First Kids ministry

Our purpose is to invite kids and students into a life changing relationship with Jesus and to connect parents to a faith community which can support and equip them beyond their capacity.



Preschool-Kindergarten Ministry

Our birth-kindergartners participate in bible stories, crafts and games where they will learn that:

 

-God Made

-God Loves Me

-Jesus wants to be my friend forever


Childcare is available at all three services.



Elementary ministry

Our 1st-5th graders participate in a First Kids Large Group service with multi-media, bible lesson and small groups in a creative environment where they will learn that:

 

-I can Trust God no matter what

-I need to make the wise choice

-I should treat others the way I want to be treated

children in worship

We believe children are a vital part of the body of Christ and families are encouraged to worship together.

 

Tables with coloring books, puzzles, and more are available for children during the 9:15am service.

 

Activity bags are available in the Narthex and 2nd floor of the Sanctuary during the 8:30 and 11:00am services. 

First kids events

Throughout the year the Children’s Ministry will host special events and fun outings for children! Join us for a week in June for First Kids Camp (VBS) for children ages-4-5th grade! 

first families parent/child events

Research has shown that one of the things that helps kids develop a deep, strong faith is intergenerational events at church WITH their parents. Over the course of a year we’ll have events where kids and parents can simply have fun and create a memory together.

This Spring, we will have a Mother/Daughter Tea and will host a Father/Son Camp-Out in the Fall. 

parent equipping

By downloading the Parent Cue App you’ll receive real time prompts that help every stage of parenting.

We will also send a weekly Parent Cue email with suggestions for daily interactions with your child to connect with their lesson at church.

We’ll be posting good resources on Facebook Group: First Kids-Hendersonville that we think can really help you as a parent.

 

Once a year we’ll host a large event where we’ll bring parents together for some great content and table discussions. We’ll have a national speaker and the latest ideas and info on parenting, as well as some time to talk and debrief with other parents.
