Children's Ministries

FirstKIDS because Kids Are First

First Church offers a variety of opportunities for children to experience spiritual growth in their journey with Christ, through education, fellowship, music, events, and service throughout the year.

We have Sunday School every Sunday, during the school year and during the summer.  Come as you are, and join a class at 9:45am.  We have 4 Sunday School classes for PreK (3-5 years old), Kinder/1st, 2nd/3rd grade, and 4th/5th grade with seasoned teachers.  In class, we learn about Jesus and study the Bible, and occasionally we throw in a party!

Our Grace program is made up of children in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade. Grace meets monthly between Labor Day and Memorial Day, usually on one Saturday evening a month, with a few exceptions.  All elementary school children are welcome - church membership is not a requirement!  Grace does several mission projects throughout the year.

Vacation Bible School is our popular one-week program in mid-July that is an immersive event geared to teach children more about God in a fun way.  Our next VBS is July 13-17, 2020.  Registration for students is open June 17!

Special Events throughout the year:

  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Vacation Bible School
  • Back to School
  • Trunk or Treat
