“First Steps” is the name of our nursery and preschool ministry here at First Baptist Church Gadsden. At FBCG we place the highest value on meeting the needs of families, and that means putting our best resources and people into our preschool and children’s ministry. One way we minister to our families is to have nursery childcare for all services, programs and events where we expect parents to participate.


Not only are we focused on parents, but we love your children. Here at FBCG we feel honored every time a family entrusts us with their little one. On Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights we don’t just baby sit for you. Our teachers are reading to your children, teaching them bible stories with hands on learning, and oftentimes making crafts.

We also take safety and security very seriously. You will find our newly renovated preschool wing filled with loving, caring, background checked volunteers. Our children’s and preschool volunteers are some of our very best people.

You will check-in here at our preschool welcome desk. A volunteer will be here to help you check-in and find your classroom in our secure preschool wing. You will receive a security sticker to retrieve your child after the service.
