At First Assembly, we believe that children are vital to the life of our church. We want them to know that church is a fun place where they can enjoy themselves, be encouraged, and know that they are loved. At First Kids, we have made it our priority to provide them with a safe and engaging environment where they can experience the joy and goodness of Jesus’ love.
If you are planning to join us for the first time, there is no need to preregister. Just enter the building at Door #4 (on the southwest side of the building) and go to the first room on your right: the New Family Check-In Center. We will get your children registered and ready to learn and grow in Jesus while having fun!
Our tiniest children are cared for in a nurturing environment where we sing worship songs, pray for them and read scriptures that instill God’s purpose over their lives.
Ministry to these little ones is available during all Sunday services: 9:30 & 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM.
In each service, toddlers learn about God’s love through interactive games, a fun time of worship, crafts, and age-appropriate Bible lessons.
Ministry to our toddlers takes place during the 9:30 and 11:00 AM Sunday services, as well as on Wednesday nights from 6:30 - 7:45 PM.
Children 3-4 years of age attend AWANA (registration is required and available at check-in).
For elementary children, our interactive 9:30 and 11:00 AM services are designed to teach them foundational truths about God’s word through worship, skits, and age-appropriate Bible lessons. They will be able to make new friends and have a blast while learning about Jesus!
AWANA Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15)
For children age 3 through grade 6
Sunday nights: 5:30 - 7:00 PM
AWANA is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. It is a fun-filled, Bible-based program with awards/badges, a different game each week and exciting interactive teaching. Volunteers connect with kids through small-and large-group activities, Bible lessons and games.
JUNIOR BIBLE QUIZ (JBQ)
6:30 - 7:45 PM on Wednesday nights
JBQ's main purpose is to plant God's Word in our children's hearts, knowing the Holy Spirit will use those words to lead and guide them in all of life's decisions.
On a typical JBQ night, we practice and play games with the questions, hear a brief lesson from the Bible and participate in an activity or craft. Generally, we have a loud, crazy, fun time with the kids!
Students are free to learn at their own pace or participate in area quiz meets, where they compete against students from other ND churches. Whichever they choose, the life-giving Word of God will be a part of them forever.
SAFE & SECURE
Each service is designed to give your child a place to have fun, as well as learn about God and grow in a relationship with Him. We encourage the children to grow in their gifts and abilities and create an environment for healthy relationships between both their peers and leaders. To ensure that this environment is safe and secure, we require a background check for each volunteer. In order to pick up a child, the legal guardian must have a tag that coordinates with the child's name tag. A security team monitors the entire building before, during and after each service.
