Faith Formation for Children & Youth

Children are a vital part of our community. Just as Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me,” we at First Church strive to welcome the youngest into our midst in worship, fellowship, formation, and service. In addition to multigenerational worship, we offer specific programs and supervision for children of all ages during the morning worship hour when we are gathered in person.

regathering season 2021

In early fall 2021, during the Delta surge of the coronavirus, we offered First Worship on the Lawn, a 30-minute informal worship experience for all ages under the yellowwood tree. We also offered an All-Church-School activity for part of our 11:00 a.m. Hybrid Worship service.

As we move into October, we will continue to provide an All-Church-School activity during Hybrid Worship, and we plan to offer a few more outdoor worship experiences, including on All Saints Sunday, November 7. Based on the results of our Fall Regathering Survey, Church School classes will be postponed until January 2022.

Details of children & youth programming are shared via our weekly “News for First Church Families” e-communication. If you want to receive this email every Thursday afternoon, contact Sarah Higginbotham to get on the list.
