Children, Youth, and FamilyFirst Pres offers a wide range of programs, including church school, fellowship opportunities, seasonal programs and mission opportunities for our children, youth, and families. Children are always welcome to worship with their families. Upcoming Events
Childcare for children ages 5 and under is offered from 8:30-12:30 every Sunday. We have a professional, trained caregiver who has gone through a criminal background check prior to serving in any area dealing with children. You’ll find the nursery on the first level of the church off the lobby (closest to the Berry Street entrance), just a few steps away from the Sanctuary.
Children are an active and vital part of our faith community. We believe that children are not only the church of the future; they are the church of the present, too. Sunday School for children is every Sunday. For the first 10 minutes or so of the 11:00 English service, children worship with their parents. They are then invited to Sunday School following the Time with Young Disciples. Sunday School ends about 12:00.
Middle and high school youth group is the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 12:00-2:00. Youth also enjoy off-site activities and mission projects. Confirmation is offered for 7th and 8th graders in the Fall and late Winter.
We offer seasonal fun events for families such as a ski trip, campout, Trunk or Treat and Advent Festival. About once a quarter, parents are invited to have lunch at a nearby restaurant while youth are at youth group. Childcare for younger children is also offered at this time.
