Where Do I Go When I Arrive?

We gather for Worship at 11 AM. This service takes place in our Fellowship Hall (while repairs from Hurricane Ida take place in our Worship Center), which is the building with the steep “A-frame” roof at 1313 Clay St. 

If you’re joining us for ConnectGroups at 9:30 AM (offered for all ages), head to our education building located at 1313 Clay St. as well. If you are unsure where to go at any point, you can ask for directions from one of our on-site volunteers when you arrive.  

What if I Have Kids?

During ConnectGroups, we have great activities and Bible studies for children of all ages. All of our volunteers have undergone extensive screening and have received training to keep your child as safe as possible.

We also offer care during the Worship Service for those in PreK-4 and younger. For any children joining you in the Worship Service, we’ll have activity and coloring pages available at the door.

 If you have any other questions about what steps we’re taking to keep your children safe and to make their experience enjoyable, please let us know.

What Should I Expect During the Worship Gathering?

Our Worship Gathering is relaxed but very intentional. We like to say that the sermon begins with the first note of the first song, and it ends with the last “Amen.” Everything we do is grounded in the Bible, so even our music and prayers reflect biblical themes and exalt Jesus Christ. We sing old and new songs accompanied by guitars, piano, and other instruments, and we see the sermon as the central part of our worship experience.

What if I Don't Have a Bible?

If you don’t have a Bible, or if you have one in an old kind of English that is hard to understand, talk to any staff member and ask for a Bible. We are happy to give you a brand new Bible. This is our gift to you.

What if I'd Like More Info or Have More Questions?

If you’re able to visit on a Sunday morning, stop by the Welcome Center. Our volunteers would love to talk with you and get you more information. Our staff would also love to meet you! They are usually easy to find before or after the service.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call us at 504-466-5381, email us at, or use the contact form on this page. We would love to connect with you.

Preschool Ministry

We welcome your child to the Preschool Ministry of First Baptist Kenner. Our desire is to help you and your family have a happy Christian experience through the many opportunities available at First Baptist Church of Kenner. Please partner with us as we do our best to ensure a safe, nurturing, and comfortable learning environment for your child.

The Preschool Ministry seeks to provide children from birth through kindergarten with the foundations for building character, love, and a positive response to Jesus Christ and His church.

We know that, as parents, you need to be sure that your child is getting the best possible care during your time of Bible study and worship. We are committed to providing trained leaders, keeping a clean and safe environment, and maintaining a balanced curriculum designed to meet the needs of preschoolers.

Thank you for allowing us the privilege of teaching your child about Jesus and His love. We will do our best to let each little one know they are loved and that they are a unique gift of God. We pray that each child grows up with this testimony – “From infancy you have known the Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ.” (2 Timothy 3:15)

Our children’s ministry exists to share Christ with children, to connect each child with other Christians, to help them grow in their faith, and to challenge them to grow through serving others and honoring God with their lives.

Our Children’s Ministry’s theme is “Rooted” because we want our children to be rooted in Christ and to put their full trust in Him.

Student Ministry

ALIVE, our student ministry, exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ among 7-12th graders. Our church’s mission is to make Christ-followers who are transformed by His truth and sent out in His name. Our ministry hopes to fulfill this mission by:

Making disciples of Christ through personal relationships in order to lead them into a relationship with Jesus, seeing them transformed into mature Christians through Bible study and worship, and helping them discover their God-given gifts for the purpose of being sent out.

The activities of our ministry are designed to intentionally see this mission realized. We have a lot of opportunities for students to connect to one another and to Christ:

– Sunday morning Bible Study and worship
– Small groups on Monday Nights (PULSE) and
– Large groups on Wednesday ALIVE gatherings.
– Laser tag, Nerf wars, and other fun hangouts!
– NOBA Disciple Now Weekend
– Student Life Camp
– Youth Evangelism Conference (Y.E.C.)
