NURSERY CARE

Nursery care is available for all infants and toddlers ages three and under for Sunday worship and workshop opportunities and for identified special events.

  • 9:00 to 11:45am on Sunday mornings
  • 4:00 to 6:00pm on Sunday evenings

The nursery is located in Room 8 on the ground floor of the church.  The nursery is most easily accessed from the Weekday School entrance in the rear of the building.

The FPCLY nursery is staffed with loving and committed employees to help provide comfort and a peace of mind as you worship and grow with other adults.

SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP

Worship Cart

 

Keeping the attention of children during worship in the Sanctuary can be difficult!  With this in mind, we have created worship carts that are full of Biblically-oriented activities for children to explore in their seats during worship.  The Worship Carts are located in the Narthex as you enter the Sanctuary!

Worship Workshop

 

Children ages 4 through Kindergarten are invited to learn about special Sundays in the church year, Baptism and what it means, and begin to build the foundation of their own faith community in our Worship Workshop class following the Children's Moment in worship.

Room 1, Ground floor

Gateways to Worship

The FPC Weekday School operates as one of the most vibrant ministries of FPCLY and has been that way since its beginning!  This school year marks the 75th year of operation providing Christian-based educational opportunities for children in our community. With 95 students ages 1 to 5 and 21 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 below!

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?

Our Mission

Celebrating God’s grace, Inspiring the next generation for Christ… each and every day!!!
