Jesus said: “Let the children come to me.”
At First Church, we extend this same welcome. Our Christian Education program begins with our Nursery and Pre-K (ages 0-5 years) program and continues with Church School for grades K-3 and 4-5; Pre-Confirmation and Church Services for grades 6-8; and Confirmation classes for grades 8+. Our children are invited to become members of First Church after completing Confirmation classes. We also have additional youth programs for 6-8th grade and 9-12th grade students.
If you would like to register your child, please fill out the registration form linked below (and read our First Church Safe Conduct Policies). Please contact our Family Ministries Director, Marilyn Paul-Lewis with any questions: email@example.com. We look forward to serving your youth!
