Welcome to First Parish! We are excited to offer great faith formation programming for children and youth on Sunday mornings, as well as, Adult Faith Formation classes offered throughout the year. All materials are available online, for contactless pick-up or in-person for your convenience!
Children’s Christian Education Program
Children’s Christian Education Program (CCEP)
Who: Children in pre-K through 8th grade (Pre-k – Kindergarten, Elementary School,
Middle School, & Confirmation Program (7th grade – 12th grade)
What: Children’s Christian Education Program; formerly “Sunday School”
When: Sunday 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (following service on Sunday mornings)
WE ARE EXCITED TO OFFER AGE APPROPRIATE ‘PRAISE PACKS’ FOR CHILDREN AGES 2-12 TO AID IN WORSHIP ENGAGEMENT!
Where: Classes are 1 hour long and an allergy-friendly snack is served prior to the start of class; children in grades pre-k – 8 will meet downstairs in John, Luke and Cook Conference Rooms; Confirmation classes, when in session (grades 7-12) will meet in Corinthians Conference Room upstairs. Confirmation classes start in September/October based on interest. Read more about Confirmation class under our Curriculum tab.
Why: Our focus is fun, faith, and equipping parents with the tools to nurture their children’s faith. Age-specific classes are important, so children are able to learn at their pace and on their level without denying them the additional growth opportunity to learn about, serve, and worship God with their parents and Church family in service.
Ultimately, our message is: GOD IS LOVE and all are welcome here!
Safety Measures will include:
• Sunday School rooms are equipped with air filtration systems.
• All supplies and surfaces will be disinfected before, during and after all classes.
• Students will have their own supplies and practice good hand washing/sanitization before and during class time diligently!
