Preparing for Easter
A Guide to the Season of Lent for You and Your Family
Our new booklet, Preparing for Easter – A Guide to the Season of Lent, is designed to help you prepare your heart for Easter, not just as an individual, but as a family, as a community, and ultimately, as a church body. Each week highlights a particular practice to orient our hearts toward Christ and help us intentionally make room for His Spirit to work in us.Download
At First Baptist Church Keller, we believe that a personal walk with Jesus is the most important foundation for a God-honoring family.
The Bible teaches that family is God’s idea and that He has clear instruction on His design and plans for the family. We are here to help you with biblical resources for success in your family life, including searching for a spouse, marriage, parenting, and grand-parenting among others. We equip parents to help their children grow into disciples for Christ. Make Jesus a priority as you seek to be faithful in your family life. Love, grace, and community within the family grow from a strong relationship with Him.
- Teaching – Jesus commands the church to teach people of all nations about Him to the glory of God the Father. Our preaching, Bible study classes, discipleship courses, conferences, and seminars are grounded in biblical truth.
- Training – We believe in living out God’s instruction and encouraging people to practice the things learned in His Word. Our workshops, retreats, training forums, and support groups help you grow in biblical knowledge and apply that wisdom to real life.
- Tools – We provide practical tools, such as worship guides, devotionals, recommended books, and discussion starters, to equip families in the pursuit of a God-honoring home life.
- Counseling – Using the Bible as our central text and model, we offer biblical counseling to our members and guests to help families navigate through various life stages and circumstances. We want to point people to Christ, not a program. Feel free to contact any of our pastors directly to set a time to meet. Also, please do not hesitate to let me know how I can pray for, help, or support your family, for the glory of God.
We grow in wisdom when we learn and practice the principles set forth in the Word of God.

Family worship is an essential element of God-glorifying family life, and the health of the Body of Christ is directly related to the health of the family unit. We will be sharing tools for successful family worship in the near future. First Baptist Church Keller Keller is here to encourage and equip your family to grow in worship.
We have put together several resources for parents with young children. Our parent resource are cards designed to equip you for important conversations with your children (or grandchildren). Topics include talking with your child about salvation, baptism, the Lord’s Supper, and family worship time.
These cards are available in our church resource areas or are downloadable and printable via this link.
Orphan Care Ministry
The Orphan Care Ministry of FBC Keller seeks to encourage, accommodate, and resource the faithful obedience of God’s Word to care for orphans (James 1:27) within our local faith family and in our community at large.
Foster Parents’ Night Out
First Baptist Church Keller Orphan Care Ministry periodically hosts our foster children with engaging activities, lessons, and fun for the evening allowing their foster parents a night off. This is a free event and is open to infants through 4th-grade children. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Foster Parents’ Night Out at First Baptist Church Keller is a faith-based program that provides respite care to foster families. Our church hosts Foster Parents’ Night Out (FPNO) so you can have a night off, while trained volunteers care for your foster, adopted, and biological children.
For Foster Parents
We periodically provide this opportunity for a scheduled break so you can enjoy time to yourselves while we care for your children. Being a foster parent is a rewarding yet difficult responsibility that requires physical and emotional stamina. FPNO is here so you can enjoy a much-deserved night out while trained volunteers provide your children with fun activities in a safe environment.
We provide children the opportunity to build healthy relationships with others in their community who care for them in a safe, nurturing environment.
Our church volunteers teach children to bond over shared experiences at FPNO, strengthening the Christian communities in which we serve. We want your children to know we value spending time with them.
