GIFT (Growing In Faith Together)

Oct. 11- Oct. 25

Yearning for connection with others and God in the midst of these unique times? Join the children's ministry team Sundays this fall at 11am on the 10th Street lawn. All ages are welcome. Children must attend with a parent. Each household will sit physically distanced. We will explore the Bible through the lens of color, big emotions, timeless wisdom and art guided prayer. This series is designed for all ages who may be feeling distractible, impatient or tech weary. Small children will be encouraged to bring toys from home within a color theme each week. No registration necessary. Bring your own blanket or chairs.

What we are about

Here at First, we are passionate about helping our kids to know and experience God's love. We offer a variety of programming to help customize a worship and learning experience for each child. We strive to nurture each child's relationship with God and with one another!


For our youngest children, we would like every child to learn that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. These truths come alive through Bible stories, hands-on activities, crafts and worship through music. 

1st-5th Grade

For our elementary aged kids we want every child to embrace three basic truths that Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52: I need to make the WISE choice, I can TRUST God no matter what, and I should TREAT others the way I want to be treated. These teachings are conveyed through Bible lessons, purposeful games/activities and worship through music.
