Children

Sunday School

_dsc0978First Church offers Sunday School classes for children ages 3 through 5th grade on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. The children’s department uses the DEEP BLUE curriculum published by the United Methodist Publishing House. Over a three-year period, the major stories of the Bible are taught, and it is during this period each week that the church focuses its efforts on sharing biblical knowledge, heritage, values, and the love of God with the children. The children’s Sunday School classes are divided according to age and school grade level. As the children encounter a Bible story each week, Sunday School helps them to understand scripture and apply it to their lives.

Confirmation

Starting in sixth grade, students participate in confirmation classes during the weekly Sunday School time. The confirmation curriculum articulates the key beliefs of the Christian faith speaking from the United Methodist tradition. It is designed to help young people develop a deeper knowledge of the God who loves them and who also calls them to respond.

Nursery

First Church provides nurseries for pre-kindergarten children for all worship services and for many of the events sponsored by the church. The nursery is staffed by three childcare professionals with assistance of volunteers.
