FBC Macon

Nurture. Love. Serve. ALL.

We’re proud of our Baptist history and heritage, but we’re also proud of our diversity. At First Baptist you will find a group of people coming from a variety of different church backgrounds and denominations who have found a home at the “top of Poplar.” And while our congregation comes from all over middle Georgia, we are a downtown church and see it is our mission to be the presence of Christ to our InTown and College Hill communities here in Macon.


A Community of Belonging

Jesus welcomed children into the midst of his community, and so do we.  Children become a part of our community by:

  • Worshipping with families in an inter-generational family of faith
  • Developing relationships with adult mentors
  • Sharing their “Celebrations” with the congregation weekly
  • Playing with other children and adults
  • Joining together for camps, Vacation Bible School, and field trips
  • Receiving nursery care by consistent, nurturing caregivers

Respect for the Bible, Prayer and Worship

Our congregation deeply values reverent worship, and our children are taught to appreciate reverence through:

  • W.O.W. (Working on Worship) for Preschoolers
  • Graded Children’s Choirs
  • Creative prayer experiences

Nurturing Understanding

Learning is an important part of our ministry to children.  Regular learning opportunities include:

  •  Bible Study in weekly Sunday School
  •  Missions Education about global and local missions
  • Special programs on Baptist heritage, Bible skills, discipleship, and other areas of spiritual formation

Service to Others

Our children are taught to live out their faith in service to others.  Service opportunities include:

  • Volunteering with and donating to local service organizations
  • Caring for homebound church members
  • Supporting our global missions partners


Nursery care is provided for infants - age 3 during regular church services and programs on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights as well as for special events.  Paid caregivers in each nursery classroom offer consistency and stability so that our children, their parents and our caregivers get to know each other well and build a relationship of trust.

Our nursery is located in the High Street Education Building just off of the main entrance from the parking lot.  First-time nursery guests will be asked to fill out a Child Information Sheet (download here) with basic information that will be helpful for childcare workers.  Pagers are also available so that parents can be reached in case of a need or emergency.
