We Love Kids!
“When you receive the childlike on my account, it's the same as receiving me." Matthew 18:2-5 (The Message)
Children are involved in worship at FPC. Children sing! Children pray! Children listen and celebrate the stories of our faith! We offer a variety of opportunities for children to be involved and learn about God's love. Be a kid at FPC!
At the 8:45 service, children bring forward the bread and cup during the Great Entry for Communion. This is an interactive way for them to learn about worship! At both services, children join a pastor on the front steps to hear a special message, just for them!
And if sitting through worship is still difficult, we offer Godly Play, a child-focused worship service where kids worship God by seeing the Bible story and pondering wonders. Children even lead worship once a year on Children's Sabbath on a Sunday in October!
Sunday School for all Kids
Our Sunday School hour allows children to experience worship and still have a dedicated time for Christian growth and learning. We have separate classes for Preschool (ages 3-5), FirstKids (Kinder and 1st), KidZone (K-3rd grade) and BeTween (4th and 5th grade). Your kids will experience the Bible through creative storytelling, art, science, community service and energizing games.
Recognizing Children's Achievements
FPC supports the faith development of children and allows the congregation to celebrate with the growing child. Receive a first Bible, take a class with mom and dad to learn about baptism and communion, become a leader in worship by being an acolyte, and learn to read scripture. Children grow in faith at FPC.
Not only do we have these great opportunities for children, but we offer resources for parents too! Check out our Mom’s Group and Parenting classes!
And… join the whole community in our multi-generational events including one of the best Vacation Bible School weeks in town and our annual Trunk or Treat Celebration in October.
