Focus on Active Learning and Worship
We love kids at First! On most Sundays younger children particpate in the first part of the Worship Service and then head downstairs for worship, learning and play appropriate to their age.
We don’t have the traditional Sunday school with everything aimed at having a “moral.” We see children’s ministry as spiritual formation, shaping children to become followers of Christ. Children’s church aims to guide children into living a life of worship and obedience to God. We consciously try to include children in our worship service. And we believe very strongly that “children’s programs” are not just for kids. It’s about equipping parents to share and live their faith at home.
Godly Play for young children is based on the Montessori method of learning. Oasis Workshop Rotation for older children teaches major Bible stories and concepts through kid-friendly workshops. Kids love it and teachers love it.
