Faith formation is at the heart of our living and being Christian. We believe in actively engaging our faith through worship, mission, working for justice and peace, evangelism, and education, so that our faith may be nurtured, enlivened, sustained, and formed. We are reminded that God's Spirit is continually present in our efforts to gain both “head” knowledge found in education and learning and “heart” wisdom discovered through prayer, ritual, and practice.


Christian Education isn’t just for kids! We recognize faith formation is a life-long venture. Here at First Church we offer a number of opportunities to learn, grow, and transform our lives through Bible study, book groups, workshops, and small group discussions.


A staffed nursery is available for infants and toddlers up to age four. Children in grades K-5 attend Christian education classes that are coterminous with 10 am worship. Children attend the first part of the worship service and then proceed to class after the children's sermon and scripture lesson.

Children are welcome and encouraged to participate in all aspects of our life together as a community. On the first Sunday of each month, children remain in worship to participate in the sacrament of the Lord's Supper.
