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.

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,

Recommended Books

adventure bible.jpg

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

One Bible Story Bible.png

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.png

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.

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.
