Children are escorted from the Sanctuary to the Education Building, 2nd Floor, immediately following “Time With Children.”  2nd – 5th graders remain in the Sanctuary for worship.

“Worship Bags” filled with fun church activity pages are provided for children to use during worship.

Cry Room:

Age: All Ages

The chapel in the back of the First Presbyterian Church sanctuary has been designated as a “Cry Room” during worship for the convenience of young parents and grandparents when children become unhappy during worship.  The chapel is equipped with a speaker so that those using the chapel will not miss the worship service.

Rotation Sunday School

Children learn one Bible story for 4-5 weeks while rotating through different workshops related to a specific scripture: drama, movies, crafts, storytelling and cooking. For more information about this innovative Sunday School model visit www.rotation.org.

In Workshop Rotation Sunday School, we teach the same Bible story for 4 to 5 weeks in a row to all our elementary students. Each week classes rotate into a new and unique workshop (art, video, game, drama, cooking, Lego, etc.). The 2021/2022 year will be filled with exciting opportunities to learn about Joseph, Jonah, Advent thru the eyes of Mary, John the Baptist, Jesus’ Temptation in the desert, The Prodigal Son, Easter in the Garden and Paul’s Conversion. Join us either as a teacher or student!
