WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE returns on August 28! On Wednesday nights during the school year, we offer this fun time for kids ages 3 – 5th grade that includes a quick supper (donations accepted), music & games, crafts, and a quick Bible lesson. It’s kind of like a mini-VBS!

We also have a place for kids on Sunday mornings at FBC. Sunday school for all ages is at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. We provide childcare during both our 8:30 service and our 11:00 service, and we also offer the option of children’s church for ages 4 – 3rd grade during the 11:00 sermon.

Finally, we are hoping to start a van ministry this year. If your family or your kids might be interested in getting a ride to church on the van, please let us know by calling 512-898-2529.

FBC Thorndale would love the chance to get to know you and your kids better this school year! Hope to see you soon.
