Children

Infant - 5th Grade. For information on baptism, see Sacraments.

FPC has a vibrant Children's Ministry where kids learn about God and have fun doing it. We would love for your children to join us. For more information, contact Mary Park, Director of Christian Education.

Nursery: Newborns through three year-olds are welcome to attend the nursery from 8:45 am-12:15 pm while their parents attend worship and Sunday School.  The nursery is staffed by four individuals with years of experience in caring for young children and have completed training through our Child and Youth Protection Policy.  The nursery meets in Rooms 105 and 106.

Children’s Worship: Children age 4 through first grade are invited to attend Children’s Worship.  This is offered during both the Open Door and Sanctuary services.  Children attend the beginning of worship with their families and then are invited to exit with our Children’s Ministry staff for their own worship experience where they will engage in the biblical narrative through storytelling and play.  Children can be picked up immediately after worship in Room 206.
