Children and Family

The vision of Children and Family Ministry is to:

  • GROW in Knowledge
  • LOVE God and Others
  • SERVE thru Action

Church is for kids! We want children to know that Birmingham First is their church. It is a place where they can have fun, build lasting relationships, and experience the love of Jesus Christ.
