Children & Youth

"Let the children come to me, and do not stop them," Jesus said.  "The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these little ones."  Then Jesus took the children in his arms and blessed them." 
~Mark 10:14, 16

Sunday School, 9:00-9:45 am

During the summer months, elementary students meet together to explore bible stories and faith, through hands-on activities and discussion. Teens are invited to take part in a multigenerational class titled "Faith Questions" which meets in Fellowship Hall.

Nursery

Children of all ages are always welcome in FCC worship services.  However, if you prefer, we also offer nursery care on the lower level for infants through preschool age children starting at 8:45am. We also offer a "Kids Corner" at the back of the sanctuary and a lounge.  Both are stocked with books, toys and coloring supplies for busy hands to allow children and their parents to worship with the congregation as one.

Youth Group

  • Youth Group includes children and youth from 3rd grade through High School. They meet monthly (outside of Sunday School) for devotionals, activities, games, social outtings, service projects and retreats.
