Family Faith Event: 3 Year Old Time Out

Your First Visit


If you are a guest, you’ll want to stop by our guest check-in on our lobby level first to get signed in. From there, a friendly host will take you and your child to their classroom.

The safety of our kids is very important to us so be sure to review our Safety Policy.

Weekend Services


SATURDAY AT 5PM AND SUNDAY AT 9AM & 10:30AM
Kids love attending FirstKids on the weekends! Not only is it fun, but they are taught a Bible lesson and virtue every week. The three-year-olds thru preschool kids start off with a kid-friendly praise & worship experience and story time, and then they break-up into age-specific groups for further ministry. Toddlers and two-year-olds start off with activity time followed by a video based curriculum. Fantastic leaders start pointing these precious lives toward discovering who Jesus is. Volunteers even pray over the infants in the nursery.

Wednesday Night Equip


WEDNESDAY NIGHTS FROM 6:30-8PM
(offered during Wednesday Night Equip in the fall & spring)
Join us each Wednesday night as we explore God's Word through lessons that dig deeper into the lesson from the weekend. We'll have great music and activities as well. Bring a friend and join us!
