children's ministries

Children of all ages are welcome in worship!

There are many ways children serve as worship leaders, enhancing worship for all of us. Children can serve as ushers or greeters, and acolytes and water bearers help us prepare for worship. There are other special times throughout the year that children participate as worship leaders.  Remember, friends are always welcome! 


For more information about any of the activities listed below, please contact Mrs. LaVerne "Sam" Baublit, Director of Christian Education at (830) 257-3310 or email at sbaublit@fpckerrville.org. To learn more about Sam, click here.

FPC offers Sunday School for children who are 2 years old up through 5th grade.
