First Kids is a safe, supportive place where kids can grow, learn, and have fun! Every week, there are ways for kids to discover REAL life that Christ offers. Your children will have a blast seeing how much God loves them, how important they are, and what it means to trust Jesus.


Our staff and volunteers want kids to remember the truth they learn, so they always strive to make it fun. Because we believe that the Truth found in God’s Word is life-changing, we make sure that your kids have a chance to learn something new every week—and have a great time doing it!

Our Preschoolers (3-K)will be splashing around on their own slide too! See you there!
