First Kids Junior

At First Kids, ministering to kids and their families is what we love to do! We are dedicated to teaching and ministering to you and your kids in a safe and fun environment. In each activity with First Kids, kids will hear and know the Word of God, as well as how to apply it to their lives.

Our First Kids Junior hallway ministers to kids from birth through pre-kindergarten through fun, age-appropriate activities throughout the week.
