FPC Children Education




Children's Sunday School

The Bible says that children are a heritage of the Lord (Psalm 127:3) Our mission here at First Presbyterian is to nurture children to know and love God. It is our goal that they know that their strength comes from the Lord, and that when Christ is the head of their lives there can be joy and peace in the midst of all circumstances. We are excited about our innovative rotational approach to Sunday School learning experience.

FPC offers Sunday School for even the smallest members on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:30am in the Christian Education Building. All of our classes study The Gospel Project. The curriculum goes through the entire Bible over three years. Our children love it, and they are learning so much as they "walk through the Bible."
