Children

Our goal is for children to come to know God’s presence in their lives and to be assured that they are cherished and cared for as beloved children of God.

Nursery Care

Nursery care is available during morning and evening worship for infants through three year olds. Morning nursery hours are from 8:45am – 112:00pm and evening nursery hours are from 4:45pm – 6:15pm. Registration is not required. For questions, email 

Children's Faith Formation

Children’s Ministries serves disciples ages 4 years through 5th grade with weekly faith formation opportunities during morning and evening worship services. There are two age group offerings: 4-years-old through 2nd grade, and 3rd grade through 5th grade. Faith formation is taught by Children’s Ministry pastors and staff, supported by faithful volunteers. No registration is required.

Curriculum

This fall, children's ministry will be using the PC(USA)'s curriculum, "Follow Me: Biblical Practices for Faithful Living." This curriculum is based on practices Jesus did and taught us to do as faithful followers. It examines where these practices are found in the Bible and how they have been used in Christian faith then and now.

Our littlest disciples will use "Play-n-Worship: Play-Along Stories for Preschoolers." They'll toss bouncy balls in the air to make rain for Noah's Ark. They'll clang building blocks together to make thunder and learn how God calms a storm. They'll hug and hold baby dolls and hear about God's great care for them!

Wonder Hour

Children ages 3 years old through 5th grade are encouraged to attend Wonder Hour, a dedicated time for faith formation. Age groups are divided into three classes: ages 3 & 4 in room 208; ages 5 years through 2nd grade in room 207; and 3rd, 4th, & 5th grades in room 209.

Wonderful Wednesdays

Join us for Wonderful Wednesdays: a six-week program designed to hone our children’s talents and interest in the creative and performing arts. This program for 4-year-olds through 5th grade will culminate in our children sharing their talents in worship on November 12. Registration for this program is required, and our $25 fee will cover art supplies, a t-shirt, and snacks and fellowship. For registration and more information, please visit fpcrichmond.org/music, or contact Cindy Jennings.
