Upcoming Events


Hey Families, need a simple, fun activity you can do ANYTIME, OUTSIDE, AT THE CHURCH?

We have setup a Family Scripture Rock Hunt around the church. We have 10 rocks (stepping stones) hidden with scriptures on them to help encourage you during this season. We challenge YOU to come to the church and try to find them all.

Message a picture of your child next to each rock that you find to the First Baptist Joplin or First Kids Facebook page and let us know. For EACH rock photo that you submit, you will be entered into the raffle drawing for BIG prizes. Make sure that you only send rock photos to us. DO NOT POST ANY ROCK PHOTOS ON FACEBOOK. We do not want the location of the rocks to be given away. Finding all ten rocks will earn you an additional entry.

For another additional entry, take a selfie of you & your scavenger hunting team and post it on Facebook with the hashtag #firstkidsrocks. That is up to 12 ENTRIES. Entries are per family, not per kid. Be sure to tag us.

Prizes include:
1. A $100 back to school shopping spree
2. A family dinner delivered to your house from a restaurant of your choice
3. A fire pit with s’more supplies, roasting sticks, a fire log, and some games
4. An outdoor basket with a cooler, lawn chairs, and tumblers
5. A game night basket with a bunch of different family friendly games.


Our Rock Hunt will end at the end of August.
