Children's Council

The Children’s Council plays a key roll in First Church’s vibrant Children’s Ministry. With a heart and vision for all the children of our church family, the Council serves as a representative for each age group in church policy and event planning, and emphasizes engaging with parents.

The Council strives to create a Children’s Ministry which is truly unique and which embraces being an open church for all to worship, grow, and serve.  We continually focus on creating an atmosphere that clearly communicates the love of Jesus through a nurturing and inclusive environment.

The Children’s Council is involved in many functions and events of the church, including the Transportation Ministry, Block Party tailgating, Children’s Tutoring Ministry, renovation of the preschool area, preparing meals for evening children’s activities, Children’s Sunday School, providing childcare for all church events, and newborn family meals, just to name a few!
