Children's Ministries

Children’s Ministries supports parents and families as they raise their children in the faith. We love to share with children how much God loves them and offer small, relational classes for children, pre-school through 5th grade.  We offer many activities throughout the year to encourage growth & fellowship for all children and families here at FPC.  As parents, we often have questions, some of your questions can be answered here…

Sunday Mornings for Children

Update (as of January 1, 2022): Our Nursery is closed temporarily due to staff shortages. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we invite you to either bring your little ones into the Sanctuary or play around with them in Gathering Area, just outside the Sanctuary, where you will be able to hear and participate in the worship service.

Children of all ages are welcome in worship with us on Sunday mornings! We love hearing little voices and baby cries! We have spaces for children both in and outside the Sanctuary.

Every Sunday we provide a Children's Moment during the worship service and there are children's buckets (containing coloring sheets & utensils) that kids can take into worship with them.

We plan to begin offering in-person Children's Church in February 2022! This program allows for children age 4 thru 5th grade to leave the Sanctuary during the sermon for an age-appropriate lesson, craft, and snack!

Virtual Sunday School Videos: Spring 2022

In the interest of making Sunday School accessible to families who feel comfortable attending worship in-person, as well as those who do not, Children's Ministry will be offering a short video devotional for families beginning in early February.

Each video will have an accompanying craft or activity for families to do together. A major goal for these Family Sunday School videos is to provide your family a space and time each week for faith-enriching discussion and activity.
