Nursery (Newborn through Preschool)- Sandy Baumgartner, Director
A well-equipped play area which is also well-staffed by trained and background checked individuals who love your children. While in the care of nurturing staff and after security check-in, the children are led through a Bible story time followed by crafts they can maneuver and get excited about which compliments the story. Snacks, diaper checks, and bathroom use are also needs cared for by this compassionate staff.
Sundays from 9:15am (Connect Groups-small group studies for adults); 10:30am (worship service)
KIDS Connection – Michelle Spurlock, Director
All elementary school aged KIDS begin worship with families in the sanctuary, then they are dismissed during the “Moments of Hospitality” portion of the service to KIDS Connection…a place for a kid to be a kid and learn Bible stories through drama, activities, games, and crafts. Ms. Michelle teaches the stories using sign language (she is a professional ASL interpreter). To engage families, the KIDS receive a “take away” informing them of upcoming family events at First Church as well as some word games/brain teaser activities/puzzles. All staff are trained and background checked.
Sundays when dismissed from worship service; Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30pm (Connect Group-small group studies for youth).
Youth (Jr. and Sr. High Students) – Angela and Javier Pennant, Directors
Teens EAT…so when we gather Wednesdays, we begin with FOOD!!! Then our teens head to the #GodSquad area designed by the teens to hang together, have a relevant devotion about topics teens deal with (influence, words, peer pressure, money, pain, suicide, sex, you name it)… and about how God , as busy as He is, cares about all the stuff teens are going through…ALL of it! They learn ways to cope, deal with, adjust to, compromise in a righteous way….how to use what the Word is saying in really tough situations. Angela recently received her Master’s Degree in Counseling with a minor in Youth Ministry from Liberty University. All staff are trained and background checked.
Wednesdays from 7-8:30pm, Sundays from 9:30-10:15am.
