Children's Ministries

We believe in the importance of welcoming children with open arms and providing safe spaces for them to learn, explore, and grow.

Bible Sponsorship Program

The Bible Sponsorship Program (BSP) is an opportunity for us as a community of faith to get God’s Word into the hands of our children and youth continually as they grow and develop.  We have created a package of six different Bibles to be given to the children and youth from the time they are born to the time they graduate high school.  We invite you, your family, or small group to come alongside a Child of God in our church community by donating a full sponsorship of $125 to the BSP.

Bibles are given at the stages of birth, preschool, 3rd grade, 5th grade, 8th/9th grade (or as a part of Confirmation class), and high school graduation.

Will you help us get the Word of God into the hands of our children?

Worship Cart

Keeping the attention of children during worship in the Sanctuary can be difficult!  With this in mind, we have created and placed (in the Narthex) worship carts that are full of Biblically-oriented activities for children to explore in their seats during worship.  The age specific activities may engage the students more fully and/or supplement their worship experience.

Gateways to Worship

temporarily suspended

1st & 2nd graders

follows the Children’s Moment at morning worship

In Gateways to Worship, children learn about worship--what worship is, why we worship, and more about the different elements of worship. The class engages the children through stories, activities, and play.

The FPC Weekday School operates as one of the most vibrant ministries of FPCLY and it has been that way since its beginning!  We celebrate with the kick off of the new school year on August 23rd, 2021 because it marks the beginning of our 75th year of operation providing Christian based educational opportunities for children in our community. With nearly 100 students ages 1 to 5 and nearly 25 staff filling classrooms, hallways, and playgrounds, God’s love and joy abound as the next generation is inspired for Christ.  If you're interested in learning more about the FPC Weekday School or enrolling your child or grandchild at a future date, click the button below!
