"People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”  And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them."

Mark 10:13-16

A typical Sunday morning for First Kids

The youngests members of our church family meet every Sunday morning at 9:45am in their beautiful room in the Boyd Building right next door to many of our Sunday school classes. After you get checked in, you can attend the Adult Sunday classes worry-free while your children enjoy free time with games and crafts and books from 9:45am until 11:00am.

First Kids join the adult congregation in the sanctuary for the first part of our Sunday Worship Service. They stay until their special Children's Message and then go back to the kids room for their own lesson, and guided craft and activities until 12:15pm. Each session combines the concepts


  • Grow Together

  • Proclaim the Word

  • Serve with Love

  • Worship


Snacks and treasure chest surprises are included!
