Childhood is an exciting, vibrant time at First Presbyterian Church! We believe that the church should be a nurturing place where children experience the love of God. Children learn what an important part of the faith community they are by taking part in Bible study, worship, fellowship, music and art, and recreation.
Please note that all adult volunteers who participate in our children's ministries are trained on FPC's Abuse Prevention System.
Children are always welcome in all worship services at FPC. Beginning Sunday, September 10 at the 9 a.m. worship service in the Great Hall, families with young children will now also have the opportunity to visit the Prayground. This new area, located toward the back of the Great Hall, is designed for children ages 2-4 to quietly engage in age-appropriate activities while experiencing worship along with their families.
The area, which will be marked by a colorful sign and rug, offers child-size tables and chairs with quiet activities such as coloring, puzzles, books, soft toys, etc. to do with parents that go along with Bible stories.
The Prayground is only one of a few options for parents worshiping with young children, and you are encouraged to do what feels right for your family! A nursery is provided for young children, staffed by professional childcare workers and church volunteers, from 8:30 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. The nursery is located on the 2nd floor in the north wing of the campus (Rooms 201, 203, 205, 206). Children 5 - 3rd grade are invited to take a worship bag (available from a greeter or usher) with worship-related activities to do while sitting with their parents.
