Special Friends Ministry

FBC’s Special Friends Ministry is dedicated to assisting every special needs individual from preschool to adults, and their families in having the opportunity to be a part of a church body and experience life-changing relationships. We seek to create an atmosphere in which families feel welcome and comfortable to worship and fellowship with others in a meaningful way. Please join us soon for one of our family centered events. You Belong Here!

We at First Baptist Church Covington love you and your family. As we embark on another exciting year, we look forward to opportunities in which you can get to know us and we can minister and get to know you and your family! Here’s what’s happening in Special Friends Ministry this year…..Come and join us. It’s going to be fun!

Sunday Mornings

We love Sundays at FBC! We invite your whole family to join us for a wonderful time of worship, making new friends, and studying God’s word. We have worked very hard to provide a place for children that will meet all of their unique and special needs. From playrooms designed with your child in mind, to our swing room, to our newly purchased iPads and “comfy” chairs. We strive for this environment to provide your child with a fantastic Sunday morning experience! Our goal each week is for your child to leave this place with a nugget of God’s word and memories of a special time with our loving teachers and volunteers.
