Free childcare is available during worship (9:30 - 11:15) for those with young children. The nursery is located in the Preschool (level 1R) in the Red Balloon Room near the Preschool office. During the summer, when worship is in Fellowship Hall, the nursery is in the Hospitality Center, across the hall from Fellowship Hall. Save time by filling out the information form below before you come. Childcare is also offered during many of our special events and services.
Sunday School is an important part of First Presbyterian’s ministry. During the school year, classes are separated by age and meet in designated classrooms from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. All Sunday School students ages 3 through 8th grade come to worship in the Sanctuary at 10am and leave for class after the Children's Message.
During this hour, dedicated volunteer teachers instruct children and their peers. They read, discuss, and apply Bible stories to their lives. Many interactive activities are incorporated into each curriculum, guaranteeing a fun and lively class each Sunday. By beginning class in the Sanctuary at the 10 am service, children experience worship and prayer together as a family of faith before separating into their individual classrooms.
Each Spring we set aside time to teach our Third Graders about the Sacraments of our faith and what it means to share in the Lord’s Supper. This special five-week course takes place during Sunday School in the Spring, and ends with Third Grade Communion Sunday.
In the summer, children leave after the Children's Message for "Children's Church," a time of stories and crafts.
To register: 2022-2023 Sunday School Registration; to volunteer as a teacher or for additional information, contact our director of Christian education, Gabrielle Heimerling.
