Children’s Ministry

First Kids Logo Our Mission is to Lay a Solid Foundation of Faith.

Baby Dedication Day is scheduled for Sunday October 22, 2017 at First Christian Church of Fort Myers.  If you would like to learn more about dedicating your child to God, or would like to participate in this event, please contact:

We believe in God’s plan for families to provide the spiritual development of their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-7), and we are blessed to have this opportunity to partner with you as your child enters into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ!

Well Child Policy

The Children’s Ministries of First Christian Church operate under a Well Child Policy in order to safeguard all children.   If a child needs medication, the parent must administer it. That includes topical lotions such as sunscreen or diaper cream/ointment.


For the welfare of all, parents are heartily encouraged not to bring sick children to church. Children will not be accepted in the classroom if they have any of the following:

  • nasal discharge (other than a minimal, clear discharge)
  • any discharge or matter around the eyes
  • fever (must be fever-free for 48 hours without fever-reducing medication)
  • rash
  • inflamed throat and/or mouth
  • coughing or sneezing
  • head lice
  • open wounds without proper bandages
  • unusually listless or irritable behavior

Children being treated with antibiotics should be on the drug for at least 48 hours.
