First Church is a great place for kids to experience and learn God’s love.   A variety of programs and activities grab kids’ interests and get them involved in what it means to live their faith.

Children’s Sunday School:

Grades pre k-5th at 9:00 a.m.
 
We currently use the Deep Blue Kids curriculum by Cokesbury.

The Deep Blue Mission:
Reaching, empowering, and equipping children, and those who care for them, with grace-based resources that help them on the journey.

Deep Blue Kids will…
Be with God
Love God and neighbor
Understand themselves as children of God
Explore faith and the Bible

All ages gather together for an opening video then split into more specific age level groups for a weekly journey through the Bible.

 
 

Children’s Church:

Children’s Church is available for 4 and 5 year olds. These lessons will follow the lectionary. This means children will be hearing the same lesson as their parents just in a child friendly manner.
 

GIG-Growing in Grace:

Wednesday nights at 6:10 p.m.

During the school year, the children meet at 6:10 for Growing in Grace. This time is a rotation model in which children participate in choir, Bible lesson, and an activity related to the lesson.  Children age 3 years through fifth grade are invited to attend.  Nursery is provided as well as adult Bible studies.

This semester, the children will study the Beatitudes.  The Beatitudes are blessings stated by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount.  (Matthew 5:1-12)

 

The children will also participate in a mission project each week.
