“FCC has created a loving and nurturing ministry for children and youth of all ages. We reach out to all children and help them take their next steps in faith.”
— Rev. Dr. Russell Peterman, Senior Minister
We offer Sunday School classes at 9 a.m. during the school year. Our loving and creative volunteers help our children and youth develop an understanding of the Bible and what it means to love others as we love ourselves.
Our Primary Sunday School teachers work weekly with the Whole People of God curriculum to help our children develop a firm understanding that we are all God's children and that God is a spiritual presence in whose love we live.
Children's Worship & Wonder - ages 4 through 4th grade
During our Sunday worship service, children ages 4 through 4th grade are invited to participate in Worship & Wonder – a specially developed worship experience created for young children. In Worship & Wonder children learn about God as they experience God. They hear Bible stories in a way that allows them to enter into the stories and form responses out of their own life experiences. Children attend the beginning of worship with their family, and then are invited to leave quietly to where one of our Worship & Wonder leaders will meet them at the back of the sanctuary and take them to the children’s chapel.
Nursery Care - infants through age 5
Nursery care is provided for little ones from 8:45 to 11:30 on Sunday mornings and as needed for special services. Our long-tenured, wonderful nursery staff provides care and makes church a friendly place for all God's children. First-time nursery guests will be asked to fill out a Child Information Sheet to allow our staff to understand the needs of your child. Our nursery is a nut-free environment.
Junior Youth Fellowship(JYF) - kindergarten through 5th grade
Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF) is our monthly program especially designed for elementary-age children. We organize fun outings, meaningful service projects, and encourage in faith-enriching conversations and experiences.
Pastor's Baptism Class - 4th grade and older
Each spring, just before Easter, youth in 4th grade and older can participate in a seminar, led by our Senior Minister, which inspires and explores what it means to be baptized, to have faith and be a part of the Body of Christ. Our Baptism service is normally celebrated on Easter Sunday.
