Children

Sharing the love of Jesus with children is the first step in leaving a spiritual legacy for the next generation of Christ followers. Our goal is to provide a high-quality ministry that sets the building blocks for the spiritual formation of elementary age students.

Wednesday Nights

Children's Bible School, a Pre-K to 5th grade ministry - not unlike Vacation Bible School - is held on Wednesday nights during the school year. We start at 5:30 p.m. with a family dinner. At 6:00 children head into their classes (sorted by age) and have fun learning about Jesus. The night ends at 7:15.


Wednesday Night Children's Ministry will resume August 21, 2019! See you there!

Weekend Worship

We love having children attend worship with their families. Children are encouraged to follow along, but we also provide worship bags that include books, coloring pages, and more for them to enjoy.


On Sunday mornings at 10:30 worship, Pastor Doug takes a moment to greet and engage with our children in a 'Children's Moment.' This moment is sweet - just like the candy we give them after the moment.

Children's Choir

Singing together is an ancient tradition of the church and something we still practice today. During the school year our children are invited to learn songs on Wednesday evenings and sing them in worship once a month at the 10:30 gathering.

Acolytes | Candlelighters

All third and fourth graders are invited to become an Acolyte (Candlelighter). Each fall we take these students through a four week class. There they will learn about the Sacraments, Christian symbols, how to assist in worship, and, of course, how to light the candles on Saturdays at 6:15 and on Sundays at 10:30.

The Word | Bibles for Children

At the beginning of each school year we give a new Bible to all Kindergartners and Third Graders. Kindergartners receive an illustrated Bible that helps them begin reading the Bible. Third Graders receive a student Bible that they can use for the rest of their life.


If you would like your child to receive a Bible email us at info@firstchurchnp.com
