First Church extends a special welcome for families and has a growing population of families with young children who are new to the area.
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.
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.
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.
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.
First Church is certified as a United Methodist “Safe Sanctuary” congregation.
