Welcome to the Children's Ministry at First Southern Baptist Church! 
 

Please check out our many areas of ministry for children birth - 6th grade.  Contact me if you have any questions or wish to get your children connected to something good!! 
Being a kid isn't always easy these days, and we understand the pressures they face.  We don't want kids to just know about God.  We want them to know their Creator, their Savior and their Lord in a personal and intimate way!  We desire to be a spiritual influence reaching children in Garden City, the Great Plains, and the world with the good news of Jesus Christ!  We hope to make a difference in the life of each and every child...
one smile at a time!
Serving Him,
Children's Minister

What to expect when you arrive: 


     When you arrive at First Southern Baptist Church we want you to be welcomed with a smiling face!  We want your children to feel welcome and happy in our children's ministry.   It's also important to us to maintain a safe environment for your children.  This requires that we have current information on every child placed in our care.  That's why we use a secure check-in system called KidCheck. 
       As an authorized KidCheck provider we are able to partner with you, the parents, to maintain accurate contact information, update your child's information, create lists of authorized and restricted guardians, and even upload photos for added security.  By creating your own personal KidCheck guardian account you remain in control of your child's information and can maintain and update it right from your home computer.  This secure system provides our children's ministry volunteers with the current information needed to properly care for your child.  It also makes our check-in process fast, simple and effective.  It's a win-win system! 
    When arriving at church, please stop by our KidCheck station with your children.  Within seconds we can have identification for your child, authorized guardian identification for you, important health information you've provided us, as well as your child's location while in our care.  This check-in system is required for children birth - sixth grade.
    New guardian accounts only take a few minutes and are then ready to use each time you arrive!  New guardian accounts can be created at the church or at home by going to www.kidcheck.com.  Choose First Southern Baptist Church, Garden City, KS. as your location.
    For added safety and assurance, we require each of our volunteers who work in the children's department to undergo a background check. 
    If you have any questions or concerns about our KidCheck system, please call me and I will be happy to visit with you.  You may also visit www.kidcheck.com to get more information.
    We look forward to ministering to you!
