Ministries for Children, Youth and Families
First Congregational United Church of Christ is committed to engaging people of all ages in the life of our congregation. People of all ages are welcome here, and all of us still are growing in our faith.
Sunday School for preschoolers through high school students meets at 11 am during the school year.
Families are encouraged to worship together and to serve together. We host “family festivals” for Advent and Epiphany, and our 8:00 pm service on Christmas Eve is planned specifically for families with children. First Congregational families team up with folks from other local churches for Faith In Action, a day of service in October.
The Christian Education Committee oversees all activities for children and youth, plans and hosts special events, including Kick-off Sunday, the children’s Christmas program, and Valentine’s Day “I love family fun” party. Starting in 2013, we have organized and hosted a “Trunk or Treat” Halloween event, which attracts about 500 children and parents from the neighborhood.
