Back-to-School Blast

As the summer draws to a close, we hold a Back-to-School Blast event to help parents and students prepare for the upcoming school year at First Baptist Nashville. Kids can learn about their new Bible Study teachers, rooms, and curriculum. We also have a time of “blessing of the backpacks” in which our church family gathers together to pray over the backpacks – and the school years – of our students.
