Children’s Ministry at First Irving

Kindergarten through fifth grade is one of the most exciting places to be at First Irving!!!

Our goal is to reach, teach & equip children in these age groups to live out lives of COURAGE, boldly speaking the name of Jesus wherever they go! (Joshua 1:9) We are discipling them to build their confidence in Christ through Childrens Bible Study (CBS) and Jesus And Me (JAM); training them to know the Word through Bible Drill and Bible Study and teaching them to know that God is there for them, loving them, strengthening them, and leading them. Jesus tells us in Matthew 19:14, "Let the children alone and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."


We have Children’s Bible Study (CBS) at 10:00 and 11:20 AM on the 1st and 2nd floor of the Kinkeade Building each Sunday morning. These times together serve as the foundation of the Children's Ministry.

For Children Grades K-5

10:00 AM CBS | Kindergarten - First Floor | Grades 1-5 - Second Floor
11:20 AM CBS | Kindergarten - First Floor | Grades 1-5 - Second Floor

On Sunday Evenings, Bible Drill is held at 4:30 PM and 5:30 PM. Bible Drill is a program designed to help increase knowledge of the Bible, develop skills in effectively handling the Bible, and to begin developing memory skills. Fourth and Fifth grade Bible Drill is taught on a competition level. Children can compete if they would like the challenge. We use “Bible Skills, Drills & Thrills” developed by LifeWay Ministries.


The activities below are designed as a unique blend that include recreation, discipleship, Bible memorization, and missions focus, in order to help children know and understand the Word of God. - Bible Drill: 5:30 PM on Sunday Nights in the Fall & Spring - STOMP - Children’s Choirs: 6:30 PM on Wednesday Nights in the Fall & Spring - JAM (Jesus & Me): 6:00pm & 7:15 PM on Wednesday Nights in the Fall, Spring and Summer
