Children’s Ministries

Children’s Ministries at First Pres are a blast, with fun opportunities that walk with kids on their faith journey through 5th Grade.

Children are excited to meet God in a very kid way—with age-appropriate lessons, exciting and meaningful worship, and lots of play and joy. They love to see God at work in their lives through Sunday morning worship programs—Ignite and Inspire, a mid-week experience—Spark, and a summer VBS.

Ignite | Inspire | Inspire Jr.

During worship on Sunday mornings, children love to take part in their own age-appropriate worship experience.


0 – 2 years old

The nursery shows our youngest kids God’s love and care that starts from birth. Children age 2 are encouraged to join the leaders for 20 minutes during the service where they can take part in Inspire Jr. We sing, play, and read Bible stories with toddlers, adapting the program to your child’s developmental stage.


Age 3 – K

Here, kids love to discover God loves them, made them, and has a plan for them. They hear an exciting story from the Bible, sing high energy songs with big motions, do fun activities, and circle up for prayer time. And of course Inspire wouldn’t be complete without snack and a little play time squeezed in!


1st – 5th

Ignite is an upbeat worship experience where kids learn to live out their faith. At Ignite, children start the morning in a group led by volunteers. They participate in energetic music, intentional teaching, and small groups for fun activities, prayer, and discussion.


Wednesdays, 3:45-5:30.

This popular after-school program takes place on Wednesdays throughout the school year. Students in 1st-5th grades gather for worship, small group, and electives—which include everything from cooking to computer tear-apart to sewing and art to games with Victory Sports. Through these weekly gatherings, children learn about God’s big love for them.
