FirstKidz is the ministry to families of Kindergarten-5th graders, and partners with parents to equip children with the tools to know, follow and share Christ. We believe Christ-centered teaching is a must to develop a strong relationship with Jesus so families can be life-long, confident disciples impacting the world for Him.

Our staff is here to assist you and your children in any way that we can.  You will find the contact information for all of our Children’s Ministry Staff under the “Leadership” tab.  If you have questions or need assistance, please call or email us.

Sundays in FirstKidz

In FirstKidz we use the Gospel Project for Kids curriculum which is a 3 year chronological study of the Bible. It is designed so that in the 6 years spent in FirstKidz (Kindergarten - 5th Grade) each child will journey through the Bible twice.


9:30 - Connect Groups

During Connect Group time, your child can expect to engage with others of the same age in discussions about the Bible and how it is relevant to their daily lives,

11:00 - FirstKidz Worship

FirstKidz Worship is a high energy, Gospel intentional time of learning how to worship Him through music, devotion and even games!


Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 

AWANA provides a discipleship ministry for children ages 3 (by September 1, 2019) – 5th grades. Children are engaged in God’s Word through scripture memorization, games, and mission opportunities. AWANA meets at FirstKidz every Wednesday (August through May) from 6:15pm to 7:40pm.

We look forward to seeing you Wednesday!

During VBS, kids will focus on some amazing, real-life encounters with Jesus. Each encounter is like a snapshot—it’s a specific moment in time captured on the pages of Scripture. And when put together, these isolated encounters reveal the most amazing truth of all—Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by believing we can have life in His name.

The Bible we recommend for new readers is the NiRV as it is geared more towards young readers.

The Bible we recommend for more confident readers is the The CSB Big Picture Interactive Bible as this is the same version used on Sundays in FirstKidz and it parallels the Gospel Project for Kids curriculum.


Foundations for Kids is a 260-day reading plan for kids. This devotion follows the H.E.A.R. method. The acronym H.E.A.R. stands for Highlight, Explain, Apply, and Respond. Each of these four steps contributes to creating an atmosphere to hear God speak: 
HIGHLIGHT: Kids will study God’s Word and memorize a verse. 
EXPLAIN: Kids will read an explanation of the verses. 
APPLICATION: Kids will work an activity to help them apply the Bible truth. 
RESPOND: Kids will have the opportunity to respond in prayer. 


For new believers I'm a Christian Now: is revised to include a parent-friendly focus. This eight-week activity book helps kids know more of spiritual disciplines and the next steps of going deeper in discipleship. There are Older and Younger versions available.

The LifeWay Kids app has the resources that you need to journey with your kids through the bible in what they are learning on Sunday mornings. You can download it from the iOS App Store or the Google Play Store.

Our staff is here to assist you and your children in any way that we can. Our desire is to see your children learn the foundational, biblical concepts that lead them to an understanding of who God is, His desire to have a relationship with them, and how God wants them to grow in Him. 

If you have questions or need assistance, we are available to you and would love to hear from you.
