At First Baptist Church of Tahlequah, we value raising up children in the love of God. We know how important it is to invest in their futures by teaching them the word of God in fun, age-appropriate ways. Our priority is partnering with families to develop a biblical foundation based on hope and love.


Our youngest children are provided with a safe and comfortable environment where they are cared for and loved on. While we tend to their needs, we introduce them to Jesus through prayer, songs, and developmentally-appropriate play. Toddlers can participate in crafts, fun worship songs, and simple Bible lessons.



As children grow, we encourage them to develop their faith and to make friends as they continue to participate in age-appropriate worship time and fun, interactive Bible lessons. Special events, VBS, and camps are provided as year-round activities for children to grow in their faith and make new friends.



The transition from child to teenager is a special time of growth. We’ve placed pre-teenagers in their own group so that we can help them grow in their faith in the midst of an impressionable stage. On Sunday mornings, in Vacation Bible School, and through summer camps, our pre-teens are encouraged to learn scripture, and authentically walk with God.
