Summer of Wonder@First Church!
Summer at First Church means just one thing…it’s time for Summer of Wonder at 10am on Sundays from June 17th through September 16th.
Each week during the 10 am Summer Worship Service our Wonder Years kids (PreK-5th) will be experiencing a different activity. Not only will they have fun, but they will be making a connection to God through these wonder-filled experiences. Children will meet their leaders in the Lobby immediately following Children’s Time and can be picked up by parents in their classrooms immediately following the 10am service!
