Here at First Church, children are a priority. We host many opportunities for children to play, connect with others, and learn about Jesus. All volunteers who help with children’s ministries have their Safe Sanctuaries Clearances.
UPDATE: In response to the “Stay at Home” order for the state of Pennsylvania, the Window Easter Egg Hunt is cancelled. However, children and their families are encouraged to continue to craft easter eggs and hang them in their window as a way to connect with and be a light to their neighbors!

This is a resource for families with children and students at home. It utilizes streaming services like Netflix and Disney + to join families together watching a movie and then provides insight into biblical truths that can be learned from the story. This week’s movie is Mary Poppins Returns and is currently streaming on Netflix. The theme is the Church as community. There are discussion questions for both children and students, and an action step to accompany the weekly focus. Our hope and desire is to equip parents to continue discipling their own children in a way that is relevant and engaging. You may download the PDF here.
We have several opportunities for children’s ministries during the 9:30 and 11 AM services. Adults need to sign kids in and out of ministry.
