Our youngest. Our future.

First Congregational’s programs for children emphasize God’s love for all, the ways that following Jesus means caring for each other and our world, and the special part every person plays in God’s work. Kids have the opportunity to explore Bible stories and discuss their significance in today’s world in a meaningful, fun way.
Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it…

Luke 18:17

Nursery and Toddlers

The Nursery (birth to 14 months) and Toddler Room (15 months to 3 years) are located off the North lobby during the worship hour. They can be picked up in their respective rooms immediately after church by their parents.

Beginner’s Church

This program for 3 and 4 year olds provides a transition from nursery care to Kids’ Church. The class runs the full length of the worship service, so parents drop off and pick up students as they would for the nursery or toddler room. During worship, however, these children will participate in their own worship experience, built around Montessori principles. Children will learn to recognize and interact with central Bible stories, as well as symbols and language of faith they will later encounter in the main worship service. This class launches in Spring, 2017.

Kids’ Church

Children (K through Grade 5) attend worship until after Children’s Time, when they are dismissed to Kids’ Church. In the Kids’ Chapel, children give thanks to God for events in their own lives and hear the day’s Bible story. In the activity room, students move at their own pace through monthly-themed activity stations where they can engage with and begin to live out their faith. Kids return to the sanctuary after the Offering and parents can connect with them in the back pews after worship.

Prayer Partners

Kids praying for you, you praying for kids!  Notes are exchanged and relationships made. It’s a win-win.

Middle and High School

Those students in grades 6-12 will remain in worship. But are encouraged to join our Youth Group events throughout the week.
