Children (Infant-4th)

Children’s Ministries at First Church is dedicated to growing spiritually healthy families by partnering with parents. Together we provide experiences in worship, service, fellowship and studying the Bible, so all children can learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

Children’s Ministry Covid-19 Response & Weekly Schedule
The Children’s Ministry team is connecting with our families and their children multiple times a week through our Sunday Children’s Sermon with Dr. Rick, interactive Sunday school lessons on Zoom and Facebook, and a weekly Lectionary Lesson with Ms. Lisa! Our grade levels have enjoyed Zoom calls to connect with their peers, including our weekly 4th Grade Chilltime and bi-weekly devotionals for our 3rd Graders. Starting on May 11th, our Children’s Ministry is inviting all our families to come together for the Jesus Storybook Bible Challenge, to read the Jesus Storybook Bible in just 44 days! The team also continues to check in with our families with weekly calls, texts, and postcards.
