Kids Ministry

Explore the ministry opportunities for your children at First Church


At First Church everything we do and teach in KidZone is carefully designed to help your child creatively learn about Jesus through interactive lessons, music and hands-on age-appropriate activities.

Here’s what to expect whenvisiting KidZone for the first time:

First, find the area marked KidZone Checkin. This area is located at the Info Hub at the First Church campus you’re visiting.

There you will meet our Welcome Team, they’ll check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Email Address
  • Child’s name
  • Child’s birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

To ensure safety, all our volunteers pass a background check before working with your child.


Before Service:

You can check-in your child at any KidZone Checkin area. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.

After Service:

After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.


KidZone WOW (Worship on Wednesdays) is for ages 3 yrs-5th grade (and our nursery, ages 0-35 months, is also available during this time). KidZone WOW runs during adult programming at First Church on Wednesday nights.

No special registration is required for WOW, if your child has attended KidZone at least once, they’re set up! If you haven’t attended Pre-register now

KidZone WOW at the St. Joseph Campus is designed to magnify and explore the Bible each and every week in creative, upbeat, exciting and dynamic ways!

Both Little Kid Zone and the Kid Zone Club house opens at 6:15 p.m. for drop off. Pickups are at 8:05pm after adult programming is finished.

Checkin for KidZone WOW follows the same process as checkins for KidZone on Sundays.



We have resources and ideas for parents of children at any age
