fh kids

FH Kids provides a safe and loving environment for children to encounter the Lord. We take safety seriously and we do everything possible to make it a safe place for your family. Since we believe parents are God’s chosen primary faith trainers for their children, we will partner with you to help equip you to lead your children to grow in their faith. Our FH Kids staff is here to serve you!


On Sunday mornings, we provide children's programming for babies through 5th graders during the Sunday School hour. This programming includes Bible Lessons, crafts, and games. There are two primary children's areas: the Nursery downstairs (for babies to 4 year olds) and Kidville (for Kinder to 5th grade). 

During the Worship Service, childcare continues for our babies to 2 year olds in the Nursery. Our 3's, 4's, and Kindergarten classes are invited upstairs with the big kids for Kids Worship -- a time of games, singing, Bible stories, and crafts. Children older than Kindergarten are encouraged to attend the Main Worship Service with their parents. 

"Kids Bags" are provided during the main service and include an interactive element to help children connect with the sermon each week. They are available to pickup upon exiting Kidville as well as in the foyer of the Worship Center.

  • There are two check-in stations located at the entrance to Kidville and the entrance to the Nursery. Volunteers are available to help check families in and ensure security stickers are issued. Please keep your sticker for pick up - it is required for safety purposes.
  • If you see your sticker’s code appear on the corner of the screen during service, please send one parent to your child’s ministry area.
  • Please pick up your child at the same location as drop off.

Fredonia HIll Baptist Academy

Fredonia Hill Baptist Academy was established in 1972 to offer the community a top quality Christian preparatory school with the goal of producing students prepared to be successful in school and in life. The academy started with just fifty students and today they offer classes for three year olds through 8th grade. 

"Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity, show yourselves an example of those who believe." 1 Timothy 4:12.
