For the Children

Finish Line Ministry

Here at First Church we value discipleship of the next generation. Our children’s ministry program facilitates the spiritual growth of children from 2 years old to 5th graders. Weekly activities create an environment for children to learn about Jesus while engaging in activity and discussion.


Nursery 9:00 am

Our excellent nursery workers are happy to care for your children from birth to age 3 while you attend Sunday school and morning worship.


Sunday School 9:00 am

Our focus on discipleship starts young! Age appropriate Bible studies are offered for all children on Sunday mornings.


FCOG Children's Chorus 9:40 - 10:00 am

This is a brand new ministry for our children that is focused on helping them develop their worship habits and to expose them to leading worship through song and movement. They will assist in leading worship once a month in front of the congregation. This group will be lead by a fantastic team of adults: Randy and Norma Gilliland, Laura Smith, Betty Nash, and Krista Fleshman.


Sunday Starting Block 10:30 am

While your little ones may not have the attention span to enjoy Pastor Joe's sermons, they will definitely enjoy Starting Block! Creating an environment for children in kindergarten through the 5th grade to learn about Jesus while engaging in activity and discussion provides an experience they won't want to miss. Children are dismissed to Starting Block mid-way through morning worship.


Wednesday Track Meet 6:30 pm

Every Wednesday night, children ages 2 years old through the 5th grade are invited to engage with our dynamic teachers to learn about the Bible and grow in understanding about Jesus Christ- not to mention all the fun and games!
