Discipleship Opportunities for Children GRACE Place is our Sunday morning discipleship opportunity for children and youth in preschool through 8th grade. Our children and youth will be joining the whole church family as we explore BELIEVE. This school year, we will be equipping the whole church, from our littlest ones to the most seasoned members, to believe the core truths of the Bible and to become more like Jesus every day. Grounded in Scripture, BELIEVE is a unique discipleship experience that helps Christians of all ages become more like Jesus in their beliefs, actions, and character. BELIEVE illuminates the core beliefs of the Christian faith and will help us think, act, and be more like Christ. Lively, active lessons will be based on Scripture, Bible themes, and memory verses. Join us for GRACE Place on Sundays at 11 am.
The Spring session of Wednesday Night Live for kids in kindergarten to 4th grade will begin on February 1, and continues every Wednesday through March 15 from 6 - 8 pm in Room E6. Each week will include interactive Bible stories, games, crafts, fun, and fellowship geared specifically for our elementary-age kids.
FIREPROOF (5th and 6th grade) meets 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 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.
