Grow in faith with 1st Kids

But Jesus called the children to him and said, 

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."

Luke 18:16


Through the teaching of the Biblical principles, we help children develop a closer relationship with Christ. 

We partner with parents and caregivers to help children learn and apply Christian values in their daily lives. 




At this time we are asking people to wear a mask in the 1st Kids Ministry area.  

We are asking this simply because our children do not yet have the opportunity to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. 


    • Nursery services are provided for children ages 3-years-old and under.  
    • If you plan on bringing a child to the nursery on Sunday mornings we ask that you reserve a spot for them in advance. 
    • The Nursery is located in the 1st Kids Area on the lower level of the church building.
    • Nursery services are offered on Sunday mornings from 9:00 am until 11:30 am.  (Starting June 6th, the nursery will open at 8:00 am.)
    • 1st Kids Sunday School is open to children ages 4 through 6th grade.
    • Please bring your children to the 1st Kid's sign-in desk and they will be taken to their classrooms.
    • Sunday School is from 9:15 am until 10:20 am.  
    • We are currently using the Celebrate Wonder curriculum from Cokesbury Publishing.  Elements of the curriculum are available online.  To learn more or to gain access to the online lessons and videos please click here


  • During the 10:30 church service, there will be a second opportunity for children to gather.  Children 4 years old through second grade, will be escorted from the service to the children’s Gathering room (signed as the Nursery) to learn and fellowship while remaining socially distant .  Of course, this opportunity is a choice as children may choose to remain with their parent or other guardian in worship.  Parents will need to come following the service to pick up their child in the 1st Kids area. 

    • Programming will be available from 6:45 pm to 8:00 pm
    • Available for children ages 4-years through 6th grade for those who are attending the Celebrate Recovery Worship Service
    • Children will attend the first 15 minutes of the worship service and then the children will be taken to the 1st Kids area.
