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.

Program year 2023-2024:

  1. Godly Play, Middler, and Bible 101 classes will begin on Regathering Sunday, September 10, and meet on most middle Sundays of the month.
  2. Confirmation Class will begin with an Orientation Meeting for students and parents on Sunday, September 17, at 12:30 p.m. The first class for students will take place on Sunday, September 24, at 9:30 a.m.
  3. Youth Group will gather periodically with teen groups from neighboring churches. Youth Group leaders Ahmaad Edmund and Becky Moyer will be reaching out with details.
