SUNDAYS During Worship

Through the 252 Kids curriculum, Kindergarten through 5th graders participate in interactive games, creative crafts, videos, music and small group discussions.  Each component introduces or reinforces the weekly Bible story which is centered around a monthly theme and Bible memory verse.  We want our kids to know and remember three basic truths:


-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


SUNDAYS During Worship

Through the First Look Curriculum, babies through preschoolers participate in games, crafts, music, and videos that introduce a weekly Bible story as well as reinforce a monthly theme and Bible memory verse.  We want our youngest kids to know three basic truths:


 - God Made Me.  

- God Loves Me.

- Jesus wants to be my friend forever.


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 kid 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.
