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.

January-June 2022

In-Person Church School Classes are underway!

It was wonderful to see our three classes for preK-7th graders up and running on February 13. All children are welcome to join in-person classes at any point in the coming months, as you feel comfortable returning to the church building on Sundays.

Feb 13 – Classes
