Children’s Ministry@First: The Wonder Years!

WonderYears - blackFirst Church offers fantastic programming for children from infants through 6th grades every Sunday morning!   During the Summer when we shift to our Summer Worship Schedule (10am and 6pm services), we offer special programming called Summer of Wonder. This year’s theme is “God is With Us!” Nursery care is available at both services. 

FLOW: Children (except Nursery) are met in the Lobby by our Children’s Leaders immediately following the Time for Children.  Parents can pick their kids up in their classrooms following the services 




Summer of Wonder@First each Sunday from 10:15 to 11am from June 11th through September 10th.  Kid’s will leave for SOW right after Time for Children and meet  their leaders in the Lobby. This summer we will have a variety of exciting activities for all our kids that connect them to God through: nature, art, cooking, and music. Each Sunday will be wonder-filled!
