The mission of our Children and Family Ministry is to help our youngest members learn how to love our neighbors by practicing the love that Jesus taught us through the scripture. Our hope is to provide FPC kids with the foundation to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.
Lead by our Director of Children and Family Ministry, Katie Kindig, faith formation opportunities include toddler and preschool, through sixth grade. All programing is cohesive, specific to age as volunteer teachers adapt to each child’s needs for the most successful learning environment.

Are you looking for an opportunity to get to know a few more fellow First Presbyterians? Perhaps you live alone and wish that you had a bit more personal contact, or maybe you have interests that you would like to explore with others. You may simply want to try out the experience of a small group of fellow Christians for whatever joy it might bring. Jesus urges us to “love” one another. That starts with the caring we share with those around us. If we have a common Father, then we are indeed sisters and brothers in the eyes of God.
If you think you would like to explore the small group experience, please contact us. Your expression of interest does not commit you to participating, it simply says that you would like to know more about connecting with others in our faith community.
