Children's Ministry at FPC

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 for GRACE Place on Sundays at 11 am, beginning on September 9, 2018.

Summer brings many other discipleship opportunities for children.

Wacky Wednesdays are for children in kindergarten to 4th grade.  Wacky Wednesdays will take place on June 6, 13, 27; July 11, 25; and August 1 from 1:30-4 pm.  This summer, our Wacky Wednesday series is "How to Ruin Your Life:  Learning to Avoid Foolish Mistakes."  Kids will learn from the stories of Adam and Eve, Joseph, King Solomon, Jacob and Esau, and the nation of Israel.  They will discover how each of these Bible characters faced tough situations and how some made wise decisions and some made foolish decisions.  Each lesson will teach the children some of the foolish decisions to avoid - based on the lives of these characters.

SHIPWRECKED Vacation Bible School is July 16-20 (5:15-8:30 pm)   REGISTRATION IS CLOSED AND WE ARE FULL.


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.
