About First Kids

1st–5th Grade



First Kids Ministry serves 1st-5th graders and their families. We are a Gospel Transforming, Disciple Making, and Family Centered kids ministry


Our mission is to reach children with the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ; disciple them to conversion and on to becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ; and to equip, encourage, and empower families of 1st–5th graders.

We believe that…

  1. Only Jesus offers true transformation and hope. Therefore, everything we do is for the purpose of seeing boys and girls come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord.
  2. Discipleship before and after conversion is essential for the successful Christian walk. Boys and girls must learn to understand and practice spiritual habits (disciplines) and boldly share and defend their faith.
  3. Parents are the primary disciplers of their children. First Kids has the privilege of partnering with families in discipling kids.
