Rachel Pyles – Director of Children’s Ministries

Let me take this time to introduce myself. My name is Rachel Pyles and I am the Director of Children’s Ministries here at The First Baptist Church of Frederick. My husband and I came to FBC in the fall of 2001 and immediately felt welcome and at home. Very soon after, we made the decision to join along with our three children. Since then I have had the opportunity to serve in some of the children’s ministries. And when the Director’s position became available I was excited to serve and be a part of the children’s ministry.


My educational background is in Early Childhood Development and Education.  And in the last 25 years I’ve taught preschool as well as serving children’s ministries such as Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, Preschool Choir, Missions, and of course nursery volunteer.  After moving to our location on Bower’s Road I began and also direct the Little Lights Child Development Center. This program runs Monday through Friday from 7am to 7pm. We care for children from infant to before and after school.


The First Baptist Church of Frederick’s children’s ministry is one of the most exciting ministries in the church and I feel very lucky and privileged to be a part of it. We also have a wonderful team of teachers and assistants on Sunday mornings as well as during the week who have made a commitment to serve and truly are the backbone of this ministry. Our goal is to provide a healthy and safe environment for our children as well as setting the foundation for their spiritual walk. After all, we all start with “baby steps”.


Thank you for visiting our web-site and we look forward to welcoming you into our First Family. If you have any questions or would like information about the children’s ministry you can contact me
