Children’s Ministries

Your resource for discovering some of the many ways your children can learn more about Jesus and get involved in the life of First Church. 



Our Children’s Ministry continues to grow and stays active. Our Director of Children’s Ministry, Sara Joines, keeps our kids busy. Our Kids Alive program has a lot to offer such as Children’s Church during both our 9-and 11 a.m. worship services on Sunday mornings as well as Sunday School at 10 a.m., and Sunday evening programming for children ages three year through fifth grade. Our children also have various opportunities to participate in throughout the year such as our annual Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, a Christmas play, and missions. We would love to have to join us.
