Children

Helping Children Love and Follow Jesus

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14 (NIV)

My name is Pam Armstrong, and I'm the Director of Children's Ministry at FPC. I've been enthralled with the magic of children for as long as I can remember. Love, laughter, music, art, and the chaos that five kids (all within seven years) can create filled my childhood. We were not wealthy, but we were rich with the knowledge that we were loved by our parents, by each other, and by God. 

At FPC, children are a valued part of our church family. Our ministry partners (our teachers) are committed to helping children love and follow Jesus.  We want to help them learn about Jesus Christ and develop a personal relationship with Him so that they can live a life that reflects their faith and commitment to Him. 

Our mission is to provide a loving and safe environment for all children so that parents are confident their children are receiving Christ-centered teaching and care.

Check below for our Sunday morning schedule. Your children are welcome here!

 

Sunday School

Sunday school is offered at the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services. Our children will join us for the first part of worship and then leave for Sunday school. Our overall theme this year will be the Lorax—Kids Who Care! Within this umbrella will be a curriculum that makes the Bible stories and Christ’s teachings relevant to our children and our world today.

Please fill in the 2017–2018 Registration Form HERE.

 

MX (Mid-Week eXperience)

Wednesdays, September 20–November 8, from 6:00–7:00 p.m. Activities for children—games, crafts, homework help, books, various group-time activities, and themes. (We realize that kids need time that is not “sit and listen” oriented. This time will be supervised and have several choice-based activities.)

 

Church Family Events (Intergenerational)

Monthly (October—May) there will be an intergenerational event designed to encourage our kiddos to get to know their church grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles and cousins!  Watch for more info in the coming weeks!

 

Kid’s Missions

Throughout the year, there will be opportunities for your children to help someone else, inside and outside the FPC walls. Children are often our greatest ministers.

 

Children's Sacred Chorus

The Children's Sacred Chorus is an outreach initiative to the children of our church and the community. It's open to all children in 2nd–5th grades. Get more information here.
