Sunday Praise School

First United Church of Christ’s children’s ministry is all about the one most important thing in life: a growing relationship with Jesus. Suitable for children ages 4 through 5th grade, teachers use a variety of methods in the Sunday Praise School. The aim is not to just teach about the Bible – it is designed to changes lives! Through meaningful activities, discussion and personal challenges, students take their learning to heart. Sometimes, learning even happens outside the church.  Last summer, Vacation Bible School was transformed into Vacation Bible Adventures and the learning happened outside, while exploring God’s wonderous creation in our County parks.  Our goal is to make it the best hour of your child’s week!
