Vision

First Presbyterian Church loves kids! We desire to transform the hearts of kids to ignite a life-long desire to LOVE God, SERVE others, and GROW in their relationship with Jesus.
 
We believe that parents are the primary spiritual influence in a child’s life and our goal is to partner with and support our parents as they nurture and guide their children.

FPC Kids Communion Class

Is your child curious about Communion? On Sunday, April 17th, kids 8 and older are invited to come learn about Communion with Pastor Becci! She will help students understand why we celebrate communion and the symbolism of all the elements. A pizza lunch will be served before the class begins. We do ask that one parent attend, and because space is limited, please RSVP to Julie Brownlee.
