Children & Teens

Nothing is more important than nurturing our children and teens and passing on to them our values and the great stories of the Bible.

Through the year we have all sorts of special events such as summer camp, the Christmas program, playdates in the park, and hiking trips. Children and teens also participate in the many intergenerational events and ministries of the church such as the All Church Retreat, Homecoming Picnic, and Thanksgiving Dinner. On this page you can learn more about our regular, weekly programs.

Children & Teens

With playfulness and caring, our nursery workers lay the groundwork for the lifelong spiritual journeys of our children.

Childcare is available on Sundays in the Nursery from 9:00 to 11:45 a.m. However, your child is always welcome to stay in worship with you; we actually enjoy the babble of babies.


KidsOn Sunday mornings, our kids join us for the start of worship, and following the Conversation with the Children they are accompanied to our fun and vibrant third floor classrooms for a small worship service of their own, followed by age-appropriate lessons featuring stories, music, drama, videos, games, and more. Parents and family members are welcome to join their children anytime. FIRSTKids ends at 11:40 am and is geared towards PreK-6th graders.


Children & TeensTeenagers are full of questions as they begin to critically examine faith and apply it to their lives. We try to be guides and partners in their individual journeys. FIRSTYouth, for those in 6th-12th grades, meets weekly in the Fall for dinner and activities from 5:30-7 at Church.  Check out our fun schedule of events below!  For more details, contact Lizzie Patterson, or check our church Facebook page as we get closer to each event!
