First Church Kids

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.

First Church Kids on Wednesday Nights

On Wednesday nights our kids meet for a time of laughter, creativity and learning focused on Jesus. We divide into small groups based on grade level. Our ministry serves Pre-School all the way up to 5th grade. 


We start at 5:30 p.m. with a family dinner. At 6:00 children head into their small groups for about an hour. 


First Church Kids on Wednesday nights typically follows the school calendar and meets when public school is in session. We are currently working on a safe re-opening schedule.

Worship

We love having kids attend worship with their families. Kids are encouraged to follow along with our worship. We also provide worship bags that include books, coloring pages, and more for younger children (Pre-School to 3rd grade) to help enjoy worship.


On Sunday mornings at 10:30 worship, Pastor Doug takes a moment to greet and engage with our kids 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
