FirstKids Children's Ministries

Canyon Campus

Welcome!

We are so excited you are checking out our activities for the children in your life. Your child is a child of God, and we invite them to join us. All adults are welcome to sit in with us as well as participate as a leader/volunteer. We're always looking to add new faces to our children’s ministry team!

Mission and Vision

"Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face always." -Psalm 105:4

The purpose of FirstKids is to create a Christ-centered environment within the children’s ministry (kids, parents, families, leaders, events) that brings children and families to a relationship with Christ and others. This will be done through lessons and quality fellowship time and activities. Our mission is to equip children with a biblical foundation that drives a desire to be disciples, transform hearts, lead others to Christ, and seek God daily.

Safety is Our Priority

Please have a peace of mind knowing that we set standards very high for our leaders, team members, and nursery staff. Your child will be cared for and nurtured by adults who have hearts for children, hearts for God, possess clear background checks, and pass our Safe Sanctuary training. These last two provide the physical safety for you and your child. We constantly strive to provide to best we can offer! View our Safe Sanctuary policy here.

Worship

Worship on Sundays as a family! Wiggle bags are available to pick up and offer activities for you kiddos during service. Kids are invited to participate in children’s time during the service. This is a time designed specifically for kids to engage in worship.

At the end of their study, these individuals can chose to be confirmed into the church. In addition to Sunday evenings, we will have activities scheduled throughout the semester to expand the knowledge and meaning of being a disciple and finding individual identities.

Wednesday Nights

Students in kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to join us on Wednesday nights during the school year from 6:15 to 7:30 for age-appropriate fun and lessons! Each week, the kids will engage in activities that encourage and challenge them to live each day as Christ would have us do. They will experience the love of Christ through fellowship, prayer, lesson, and worship.
