At First Church we realize the difficulties families face in the 21st century, as they try to raise well-balanced, morally conscious children, who have a life-impacting knowledge of the love of Christ and are committed to making the world a better place. Most of us would love to “be still, and know God”, but find it hard to do so as we balance the demands of everyday life. Because of the pace of modern life, First Church has made a strong commitment to our Family Ministries. We strive to build up and equip the families of our church to grow in their faith, individually, and as a unit.
We have a variety of ministries and events for families, children and students of all ages. We invite you to discover all we have to offer, and we hope you find a home, where your spirit is filled, and your gifts are used for God’s glory. For more information on any of the events listed below, please contact Lauren Hargis through the church office at (239) 992-3233. On the following pages you'll find more detailed information about our Children's, Youth and College ministry programs, as well as the Wonder Years Preschool.
