but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 19:14 ESV
The Bible paints a clear picture of how special children are to the Lord. God created the life span and designed every age and stage to uniquely be able to engage in relationship with Him. Children are able to learn about, love, and serve God, just as they are. What children learn about God, the world, and themselves at a young age will determine the type of adult they grow to be, making the childhood years a critical time of discipleship. God has called the church to share the gospel and make disciples of all people and He has given parents a unique responsibility to love and shepherd their children. With this understanding the Children’s Ministry exists to partner with parents in raising children to know and follow the Lord.

At FBC Benbrook’s Children’s Ministry our goal is for every child who comes to understand 3 things:
- They are loved by God and He desires a relationship with them,
- They are created unique and for a purpose,
- They are part of a church family that loves and values them, just as they are!
Our Sunday morning curriculum, the Gospel Project, immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
On Wednesday nights we focus on learning scripture and how to apply it to our lives in Awana for ages 3 years through 4th grade and Preteen Bible Study for 5th-6th Graders.
Throughout the year we hold a variety of events to provide opportunities for fellowship, evangelism, worship, discipleship, and ministry, all on a level designed for each unique developmental stage!
