Children are welcome in worship. We do not mind a little fidgeting and fussing in the pew. We offer children’s worship bags with various quiet activities in cloth bags located just outside the Sanctuary doors. If you feel that your child is having a difficult time sitting through church, you are welcome to worship in The Well. Remember, quiet play in The Well is appropriate so as not to disturb others who are trying to worship. You may also consider the Nursery, which is located in the south end of the Case Building, where we have trained staff to look after and engage your child from birth to 1st grade. We ask that when you check your child in at the nursery that you leave us your cell phone number in case we need to contact you during worship. You and your child’s (spiritual, emotional, and social) needs are important to us. (Liz Norris—Director of Children’s Ministry)
A quick reminder: Under the Child Protection Policy children are not allowed to leave the Sanctuary or The Well without an adult escort. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Children in Worship-Children are welcome to worship in The Well. The service is projected live on two large screens for easy viewing. Again, the Nursery is available for ages birth through 1st grade.
The Well. Be sure let staff members know your child is there and sign into the book.
First Presbyterian Church has a child protection policy. All paid childcare staff and all volunteer teachers or event sponsors complete an information form and have a national background check completed. They also receive training each year. Classrooms have two teachers for safety and supervision.
Children are encouraged to participate in worship service at 9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Children from infant to 1st grade are welcome to go to the nursery. Children 2nd grade and older are encouraged to remain with their family in the Sanctuary or may view the worship service together or in The Well.
Children regularly participate in worship during Kid's Connection, which is a short message for the children during our regular worship service. Children sing during special services, older children regularly acolyte for worship service, and help for special occasions.
First Church cares about children and is very fortunate to have many outstanding, committed teachers and volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, we would like to visit with you.
