Welcome to First Kids Ministry!

Our kids are both the greatest treasure and greatest responsibility that we have here on earth! This is why our top concern is to provide a safe, welcoming, and fun environment for kids to learn about the love of Jesus. Our mission and promise to you as parents is:

Together we help kids discover & experience who God is & what it

means to be a part of His World!

Our kids area is fitted with the latest in safety technoledgy and is staffed by our amazing First Kids Team. All of our Team Members must pass a multi-level background check and are trained in how to share the love and truth of God on an age appropriate level while having a ton of fun.

We look forward to serving you and your family!

Minister to Children & Families

Family FOcused

Our strategy for discipling kids is to be co-champions with parents in reaching their children for Christ. 

For us that strategy looks like this:

The Gospel + Deuteronomy 6 = Missional Family Legacies

The life changing power of the Gospel + God's call for parents to be the primary disciplers of their children = Families changed by God to share the truth and love of Jesus for generations to come.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 - "These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."

Romans 1:16 - "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes..."

Weekly Kids Activities

Large Group (Pre-K - 5th grade) 

During our Large Group time your children will enjoy engaging worship, active games, and a Bible lesson. 


Small Groups (Pre-K - 5th Grade) 

Our Small Groups are designed to be the perfect place for your children to grow in their relationships with both God and other believers their age. Our study goal for these groups is to lead kids from Genesis through Revelation in about 2 years.    


Nursery care is always provided for children 2 months - 3 years old during Wednesday night and Sunday morning gatherings. We also provide nursery/child care for select weekly Bible Studies and events. On Sunday mornings our 2 & 3 year olds are introduced to the same Bible story that our Pre-K and Kinder students are studying in their weekly Small Group.
