First Baptist – Orange Children’s Ministry

The Children’s Ministry of First Baptist Orange strives to teach children the basics of the Christian faith and ultimately lead them to the point that they can answer God’s call to follow Him and accept His free gift of salvation. First Baptist Orange teaches children that God loves them; how they should love and serve God; and how they should love others.
