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)

Children are a valued and important 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.

Summer Sunday School 

Kids age 4–5th grade are invited to Playground Church each Sunday throughout the summer. Families will join together for the first part of the service in the sanctuary. Children will be dismissed to Playground Church during the “Passing of the Peace.” Weather permitting, kids will gather on the front lawn and playground at FPC to play games, learn science, and craft projects—all centered around the love of Christ in their lives.

 

Sunday School

Beginning September 10
Sunday School is offered at the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services. Our children will worship with us for the first part of worship and then leave for Sunday School. Our over all theme this year will be the Lorax… Kids Who Care! Within this umbrella will be curriculum that makes the Bible stories and Christ’s teachings relevant to our kids and our world today.

 

MX (Mid-Week eXperience)

Beginning September 20
Wednesdays, September 20–November 8, from 6:00–7:00 p.m. Activities for children—games, crafts, home work help, books, various group-time activities, and themes. (We realize that your children 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.
