Welcome to our Children’s Ministry


But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of Heaven belongs.” -Matthew 19:14

Children are a blessing from God and are a very important part of the First Presbyterian Church family. We welcome all children to join us for Sunday School and Children’s Church as well as the many other activities held throughout the year. We hope that our ministry will help children grow their knowledge of the Bible, strengthen their faith in God, and fully embrace God’s Grace.

If you have any questions about the Children’s Ministry, the information provided on this page, or the pages they link to, contact Natalie Bishop.
