Follow Along at Home

For the past several years, First Baptist Church has held a summer STEAM and gardening program on Tuesday evenings. From the end of June through July, we will be introducing various STEAM projects that kids can do with us from home.


Materials for our projects will be provided throughout the summer. There may be some projects that require some ingenuity, but any additional items should be readily available at home. Once you sign up, we will send you an email with instructions on how you can pick up your Learning Lab project kits each week.

Instruction Videos

Each week will include an instructional video on YouTube and Facebook on how to put your project together and what you can learn from it. Follow along and learn!

Live Sharing

On Tuesday evenings at 7 PM, children are invited to join Pastor Jesse and Nicole on Zoom to show what they learned that week and how their project came out. We will explore what the projects teach us about the world we live in and how God interacts with us.

Sign Up Today!

Our Summer Learning Lab program will take place from the end of June through the month of July. By signing up, we will provide the materials you need to follow along with each week’s STEAM lesson. Don’t worry if you missed a week, you can sign up at any time throughout the summer and we will start providing materials for your child to learn and grow.
