Children participate in every aspect of church life at First Church! From Christian education classes on Wednesday night, to worshiping with the whole family of God on Sunday mornings, we include children in worship, in service, and in faith formation. Check out the links for Wednesday Family Night to learn more about our Christian Education program for all ages.
On most Sundays, children are encouraged to remain in worship throughout the service, and “busy bags” are available as you enter the sanctuary. Sometimes, we understand, a fussy child might need a more child-oriented space than the formal sanctuary. A Cry Room is available behind the balcony, and a staffed Nursery for 0-3 year-olds is right across the hallway from the sanctuary on the main level.
On the second Sunday of each month, children move downstairs immediately after the children’s message, to participate in some hands-on learning designed just for them. We call this Kids Connect! Children return to the worship space near the end of the worship service, to rejoin their parents.
More than anything, we want children at First Church to know that God loves them, and we love them, too!
