It is our great privilege and joy to minister the gospel of Jesus Christ to the families of First Presbyterian Church and to families outside of the church. We strive to assist, train and equip parents as they raise their children to know and love the Lord Jesus. Additionally, we provide dedicated staffing and purposeful programming that ministers to the specific needs of children at every age and stage.
We are committed to the highest level of protection possible for the children placed in our care on Sundays and at all church events. For this reason, we require parents of newborns through fifth grade children to check in their children before they go to the nursery, Sunday School, Catechism, Children’s Church or any other children’s activity. Several kiosks are available in the Children’s Check-in Lobby. The process is quick and easy, and volunteers are available if you need assistance checking in. If you will be visiting with us for the first time, we encourage you to arrive about 10 minutes early to check your children in for the first time. View a video about Children’s Check-in
