What is your child safety policy?

Children are precious to us and our love for them cannot be overstated.  We are committed to providing the safest environment possible.  Children who participate in the programs and use the facilities of Friendship Baptist Church are entitled to the very best care by persons who treat them in a godly and compassionate manner.  As a result of our commitment, members of our church who desire to work in our children’s ministries must apply for Child Safety Approval which includes a criminal background check, reference check, training in our procedures and policies, and an interview with our Child Safety Director, Associate Pastor Rick Schrenker. Approved workers are required to update their record and commitment annually.


When can a child experience a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?

This varies with each individual child, depending upon background and learning experience.  When a child expresses a desire to accept Christ as Saviour, a trained counselor thoroughly explains what the Bible says about salvation. 


When can a child be baptized?

Generally speaking, after salvation children are eligible to be baptized.  When a child has accepted Christ as Saviour they and their parents may speak with one of our pastors who can arrange for their baptism.


What about dedicating my baby to Christ?

Babies are definitely a gift from God!  Baby dedication is a time for Christian parents to show to the Lord and to the church family that they are dedicating themselves to raising their new child for God.  This event does not have a part in a child’s salvation, but is a meaningful memory for parents.  The Baby Dedication Service is held yearly on the last week of April.
