First Baptist Church of Portland, TN

Children’s Ministry

Children are very important at First Baptist Church Portland!

It is our prayer that your child will feel at home here at FBC and will have fun while learning that Jesus loves them and desires to have a relationship with them.

All teachers and volunteers have background checks before they are able to work with children 17 years old and younger.


Sunday School

An understanding of God’s Word is the best way to personally know Jesus Christ.  We realize the importance of instilling biblical truths in children while they are at an active stage of learning.  Our Children’s Department is divided by grades where appropriate age-level learning activities are used that will assist your child in understanding God’s Word.  Sunday School for children is during the 10:20 a.m. hour.


 RAs – Royal Ambassadors and GAs – Girls in Action

Spreading the Gospel is a vital part of our church’s mission statement.  RAs and GAs help develop our children’s knowledge of the mission field.  During this time, they learn about specific missionaries who are at work here in the US and all over the world.  They are also involved in local projects to help the needy and reach out to the community.  RAs and GAs meet on Sunday nights at 5:30 p.m. for 1st – 6th graders.


CentriKid Camp

CentriKid is an overnight camp for 4th–6th graders to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ!  From the future sports star to the young scientist to the rising chef, every kid gets to participate in exciting activities of their choice.  Church groups bring kids to camp where they’ll take part in Bible study, recreation, track times, and worship.  CentriKid at Campbellsville University in Campbellsville, KY is our favorite CentriKid location.  Camps are staffed by college and seminary students who can’t wait to hang out with your kids and love to share Christ through every aspect of camp!
