Please come through the new glass doors and check in your child at the desk. Our talented Kids Ministry staff and amazing volunteers lead, teach, encourage and love the children who come through our doors every week. All of our leaders have completed background checks to help ensure that our children can learn about the Love of Jesus in a comfortable and safe environment. ​ Teaching the Word of God to eager, young hearts is our passion. In 2018 the Kids Ministry started teaching from Group, Inc.'s curriculum called FaithWeaverNOW. During this 3 year program, students will go through the entire Bible. During the summer of 2021 we will study the book of James. James was the brother of Jesus and it is really interesting to see what he has to say after growing up with Jesus. This lesson series will correspond with the summer sermon series.

Please come through the new glass doors and check in your child at the desk. ​ Nursery is provided during the worship services and Sunday School each week. Our paid Child Care staff and background-checked volunteers make sure each child is treated with the best care while they are with us. Preschool Worship is offered to preschoolers through Kindergarten during our worship services. We practice "Parenting in the Pew" where we help parents teach their children how to join their parents in the services by they time they are in 1st grade. Some kids need a little more time to adjust to the new setting. So they are welcome to attend the singing and children's sermon of the worship services and then come to join Preschool Worship midway through. We want everyone to be able to hear the sermon and some days little ones are a little more wiggly and talky than others. Please feel free to use the Preschool Worship as a back up for this learning process.

SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL 9:45-10:45am We hope your kids can join us! EASTER THANK YOU'S The Kids Ministry staff and Committee are so grateful we had the opportunity to host our Easter Family Event in the Great Hall and Parlor this year. It was a wonderful celebration as a church family to see all the children and their parents going from station to station talking about Jesus rising from the grave. We want to thank Howard and church leadership for saying YES to this crazy idea of us using the main church entry area on Easter morning. Also, we are so grateful to Dan Carter and the Parlor Sunday School class who were willing to move their class into the sanctuary for us. And we really appreciate Doyle, Hector, Janie and Linda for all of their help in set up and clean up after the event. You are humble leaders in this special church family! A BIG thank you to the many volunteers who came on Thursday and Saturday to set up, and those who came on Sunday to cover all the areas: greeting, welcome table, 8 stations, a photo booth, a café and final station of the big surprise celebration with streamers and LOTS of helium balloons. Yes, in the Parlor! JESUS IS ALIVE! ​ This year at our Rise Up with Jesus! Easter Family Event, families explored the following stations, collecting puzzle pieces at each station. They received the final piece at the climactic ending in the Parlor. Kim Talley led the final station and everyone celebrated that JESUS IS ALIVE!

  • US and World Missions | Firstpres

    US and WORLD MISSIONS Home / Ministries / Missions First Presbyterian Church believes strongly in the call of the church to reach out into the world by spreading the gospel and showing the love of Jesus Christ. To extend our reach, we support a variety of missionaries around the country and around the globe with our prayers and financial resources. OTHER INTERESTS Studies and Groups Worship Grow Connect Serve How to Get Involved Who We Support Meet this month's Featured missionaries Teri & Andrew Adair, Mission Mobilizers with Antioch Partners in Houston Hi First Pres Family! ​ ​ Teri and I are so thankful for our partnership in ministry with you all over these years. God has blessed and encouraged us through you in so many ways, starting when our family lived and served in Central Asia from 1997-2006, and then when we returned to the US and launched what has become The Antioch Partners (TAP) in 2007. Given my extended family’s roots in West Texas including there in Amarillo (my Aunt Peggy Bruckner is a long-time Amarilloan, and my cousin Chris Bruckner and his family are FPC members), having FPC as a partner church means a great deal! ​ With the help of partners like you, TAP has continued to grow and there are now 74 missionaries (we call them Partners) serving around the world through TAP. Though COVID has changed life for all of us and many Partners have had to adjust their ministries, God continues to work in and through them in amazing ways … people are coming to know Christ, lives are being transformed, leaders are being trained, churches are being strengthened and empowered, and much more. Thank you for your partnership which is helping make all this possible! ​ ​ Gratefully in Christ, Andrew & Teri Adair Craig Brown and family Church Planters – Nashville, Tennessee
