Return to First Friends & First Kids

Register for Life Bible Study

First Friends and First Kids are back with in-person programming, and we are excited to have your child back on campus. To ensure adequate teachers and space, children and preschoolers must pre-register each week for Life Bible Study on Sundays. Click below to register and to learn more about what we've done to prepare you and your children to return.


Preschool (Babies–PreK)

The First Friends Ministry recognizes that the preschool years are filled with astounding growth and rapid development. We also recognize that this development was created by God. We know that children between birth and six years learn over half of all they will learn in life during these formative years. This is a critical time of foundation building for all that will follow.

Learning from the Bible

Every time young children come to our church, they are taught from the Bible. The smallest babies hear the comforting words, “Jesus loves you.” Older twos begin to hear simplified Bible stories as they eat a snack. Older Pre-Ks and Kindergartners hear complete Bible stories and related verses in group time. We believe that we have great opportunities to use Bible songs, verses, stories, pictures and related activities with young children to make Bible learning fun and exciting.

Children (K–5th Grade)

The First Kids Ministry serves kindergarten through fifth graders and their parents. Our mission is to reach children, teach children, and equip children to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ our King and Savior. Our mission is lived out through our strategic values. Our values are strategic in that they are specifically focused with the purpose of becoming our identity. We value…

  1. Parents as the primary disciplers of their children. Our role is secondary and viewed as a partnership.
  2. Children having a relationship with Jesus that enables them to make wise choices according to scripture.
  3. The role and importance of children being confident in prayer, worship, missions, and sharing the Good News with their friends.

Raise up the next generation to know and love Christ.


First Friends and First Kids are coming back to in-person programming beginning September 27, 2020.
