The Fall session of Wednesday Night Live for kids in kindergarten to 4th grade will begin on October 11, and continues every Wednesday through November 15, from 6 – 8 pm, in The Gathering Place. Each week will include interactive Bible stories, games, crafts, fun, and fellowship geared specifically for our elementary age kids.

FIREPROOF (5th and 6th grade) begins on September 6 in Room E3 and continues each Wednesday during the school year. This group is geared specifically to pre-teens and their friends. Each week’s activities feature high energy games, relevant Bible teaching, fun videos, and group discussion.  This group also participates in our FIREPROOF Puppet Ministry. The puppet ministry plans and performs the children’s message for our Children’s Christmas Eve Service.

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.
