Child, youth and vulnerable Adult Protection Policy

We are committed to the protection of all who enter our care and other persons participating in the activities and programs of First Presbyterian. As part of our congregation's baptismal vows, we covenant with each other to take responsibility for the nurture of faith. As such, the members of this church have pledged to uphold one another. In the spirit of Christ we teach, strengthen, and support the individual's relationship within the church family. As our baptismal vows imply, we also undertake to preserve the integrity of each person within our church family. First Presbyterian Church is committed to the sanctity of all. A well-implemented policy protects all of those working, volunteering and learning in the church. This Policy covers any person employed by or volunteering at First Presbyterian Church in any capacity involving children, youth and vulnerable adults and all outside organizations using First Presbyterian facilities for child programs.

Vacation Bible School

Thank you to all who participated in this week's WOW VBS.  Remember these important words from VBS: Courage, Hope, Help & Love.

Sunday School

Preschool (3's & 4's) - Early Childhood Center

Childcare is provided in the church nursery each Sunday morning from 8:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The Early Childhood Center is located across from the Chez Coffee House, just inside the south entrance.

Preschool children participate in curriculum created especially for our youngest learners.  Each week children will engage in a variety of activities including songs, activities, crafts, and reading of Bible stories.  Two gifted, experienced preschool teachers lead this class.

Elementary (K - 5th Grade) - Second Floor

Grade school children participate in lessons plans geared just for elementary-aged students. Children hear and explore Bible stories through crafts, games, reading, and hearing. Children leave worship for Sunday school after a children's sermon early in the service.
