Our high-energy, Bible-focused FIRST KIDS Ministry includes preschoolers, children, and our Weekday School.

Due to safety protocols related to COVID-19, we currently offer Sunday morning and Wednesday evening classes for preschoolers ages two and up and hope soon to offer opportunities for all preschoolers from babies up. All of our volunteers are background-checked, and your child's safety is our top priority. DOWNLOAD OUR MINISTRY PLAN FOR COVID-19

What to Know About Your First Visit

On your first visit, please stop by the FIRST KIDS desk. We'll meet you and your family, get your child checked in and assigned a security tag, and one of our background-checked volunteers will lead you and your child to his or her classroom. For now, we are offering classes Sundays at 11 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6:15 p.m. for preschoolers ages two up to kindergarten and KIDS Church for children in 1st up to 6th grades.
