Children are a significant part of the ministries at First Family Church. Our church is vibrant and growing with young families, and because we believe that children are a gift from God, we strive to provide families with strong, Biblical education in all our church ministries. Our vision for the children’s ministry is to train and encourage children as they grow in their knowledge of the gospel and create a foundation in Christ.
As the next generation of leaders and worshippers in the church, we want to assist parents and family members by providing a biblical education, a caring and positive environment, and an example of service to our children in order to point their lives to Christ. We encourage the teachers to build relationships with the children in their classes and get to know them and their families.
It is our hope and prayer that as we teach and point children to Jesus Christ, we help them to be lifelong followers of Him through celebration, growth, and service, so they in turn will teach others.
We also want to encourage friendships among the children in our church. It is important for us to laugh and play together. Our younger children have opportunities to play together on a weekly basis in their classrooms. Our elementary age children also have opportunities on Sunday morning and Wednesday nights to get to know each other better. We also plan activities throughout the year that give kids and families opportunities to build relationships.
Safety and Security
If you are new to our church, please visit the What to Expect page for general information about our church and how you can feel at home from the start! We believe that security and safety are paramount for having a successful children’s ministry. We do regular background checks on all church staff, elders, deacons, and all volunteers who work with minors. Prior to volunteering in any of our rooms, our helpers will undergo a background check and v isit with one of our children’s ministry staff.
In addition to this, many of our key leaders in our children’s, youth, and adult ministries are CPR and First Aid certified, and we carefully observe allergy policies.
Finally, we have a state of the art check-in system that ensures that only approved parents or guardians can pick up children after services. You can rest assured that your children will be safe as they learn more about God and develop their faith.
Volunteering and Serving
In order to help the ministry to our children flourish and succeed, we rely on parents, youth and other church members to regularly assist in the children’s ministry. By serving in our ministry, you will be serving the Lord, impacting the lives of our families, investing in the future, and being a great example to the children and other adults at First Family Church.
