Parents Night Out

It’s not just fun for parents, it’s fun for the kids too! Any child ages birth through 6th grade is welcome.  Child care and activities are scheduled from 6 – 10 p.m. on multiple Friday nights throughout the year. Reservations are required by noon on Thursday prior to the event. You can register online or use the registration envelopes available in the Nursery Suite. Place your payment in the envelope and return it to the Children’s Ministry Office.

The cost is $15 for one child, $25 for two children or a $30 family max.

Family Week

Each spring, a week is set aside in our church calendar to celebrate our families. Events are planned for the whole family to enjoy while growing closer through family worship, parent seminars, a family mission project, and more!

Family Mission Trip

Each summer, families from First Baptist Nashville travel as a group for several days to serve at a mission opportunity within drivable distance of Middle Tennessee. Recently, families have traveled to East Tennessee to serve with Hale Community Ministries in Elizabethton.
