Children Relying on God’s Everlasting Word

The Children’s Ministry of First Baptist Hartselle ministers to children from K to 4th grade through CREW, Y.A.C.H.T. Club is 5th & 6th, R.A.’s, G.A.’s and Upward Basketball/Cheerleading. Our purpose is to connect children to God and others. We desire to help children know God and to help them develop a relationship with Him in Christ. We teach lessons that challenge children and give specific actions to take to engage God. We ensure a healthy and safe environment for the development of meaningful relationships with teachers and other children as they grow closer to God. We have a weekly worship experience for preschool and elementary children as well. As a balanced ministry, we strive to serve and love God by serving and loving children.


UPWARD basketball & cheerleading is for children ages 5 years old through 8th grade. Each week children correctly learn how to play basketball & cheerleading the fun and God honoring way. During their UPWARD time, they also engage memorizing Bible verses & in life-changing activities that teach them to know, love and follow Christ. Of course, we always have a lot of fun through games and getting to know one another. UPWARD is held between the months of November thru February. Practices are during the weekday afternoons while the Games are played every Saturday Morning in the Family Life Center.
