YOUTH PARTICIPATION IN CHURCH
Typically, Sunday School is upstairs at 10:30 a.m., and includes ages preschool and up; however, youth activities are currently on pause due to Covid 19 precautions.
At special services, we have the youth take over Music Director duties, read the Timeless Word and Moment for Mission, and be involved in preparing for the day when God calls them to be leaders of the church and to do His bidding as such.
Our mission is to teach the children that they are precious children of God as is everyone; and as such, show them the joy and peace that God brings to their lives and teach God's instructions of reaching out to others with God's love and being God's hands and heart here on earth and give them a foundation to stand on in a changing troubling world.
"Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." ~ Philippians 2:3-4
"Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
~ Matthew 19:14
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)
Vacation Bible School is held every year. We vary the type, times, length, and theme of Vacation Bible School. All children are invited; whether their parents are members of our church or not, whether they attend regularly or not, or whether they belong to any church,
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." ~ Proverbs 22:6
High School Graduates attending or beginning post high school or college, who are members and active in First Christian Church are eligible for a possible $1000 Scholarship (available this year). ASK IN THE CHURCH OFFICE FOR A FORM.
