First Church Kids

As you lead your child spiritually we are here to help you! Here are some age-appropriate resources for you to have fun, engage and dive deep with your child spiritually.  By Monday morning of each week we will be posting new content.

Here's how it works:

Every week we will be posting videos that are specifically for your kids! There are three different video worship experiences for a Pre-Schooler, Elementary Age (K-3rd grade) and Pre-Teen (4-5th Grade). 


Each video has music your kids can sing and dance along to as well as a message that is geared just for them! 


Along with the videos, we have provided easy-to-use resources for you to lead your child closer to Jesus. In other words, you have just become your child's small group leader! Don't worry, it's super simple. 


To get the Parent Cues, simply click on the PDF by going to "Resources" under each video. You will be led every step of the way by the instructions on each page.


For bonus points, you can download the Parent Cues app from the Apple store or the Google Play store. To download, or to learn more about it, click here.

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 to learn more about Jesus. We have small groups for 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 and have fun learning about Jesus. The night ends at 7:15.


First Church Kids on Wednesday nights will resume in August! See you there!

Weekend Worship

We love having kids attend worship with their families. Kids 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 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
