Children

Children are especially important in the life and ministry of First Presbyterian, and so we have a number of offerings for children. 

Nursery
We offer a nursery for infants and toddlers during all church-wide programs and worship services.

Worship

We love to welcome children into the full life of worship.  Parents are encouraged to have their children join us in worship.  There is a nursery available for children ages birth through 4 years old. 

Children’s Worship
Ages 4 – 1st Grade, Room 161
Children’s Worship is for children ages 4-1st grade, on Sundays during the 9:00 and 11:00 worship services. The children are dismissed from worship to go to Children’s Worship following the Children’s Sermon each week. Children’s Worship provides an age appropriate setting that focuses on the spiritual formation of each child as a unique individual. Each class session opens with prayer followed by a Bible story based on the sermon and activity.
Bridge to Worship
2nd Graders, Room 163
This class is for our 2nd graders as they transition into participating in full-time worship. We meet at various times throughout the school year. Students learn about all of the components of the worship service including sacraments, church seasons, and more.
2Club 345
Club 345 is designed to build faith in older elementary students with fun and engaging programing and to provide opportunities to build friendships within a Christian context.
