To partner with families in building a biblical foundation for spiritual growth leading to saving faith in Jesus Christ
Children are an important part of First Presbyterian Church. We partner with families to provide nurturing, meaningful, and enjoyable experiences through which each child can learn of God's love.
Sunday School: Sunday School Classes for infants through 5th graders meet at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday morning.
Children join a pastor at the front of the church during the 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. worship services for a sermon and prayer.
K4 and K5 children are dismissed from the 11:15 a.m. worship service following the Doxology. Teachers meet them in the narthex and accompany the children to Thornwell room 107 for a lesson.
