FPC Christmas Pageant Sunday, December 3, 8:45am
This year we will have our Christmas Pageant on Sunday morning in the sanctuary during the Open Door worship hour. Everyone is welcome to attend this child-friendly service in which we tell the story of Jesus’ birth with scripture, songs, and drama. There will be a reception in the Fellowship Hall following the pageant.
If you’d like to take part in the pageant, there will be one rehearsal, with pizza lunch, on Saturday, December 2, at 11:30 am. All ages may participate and help out—sign up here!
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.
Meets during the school year
Our children’s Sunday School classes use an engaging curriculum that takes children through the Bible with fun lessons that help them become part of the story. Each class will be using curriculum that is specifically designed for their age, so that they can encounter God through storytelling, activities, and discussions.

A Note From Our Wee Sing and Praise Kids Choir Directors
We are so excited for a new year of music in Sunday School! Every child, Age 4 through Grade 2, who comes to Sunday School (9:45-10:45) will learn more about the lessons Jesus teaches us through songs and games. There is no sign up or extra activity to add to your weekly calendar!
The dates we will sing in Sunday Services are posted outside the Sunday School rooms and we will be in touch through this newsletter throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you and your family at church on Sundays.
