First Baptist Shreveport Chinese Mission

2023 Fall Chinese school sponsored by First Baptist Shreveport Chinese Mission will resume on January 21.


The Chinese School is a part of FBC’s ministries. We want to provide an opportunity for children in our community to learn Chinese and explore Chinese cultures. We welcome parents and children to visit our Chinese church services, Bible Studies, love feasts, and holiday celebrations to experience the different aspects of Chinese life in Shreveport.

Chinese School Class Rules:

Our teachers work hard to create a safe and nurturing learning environment for each child. We will contact parents/guardians in all matters pertaining to the inappropriate behavior of students.
First Baptist Church Shreveport provides us the classrooms. We need to keep them clean and return all furniture, equipment and other church properties to where they are before we move them. All the students are not allowed to play the pianos inside classrooms without permission.
Drop-off and Pick-up: Doors for Drop-Off open at 1:50 pm. Parents need to walk in with kids, sign them in, and leave a phone number for emergy-contact purposes. Doors for Pick-Up open at 4:05 pm. Parents need to come in with the Claim Check to sign out their kids. Parents can contact teachers at any time for class assignments or homework if the student is absent. The tuition is non-refundable once the class starts.

We encourage parents to join the group message of their kids’ class. It could be GroupMe, Wechat, or E-mail. Our school and teachers will send out important information and notice through these social media. Parents consent and authorize FBS Chinese Mission to use their children’s photographs, video and any other digital media in all its publications.
