Parent Facebook Group | Join the First Christian Kids Parent Group on Facebook - A community space for parents to stay connected with each other, upcoming events, and what your kids are learning on how to love God and love people. Requests to join are monitored by the Kids Ministry staff team so that only parents of First Christian kids are admitted. This will be a private, safe space for our parents to connect and share together.

Safety

We take safety and protection of our kids seriously. We follow established policies and procedures to ensure safety and security.

Parents are given a parent badge that matches their child's when checking in. When a parent or guardian is picking up their child, we will verify the identity of the parent and matching name tag before releasing the child.

All volunteers must complete a criminal background check and a volunteer application. All volunteers check in and are identified with a volunteer name tag.

Our Children's wings are secured and can only be accessed by our team during services.

Volunteer

We have volunteers every week who are helping shape the lives of the kids in our community. If you want to be a part of helping these kids learn about Jesus and his kingdom, just click the Volunteer card below.

Parent Resources

Our heart is for your kids to become passionate followers of Jesus and extraordinary neighbors. We want to provide resources to help you lead your children well. You can find resources, information about what your child is learning, and sign up for our parent newsletter below.
