FirstKids Sunday School
Sundays @ 9 am
The preschool and children’s ministry serves as a partnership with parents in the spiritual growth and development of children. We prioritize a safe and loving environment where children can grow in Christ. We offer Sunday School every week for babies through fifth grade. During the school year we offer AWANA on Sunday evenings as well as Music and Missions on Wednesday evenings. During the year we host other activities for kids and families.
At FIRST we know how to do summer right, which is why we’ve got so many great camps and summer programs for kids! Whether you’re into sports, arts, music, or dance, there’s an adventure waiting for you. So go ahead and start exploring the camps below and let’s dive into summer!
