First Pres Kids

Sundays | 9:15 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. (Resumes August 21)

Designed for kids PreK4-5th Grade, First Pres Kids is a dynamic discipleship ministry designed to engage our children in worship, Word, and prayer on Sunday mornings. Children will attend the first part of the worship service with their parents, and then exit the Sanctuary together to have a time of children's worship and a Bible lesson. PreK3 children and younger can go to the nursery for age-appropriate lessons and activities. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Debbie Gainer, our Director of Children’s Ministries, with any questions.

Children's Choir

Wednesdays | 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. (Resumes August 24)

The Children’s Choir Ministry is committed to helping children learn to praise and pray in new and exciting ways! Each week we praise the Lord through our choir songs, and we talk about the importance of memorizing Scripture through music. The children engage in singing and dancing to the newest praise and worship songs as well as our favorite old hymns and choruses. We emphasize the importance of each child developing a relationship with the Lord. We often divide up into small groups with the choir leaders praying for and with the children. The children are excited to share their experiences of answers to prayer! During the school year, we sing monthly in the 11:00 worship service, and we present two Bible story musicals a year. We truly feel that the Lord is moving in a mighty way through the lives of our children. Through worship, Word, and prayer, we are all being drawn into a deeper relationship with the Lord.

Sunday Children's Message

Sundays | 9:15 a.m. or 11:00 a.m.

Just like Christ called all children to Himself, we spend time each Sunday morning during our 9:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services teaching children to draw near to God. The children’s message will focus on that day’s Bible lesson at First Pres Kids. We're always looking for members of our congregation to help deliver these messages, so if you'd like to help, contact or sign-up below.
