Infant Nursery
 We welcome you and your child to the First Church nursery! Our mission is to provide a safe and loving environment for your child while you participate in adult education classes and worship services. The First Church nursery is staffed by experienced individuals who are knowledgeable of nursery procedures and emergency plans. They provide loving care and delight in getting to know both children and parents of our church. You can easily identify staff and helpers by their royal blue aprons.

Toddler Nursery Children learn simple Bible stories, songs, and have time for explorative play.

Children & Worship Children are invited to a time of Biblical story telling and worship in our Children’s Worship Centers. This approach to worship allows children to participate in the stories of God, to actually experience God’s presence, and carry the meaning of these stories into their own lives. Children should be preschool ready and potty trained to attend this class.

Faith Travelers Elementary-aged children start in worship with their families and then are dismissed for Faith Travelers. Children will experience foundational Biblical stories by using a variety of learning styles. Each week children and their shepherd will rotate into a new learning center where they will explore the Bible through story-telling, puppetry, drama, video, music, art, cooking, handicrafts or games. 

One Room Schoolhouse Children attend 11:00 am worship with their families before being dismissed to the One Room Schoolhouse following Moments with the Children. This is a traditional classroom setting where children learn Bible stories accompanied by appropriate activities and crafts. 

 
Children in grades 3 - 6 are invited to be active participants in our 11:00 am worship service in the sanctuary. A special children’s page and worship bags with appropriate materials are provided to help children focus on meaningful moments within the service.

Choirs Children and youth will express their faith through age appropriate vocal music. The choirs will sing in our worship services several times throughout the school year.

Kids’ Club We meet on Sunday evenings from 5 – 7pm for faith, friendships, and fun! Always remember to dress to play and maybe get a little messy.  Bring $2 for dinner. We love it when you bring friends!
