First Baptist Church Joelton

The Loft


Our Children’s Ministry, “The LOFT” (Living Out Faith Truths), exists to provide children and their families a spiritual support system in which they can grow in their knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through our enlivening, biblically-based programming, children have the opportunity to learn about God and build a strong spiritual foundation. Children are the future church, and it is our goal that every child involved in our ministry would develop a lifelong relationship with the Savior.
