We welcome you and your child to the Nursery, Toddler, or Preschool Room of the First Baptist Church of Ypsilanti. We believe each child is a unique gift from God and we take pleasure in providing a safe and comfortable environment for your child(ren) so you will be free to focus on the worship of God and the study of His Word.  Care is provided Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings and for other events.  

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."  (Matthew 19:14) 


Kingdom Quest 

is the name of Sunday School for our children.  The kids gather in the lower level of the church which is decorated with your child in mind.  

Is it our mission to lead children to the knowledge that Jesus is the Word of God and to nurture their life-changing relationship with Him and His people by teaching them to hear His voice, as they seek His face through praise, prayer and worship.

They are taught major Bible stories and concepts through the following kid-friendly multimedia workshops:

  • Art workshop (Castle Creations)
  • Computer Lab (Kingdom.come) 
  • Storytelling (Kingsword Keep)
  • Movies (Crown Productions) 
  • Music (Kids of the Kingdom)     





Amazing Bible adventures, cool crafts, great games, awesome music, and swashbuckling food!  Grab your friends so everyone can get on board!
