First Christian Church is dedicated to providing an imaginative and vital program for our community’s youngest people. We follow Jesus’s example in his empowerment and love for children. We offer multiple opportunities for your child to grow in God and be embraced in the spirit of Christian love.
Classes meet from 9:40-10:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
Ages 3 and under Our Infant and Toddler Nursery is available in the room next to the office.
Age 4 – Grade 5 Children are invited to join us for “LIVE B.I.G.,” an exciting program which meets on the 3rd floor of the Education Building.
Additionally, we offer:
WORSHIP AND WONDER: Following the Children’s Special Moments in our 10:40 a.m. worship service, children ages 4 through 3rd Grade are invited to Worship and Wonder. This Montessori based model provides a time of worship designed especially for children. Stories of God are told in a way that allows the children to listen and enter into the story. The children are then given time to respond to those stories in a variety of ways: through art projects, reading, working with the stories, or simply by being quiet and spending time talking to God. The Worship and Wonder room is located on the second floor of the Education Building.
Finally, we extend these experiences:
Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF) and Young Disciples: A combined group of elementary aged youth (grades 4-5 and K-3, respectively), these youth explore the essential basics to Christian faith: love, friendship, prayer, art and mission. Time is given to journeying through the Christian story and learning the meaning of this story to the life of each member. Programs will resume in the fall.
