Children's Ministry

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,

for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14


First Pres loves children! We love tiny feet shuffling happily and little hands reaching out curiously. We adore sweet voices asking questions and giggling uncontrollably. Join us as we joyfully minister to our children, reaping glorious benefits from them in the process.

Got questions or ideas? Contact us!

Here at First Pres, our goal is for our children to love the Lord and to experience God's love through the love of our people, playing together, and hearing about God and Jesus and all the wonderful stories they gave us in the Bible. 

We equip and empower our children to learn to pray in public, find hymns in the hymnbook and scriptures in the Bible, serve in love, and live joyfully knowing God is always with us.



Join us throughout the year for multiple special events. We have a Fall Festival, advent festivities, a live nativity, musical programs, Lenten prayer partners, an Easter egg hunt, summer camps, summer intern fun, VBS, and so much more.


Join us Sunday mornings from 10:00 – 10:45. 
 K3 – 5th grade enjoy a Bible story and then time for play in one of our interactive spaces: art, library, drama, and theatre.
Be sure to check out our opportunities for mom and dad and  siblings, too.


Join us on Wednesdays from 5:15 – 7:00 p. m. for SHinE (Seeking Him in Everything).
Children enjoy recreation, dinner, Bible and music.
Dinners are only $5 a night for children ($10 for adults).
We have opportunities for mom and dad and older siblings, too.

More Information and Resources

We seek to accomplish this vision through:

  • Relationship: Our FPC family seeks to exemplify God’s love. We strive to develop and maintain genuine relationships, so that we can successfully establish and nurture compassionate and devoted connection among our church family. We strive to better equip ourselves to live and love faithfully. We want to continually grow and engage in our faith journey. FPC seeks to foster an atmosphere of intergenerational connection where we love no matter what, accept that we all have faults, respect differences, encourage and support each other, build each other up, guide and teach one another, and speak truth in love.

  • Responsibility: FPC seeks to discern God's will for program facets by mindful of having a safe place to gather; seeking wise counsel and prayerful discernment in curriculum and program offerings; faithful accountability in finances and in stewardship of time, talents and resources; teamwork with all components of our church to provide united fellowship, encouragement and support; outreach via grass roots efforts and word of mouth witnessing that is faithful and purposeful in extending the reach of God's arms; and through volunteers on whom we rely and for whom we are so grateful.
