories, and activities in this fun, energetic, and faith-filled curriculum.
School Age Children
Our children participate in worship for the first half of the service then depart for Church School following the childrenís prayer. We break into age appropriate groups where we have a lesson and craft or activity for about 40 minutes. We then gather in the choir room to sing songs of praise to God. Those who have been baptized remain in the full worship the first Sunday of each month to participate in communion.
Our Preschoolers ages 3-4 depart worship following the childrenís prayer and participate in a variety of activities like stories, games, crafts, and play. They learn of Godís love for them and the whole world in a warm and nurturing environment.
Childcare or childrenís programs are offered during church services and events. During intergenerational events, children are with their families.

Reducing the Risk
The First Baptist Church of Rochester adopted a plan to help provide for the safety of the children, the vulnerable, and the frail. Reducing the Risk Policies and Procedures were developed and put into practice to help those who cannot protect themselves due to age or ability. We make sure children are always monitored by two responsible individuals, doors are secured when children are away from their parents, in the Education Wing, and screening of workers is completed.
