Children

Welcome to our Children’s Ministry! It is our prayer and deepest desire that the Lord would use this ministry to help your child go deeper into God’s Word, grow in their relationship with Christ, and then be able to share the joy and love they have received from God with others.

We believe that parents are the primary disciplers of their children, and we desire to support you in this important responsibility. We provide materials for the parents to help disciple their children at home. Our Sunday School teachers are dedicated to sharing Christ through Bible lessons, activities, prayer and relationships. Our prayer is for each child to put their complete trust in Jesus so that they may be changed from the inside out. As a church we desire that each child would love Christ more every day, glorify Him in all that they do, say and think, and have a burden to share the love of Christ with others.

During this season of learning to be a church family while we "shelter in place", we're glad to offer ways to engage your children in worship and learning.

We aren't halting our classes. No! We are taking our classes to YouTube! You can find new classes uploaded to the First Pres Fresno YouTube channel each Sunday while we are all staying home. As we strive to keep community, we also encourage you to connect with Kingdom Kids through our Facebook page; Kingdom Kids Facebook

We are still meeting on Wednesdays with our Kingdom Kids via Zoom, aka Zoom Kids Wednesday Afternoons from 3:00-4:15pm

We pray that we will soon be able to resume normal activities and be back together again.

Our Nursery

The nursery is located on the ground level across from the Fellowship Hall. 

It is open to children from birth to age 2 on Sundays during both worship services and the education hour between services.

The nursery is staffed by a group of background checked volunteers who want to share the love of God with each and every child.  Infants and toddlers enjoy age-appropriate toys that are sanitized after each service.  We hope your child will enjoy his or her time as they take their first steps toward Jesus with us.

 

Children 2 Years up to 5 Years of Age

We have a dedicated team of trained Sunday School teachers who desire to teach God’s Word in a nurturing, fun and interactive environment as they pour into the lives of your children.  Our Preschool Children’s Ministry is designed to assist parents in the spiritual training of their children.  We are dedicated to teach God’s Word and love these little ones with the love of Christ. On Sunday mornings your child will participate in a Bible-based lesson, outside play, music, crafts, snacks, games and relationship building.

  • During the 8:30am Worship Hour Preschool meets in the Nursery.
  • During the 9:40am Education Hour & the 11:00 am Worship Preschool meets downstairs in B9.

“We will not hide these truths from our children but will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord. We will tell of His power and the mighty miracles He did.” 
Psalm 78:4
