Our commitment is to a life-long journey of growing in faith and commitment. We have a strong Faith Formation Ministry for children, youth and adults, which includes intergenerational activities. There are spiritual growth opportunities for all ages on most Sundays during the program year.

A nursery is provided for infants during the Sunday service, and older children leave mid-way through worship to participate in Children's Faith Formation.

Faith Formation for Children
The children of First Church begin worship in the Sanctuary and are dismissed for their own developmentally appropriate experience of engaging in Scripture and the Christian Tradition through art, music, movement, and prayer.
