Our Mission Statement
Kids Ministry at First Pres partners with families to walk with children on their faith journey through 5th grade. We welcome them into a safe, loving environment where their faith is nurtured through songs, stories, play, active learning experiences and games. Our goal is to set God at work in their lives as we invite all generations into a growing life with Jesus Christ.

Sunday School

During the 2021-22 Sunday School year, we are using Cokesbury’s Celebrate Wonder curriculum which honors the spiritual life of children by engaging them in open-ended exploration and inquiry of the Bible. Through experiential activities, spiritual practices, and reflection, Celebrate Wonder serves as a Biblical guide to help children make meaning for their lives. It seeks to deepen children’s faith formation and to create a safe space to ask big questions and claim their spiritual identity as children of God. Each week in Sunday School, students will share a Bible lesson through storytelling, crafts and games as they strengthen their faith together. Face masks are required during indoor Sunday School. Sunday school classes make use of our beautiful outdoor grounds as much as possible.

Celebrate Wonder with us!

SHINE! Midweek Program – 
Coming this fall

- SHINE! is a midweek program for Kindergarten–8th grade
- The program meets on Wednesdays from 5:00-6:30 p.m. 
- Everyone will share a simple dinner and fellowship together

Kindergarten–5th graders will enjoy a time of games and activities, then end the evening in stations that will differ each week, from science to art and mission to cooking, as they experience a Bible story in many different ways. Learning how much God loves them!

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). Just as Jesus is light to us, we will go forth and SHINE his light to the rest of the world.
