PreTeen Ministry

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, ROOTED and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
–Colossians 2:6-7

Preteen Ministry at FBC Keller focuses on a firm solid foundation (ROOTED) in the Lord Jesus Christ. We teach and train our students to walk with the Lord and be sound in their faith.

We teach our Students in grades 5 and 6 apart from Children’s Ministry, knowing that during this time they are most inquisitive about their faith, need additional nourishment as they become teenagers, and will face more struggles.

We have some of the greatest lay leaders and volunteers that serve in our various ministries, as well as a great staff that is here to serve you and get connected with your family.

Royal Ambassadors and Girls In Action

Missions Activities – Mission Friends, R.A.s, and G.A.s

Our children’s mission organizations meet during the school year on Wednesday night from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. We have organizations for preschoolers and elementary age boys and girls.

Mission Friends
Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.

Mission Friends is designed for our children who are three years old through kindergarten age. In this program, children learn about different missionaries, their family life, and where they live. A primary focus at this age is an awareness of other cultures and places because Jesus loves all people, even different cultures. They learn to share stories of Jesus at home and with friends.

Royal Ambassadors (R.A.s)
Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.

R.A.s is a missions education program for boys in the first through sixth grade. Our emphasis is to teach these young men how to be Christ-like and how to carry the message of Christ around the world. We do this through stories, videos, scripture memory, Bible study and activities during class times. Each week in the R.A. program, we learn about different missionaries and how God uses them to spread His Word to all corners of the globe. The emphasis is not just on what others are doing but on how we can be “On Mission” as well. R.A.s learn about the saving power of Jesus Christ and that everyone needs to accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior.

We also have special missionary speakers from time to time and the monthly Gym Night is always a hit with these active guys. In addition, the R.A. calendar is packed full of fun events. These events give the boys a chance to do things boys love to do, like race pinewood derby cars and go camping.

Girls in Action (G.A.s)
Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.

G.A.s is for girls in the first through sixth grade. The focus is on learning what a missionary is, the difference between home and foreign missionaries, and what a missionary does. To apply their learning, the girls become involved in mission activities in the home and in our surrounding communities.

Bible Drill

Bible Drill

Vacation Bible School 2018

Identity – VBS

June 4-7
8:45 a.m. – Noon
For students who have finished 5th Grade

Who am I? At the heart of life’s biggest questions, arises this one. To understand our identity, we will explore what the Bible says about God’s character, our sinfulness, Jesus’ sacrifice, and salvation that redeems. Finding our identity in Christ is the solution to life’s biggest challenges.

Survivor – VBS

June 4-7
8:45 a.m. – Noon
For students who have finished 6th Grade

Life is more than survival. It’s meant to be victorious! If Jesus lives in you, if He’s your Savior and Lord, then you’ll survive anything because “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.” We will focus on not merely surviving, but living victoriously through Jesus.
