t’s fun! It’s creative! It’s engaging! It’s First Kids First, our spiritual enrichment program for all children that emphasizes spiritual growth through music, arts & crafts, Bible stories and more. Lead by dynamic teachers, kids explore life-lessons together, actively participate in worship, and gain a good spiritual foundation for their developing lives.
Infants and toddlers through age 4 meet in the Infant and Toddler Room by the side playground with Ms. Maria, Ms. Emily, and Ms. Glenda; Kindergarten through 5th grade kids will be dismissed from the 11:00 am service at the end of announcements for a Bible story, craft, and play in Shatto Chapel and the side playground with Ms. Julianne, Ms. Sammi, Mr. Ian, and Mr. TJ.
Currently on break for the summer. We will resume the program on First Kids First kickoff Sunday, September 13th.
Available to 4th grade-8th grade is the acolyte program. This is a very important ministry as the acolytes symbolically bring light into the worship service during the processional hymn. Each week, one or two Acolytes will be scheduled and should arrive 15 minutes before the 11:00 service to put on robes and receive any special instructions.
To sign up for Acolyte training, please contact Ms. Julianne at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming your child to First Kids First!
