Welcome to First Kids

At First Church, we strive to intentionally invest in the Next Generation, which is why we place a high value on ministering to our elementary kids and families! We work hard to create ministry environments your kids will love coming to so that coming to church will be an awesome experience for your whole family. We can not wait to partner with you and develop authentic faith in the life of your child!

Weekend Experience In Person

Each weekend at First Kids your child will get to experience exciting worship, engaging teaching, and compelling community through our breakout groups! Every element of our First Kids Weekend Services is designed to help your child learn to worship God in community. They will dive into God’s Word, be challenged, and have a great time!

Sundays at 9:30 & 11AM

Weekend Experience At Home

In  this unique season of navigating implications from COVID-19, we at First Years really want to give you resources to provide an online, at home First Years experience!  

One way is to Download this Parent Cue App (in either Android or Apple), register, choose First Church, and enter in your kid’s info!  The app will automatically populate with all the age appropriate videos and content you will need for an at-home First Years experience.

We also will be putting out our Weekend Experience Sundays so you can experience First Years at home during the week with your family.

Midweek Services

First Kids Midweek is our small group program for kids! Each Wednesday night your child will meet together with a group of their peers and learn what it means to be part of a biblical community. Together they will study God’s Word, pray, and hold each other accountable! Our Midweek program is also supported with live teaching that will help your child experience the Bible and homework that will challenge them to grow in their faith!

Wednesday at 6:15PM

For parents

Common questions asked by visiting families:

Who will care for my child?

First Kids leaders have been strategically placed by an application and background check process. Our leaders have a heart for children and are excited about investing in the next generation.

How do I check my child in/out?

Right inside First Church’s front entrance, you will see First Time Children’s Check-In. One of the team members will greet you, guide you through the registration process, and personally escort you to our First Kids Drop-Off Room. We are committed to making your child’s time with us safe and meaningful.
  • Upon check-in, your child is given a numbered security nametag. This nametag is placed on the front of your child’s shirt. This matches a security tag you are given. If we need to call you out of service, your security number will be displayed in the Worship Auditorium. 
  • At pick up time, present your child’s matching security tag to the leader at the classroom door. For safety reasons, we ask that you drop off and pick up your child outside the door of the classroom.

What should my child expect on Sunday morning?

At First Kids Weekend your child will experience exciting worship, engaging teaching, and compelling community through our breakout groups! Every element of First Kids Weekend is designed to help your child worship God in community. They will dive into God’s Word, be challenged, and have a great time!
