Children & Youth

When a child is baptized in our church, the congregation promises in the name of the whole Church of Jesus Christ to help the parents undertake the Christian nurture of their child. One of the primary ways we do that is through our Sunday morning educational program. From their very earliest days being loved and cared for by our nursery staff until they go out from this place to live out Christ’s purpose for their life, First Presbyterian seeks to develop and foster faith in our children and youth that will equip them for a lifetime of service to God. We find this to be a joyful and fun filled adventure as we journey together. Join us Sundays at 9:40, everyone is welcome!

Nursery
Our nursery is located in the Ministry Center room 1.24 and is available for early worship (8:25am), during the Sunday school hour, and during the 10:55am worship service. Our loving staff will take excellent care of your child and make sure their first experience of the church is a great one.

Children’s Classes
We have a preschool Sunday school class for 3 and 4 year olds that uses felt boards to involve our youngest students in learning the Bible stories.

We have two elementary classes – K-1st & 2nd-5th grade – which use the Holy Moly Curriculum by Sparkhouse. This curriculum goes through the various stories in the Bible.  All children’s classes meet in the Ministry Center.

Middle & High School
Our middle & high school class is using PCUSA curriculum titled I Know My Bible. It is designed to help our youth know what and where the major Bible stories are and see how the Bible story flows.  The class meets in the Lighthouse on Sunday mornings 9:40-10:40am.
