Welcome to our Children’s Ministry

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 value children and their relationship with God and seek to provide a welcoming and nurturing community where all children can grow spiritually. We use the Godly Play philosophy and curriculum to help guide us as we learn how to better support children and their spiritual journey. “Godly Play is a creative and imaginative approach to Christian nurture. It is about understanding how each of the stories of God’s people connects with the child’s own experience and relationship with God. Godly Play respects the innate spirituality of children and encourages curiosity and imagination in experiencing the mystery and joy of God.” (Godly Play Foundation)

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. 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, Director of Children’s Ministries.
