Discipleship Opportunities for Children

GRACE Place - our Sunday morning discipleship opportunity for children and youth in preschool through 8th grade does not meet during the summer months.  Join us again for GRACE Place on Sundays at 11 am, beginning on September 8, 2019. 
Summer brings many other discipleship opportunities for children.
 
Kids in kindergarten through 4th grade are invited to Wacky Wednesdays.  Come join us for exciting stories, games, snacks, and lots of fun! This summer, we’ll be doing Science with Jesus. Each week, the kids will get to participate in or watch some fun experiments that remind them of some of the amazing miracles Jesus did. These miracles show us how awesome God is and why Jesus is our Savior. Wacky Wednesdays are June 5, 12, and 26 and July 3, 10, 24 and 31 from 1:30 - 4 pm in the Multi-Purpose Room.
 
“Beyond the Gold” Sports Camp is June 17 – 21, 9 am to 12:15 pm, at Columbine Park. This camp offers coaching and instruction in soccer, flag football, and cheerleading for children ages 6 - 12 and basketball and volleyball for children ages 8 – 12.  Based on 1 Corinthians 9:24 – 25, “Beyond the Gold” Sports Camp offers quality sports instruction, as well as Biblical teaching that campers can apply to sports and competition.  The registration fee is $60 for the first child in a family and $30 for each additional child. All campers will receive a camp T-shirt. Click the link above to print a registration form.

FAITH Lab Vacation Bible School is July 15 – 19 (5:15-8:30 pm) for kids in kindergarten through 6th grade. Kids will explore the world of science – from building bridges to dropping eggs – using Christ-focused experiments and activities to tell the story of salvation.  Each day kids will hear the word of God during two science devotionals, play science games, and learn through hands-on science experiments. At end the week, on Saturday, July 20, our Children’s Ministry team, in partnership with our Outreach Team, will be hosting Josh Denhart and The Amazing Chemistry Show and the Family Science Experience from 10 am to 1 pm. It’s going to be an amazing week you won’t want to miss! Click the link above to register.
FIREPROOF is our ministry specifically for 5th and 6th graders and their friends. FIREPROOF does not meet regularly in the summer. But keep an eye on this page and our Facebook page for special activities all summer long!


Angels and Saints
This is our nursery program on Sunday mornings during the school year for children through age 5 during our 9:30 and 11:00 am services. The Nursery is staffed by a paid nursery assistant and volunteers who look forward to the time they get to spend with our church's children. There is also a preschool Sunday School for children ages 3-5 years old during the 11:00 am Traditional Service.

Safeguarding Your Children
First Presbyterian Church desires to be a safe place for all children who attend. We believe proactive steps can be taken to promote the safety of children and the volunteers who work with them. Therefore, we have adopted a prevention program to reduce the possibility of child abuse occuring in this church family.
