We love having kids at church! Children of all ages are welcome in worship and we embrace their joyful spirit in the sanctuary. We encourage them to do what make them most happy - come and stay, play in the nursery, or join friends in Sunday School. Mostly, we want them to share in the fellowship and fun that church can be for people of all ages.
While we are unable to offer Nursery care for our youngest disciples due to social distancing restrictions during this pandemic season, we have a dedicated space just off the Sanctuary for parents and children who need a quiet space to rest and retreat during worship or fellowship.
TIME FOR YOUNG DISCIPLES
We love having kids at church. Our 10 AM worship service includes a special ‘sermon’ created just for the children. We encourage them to then do what makes them happiest – stay for the rest of the service with their family or join friends in Sunday School. We are thrilled to integrate our young disciples and families into everything we do at FPCG!
Every Sunday morning, children from 3 years old through 4th grade can enjoy an engaging curriculum that brings the stories of the Bible to life, and into practice in everyday life. Dedicated, creative teachers bring understanding, meaning, and relevance to learning about Jesus, the Bible, and Christian life.
From pool parties to mission trips, from volunteer service to ski trips to confirmation classes, FPCG offers an array of opportunities for pre-teens and teenagers to encourage and foster their faith in a friendly, fun and supportive environment.
Much like a mosaic, our Wednesday children’s programming will be a miscellany of Scripture, games, activities, and team building. We will gather in the 4th Floor Youth Room, or at Collyer Center if the weather is nice, from 5-6 PM every Wednesday, followed by dinner from 6 – 7 PM. Parents are invited to enjoy an hour of fellowship while their children are in programming. Mosaic will be hosted by our Director of Children’s Ministries, Ellie Strathdee, and our Nursery Coordinator, Tara Church. For more information, please email email@example.com
