Children's Ministry

We are all children of God. Here at FPC we aim to show our children what

God’s love and grace looks like. We encourage our young friends to grow in their

faith and bring others to Jesus.  Our KidMin staff, volunteers, and families empower

our children to imitate Christ and live out the great commission.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.” Matthew 28:19

Sunday School

We offer Sunday school during the contemporary worship service at 9:00 a.m.  Children begin their time at church in the service with their families. After a worship song, we pray for our kids, and then dismiss them to Children’s Church.

We provide fun, engaging classes for Preschool (and potty trained) through 5th grade, that include lessons, crafts, laughter and love. Our curriculums are biblically based and are designed to reach children of all ages.

king's Kids

King’s Kids is our mid-week program for preschool and elementary ages. This is a chance for our kids to have fellowship with members of their church family while they learn about Jesus and grow closer to Him.

On Wednesday evenings our kids will experience exciting worship, a healthy dinner, fun games, engaging crafts, and a relevant Bible lesson and application. This fall we will be using a great curriculum called the Jesus League.

FPC's correction policy for kids

Positive Reinforcement will be used when behavior

issues occur. If there are reoccurring difficulties,

they will be discussed with the parent/guardian.

When a child misbehaves:

First give the child a loving, but firm warning.

If misbehavior continues, maybe the child needs a break. We have an overseer on Sunday mornings who can give short breaks.

Reoccurring difficulties will be discussed with parent/guardian and Chidlren’s Ministry staff member. A child can be removed at this point to spend time outside of the classroom. 

In any case of misbehavior, it is important that children know that we love them because they are God’s children. Our love and support is unconditional at FPC!

Mission

Our Mission and Vision

It is our mission to nurture our children and youth into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through our programs on Sunday morning, Wednesday evening, and special events throughout the year. We have a team of loving staff and volunteers who partner with parents/guardians to train, teach, and support children so that they know they are loved, valued, and special to God as Jesus Christ modeled.
