FBC Tampa’s Children’s Ministry, for kindergarten through 5th grades, is focused on teaching children God’s love and showing them how they can apply His love to their lives each day. Our goal is to provide a biblical framework and foundation that will lead them to conversion, spiritual growth, and a biblical worldview. This goal is based on Romans 10:17 – “So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ.”
