Families with Children

First Church extends a special welcome for families and has a growing population of families with young children who are new to the area.

Child Care.

The professionally-staffed Nursery for infants and toddlers is available  year-round on  Sunday mornings.  A  Quiet Room in the  back of the sanctuary has comfortable rockers for parents of infants.

Church School

Sunday School is offered  for children and youth  from pre-school through high school during the regular public school year.  Classes are from 9:15-10:15am.

Children’s Word.

During Worship, children are encouraged to come forward for a special  Children’s Word with the Pastor or sometimes with older youth. Children through 5th grade may then go upstairs to the Sunshine Room,  a professionally-staffed play area, for the remainder of the worship service.

Family-Friendly Events

Fun and fellowship events for families as well as for the entire congregation are scheduled throughout the year.  Families also participate together in various mission and outreach activities.

Safe Sanctuary.

First Church is certified as a United Methodist “Safe Sanctuary” congregation.
