Children & Families
Faith formation is essential to life at First Pres. Children in preschool through fifth grade are encouraged to attend Sunday School, where they will get to know Jesus, grow in faith, and learn about sharing the love of God through words and actions. Serving others is an important component of our Sunday School program, and children have many opportunities to put their faith into action, serving others through mission projects and activities. Dedicated volunteer teachers work hard to teach the love of Jesus each week. Thanks to these special teachers and other adult leaders, our children feel a sense of belonging, love, friendship, joy, and purpose. In other words, they feel God.
Ensuring the safety of every child is a priority at First Pres. All volunteers are required to participate in our Safe Sanctuary program, which includes a background check, volunteer application, and training session. Re-training is required every three years for active volunteers.
