Children's Ministry

We have so much going on in our Children's Ministry and we love every minute of it! There are Sunday and Wednesday classes for all ages.  There are also many events during the year to add more ministry opportunities for this age group.

Our Children's Ministry has many opportunities for kids to connect! See what we have to offer and like our Facebook page!


Our sole mission in children’s ministry is to protect, love, and teach your children about Jesus from birth to 5th grade. Jesus has given us a command in Matthew 28: 19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” He also said in Matthew 19:14 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

We are not a part of this ministry for just child care. While we want to care for your child so you might worship freely, attend Bible studies, and listen to the sermon without distraction, we will take every opportunity given to teach your child about Jesus who has come to save all of us from our sins. He is the reason we have redemption and the love we have to share with your children.

Thank you for the opportunity to partner with you in teaching your children spiritually as they grow physically.


We have many teachers in our ministry who want to teach your children about Jesus. We want you to rest assured that even though you might not know your child’s teacher yet, you will build a relationship with their teachers as they work with you and teach your child regularly.

All our teachers are:

  • Background Checked
  • had have a 6 months+ presence at FBC Dover
  • are a member of FBC Dover
  • Our teachers are always placed two adults to a room for better classroom ratios and for emergency purposes. Any teachers who are under 18 years old will always be with an adult who is over 18 years old.

If you meet the qualifications above and would like to join our Children’s Ministry, please speak Amanda Watkins by calling the church office for more information!


Safety of your children is our top priority while they are in our care. Please see the age specific ways we keep your child safe and how you can help us make that possible!
