FCC is solely committed to helping children know, grow, and love Christ with all their hearts in a safe, healthy and enriching environment for infants to preteens. During our Sunday 10:45 am worship service,
children have the opportunity to participate in Children's Chat, bringing worship to their level. Children who are age appropriate are then dismissed to their own worship time at Children Worship & Wonder or Children's Church.
We seek to sow and cultivate seeds of faith in our children leading them toward an everlasting relationship with Jesus Christ.
Build solid faith foundations in our children in a safe environment upon which Jesus Christ may impart a desire for outreach and service through word, action and understanding.
We love, care and teach our children that every child is adored in the eyes of God and in the First Christian Church family.
"Train up a child in the way he should go." Proverbs 22:6
Our volunteers and leaders have cleared security checks and committed
in teaching children about the God who loves them.
CHILDREN WORSHIP & WONDER
An exciting way of approaching faith formation with children through specially designed worship is the best way to describe Children Worship & Wonder. In Children Worship & Wonder children have the opportunity to hear Bible stories and form responses out of their own life experiences. They learn the meaning of church traditions and participate in worship practices (Young Children and Worship, Introduction). Children Worship & Wonder is offered as our children’s church time with trained leaders for children 3 years old through 2nd Grade. Children attend the regular worship service with parents and after the children's chat time, they will leave with a Greeter and go to their own Worship Center for the Children Worship & Wonder experience. Your kids will love it! (Currently not meeting)
The FCC Krystal Bells group consists of young children aged 3-7. They practice bells and sing during the Children Worship and Wonder time each Sunday. Nancy and David Robertson lead this group of our younger children. The Krystal Bells are played during the church service several times a year. The children sing for special occasions, such as Christmas or Easter, during the service.
Our Kids Club is a fun and interactive program for kids, kindergarten through 5th grade. It helps them to learn who Jesus is and grow spiritually as they build meaningful relationships with other kids and their leaders. They meet immediately after church on Sundays and do various activities and mission-oriented projects. Join kids for a lock-in, help deliver fruit bags to our shut-ins, or hop on the church van for a fun adventure while sharing the love of Christ.
All children, birth through 5th grade, and their parents or grandparents meet the third Tuesday of each month for pizza, games, songs, and great conversations. During the late spring, summer, and early fall, God's Family is held at Millennium Park. The pizza is always provided no matter the location. All you need to do is show up!
