Good News Kidz
At First Presbyterian, we love kids, and we create each week during our Sunday morning worship gathering a special experience for them to help them grow deeper in their knowledge of God’s amazing love.
As worship begins, your children will join you in the pew as we begin our time together as one gathered family. About 15 minutes into the gathering, Pastor Kennedy will invite all the kids to the front for a time around the baptismal font. He’ll share a special message for the day with them followed by a prayer, and they’ll go with their leaders to our Sunday children’s ministry Good News Kidz, a program for children from three years old through elementary
As your children go, you can rest assured that they are in good hands. All of our dedicated volunteer staff have gone through an extensive background check, and have regular training to ensure that your kids are always safe and cared for. And you are welcome to walk across the street to our education facilities with the leaders so that you can get to know them and see exactly where your children will be.
Each week, we use an innovative curriculum that embraces all the various ways in which children learn from hands on activities and games to storytelling to music and drama. Your kids will be engaged each week in fun and interesting ways to help them understand and experience God’s love for them in Jesus.
And for children under 3 years of age, we have a fully staffed nursery, right off the church lobby. And you are welcome to also sit in the church lobby with your kids as it has clear windows and piped in sound so that you can enjoy the worship without worrying about a wandering or talkative child distracting others. And if you want to stay in the nursery with your child, we pipe the service into there as well so that you can care for your child and still be connected to the worship in the sanctuary.
So come out to worship at First Presbyterian! They’ll love it, and you’ll love it too!
