Faith Formation for all ages is an important aspect of the ministry of First Church.


Sunday Morning

We hope on Sunday morning that Worship offers both spiritual and thoughtful inspiration for faith formation.

All ages are welcome to Worship!

On Sunday from September through May, the pre-kindergartners through 5th graders begin in Worship. They participate in the opening Song and prayer.  Pastor Heide welcomes them to the front for a lively conversation and prayer.    They are introduced and explore the same scripture focus as those in Worship.  Then we all go to Fellowship Time.


  • PreK-Kindergarten
  • 1st-2nd Grades
  • 3rd-5th Grades

The Faith Formation leaders seek to make the Sunday morning time a great time of learning, exploring, and creating.  We recognize that faith in many ways is caught through experience and conversation.  So please join us!

Wednesday Evening is Youth Night

Middle School Youth (Grades 6-8)

The Middle School Youth meet each Wednesday evening from 6-7pm.  Each week we dig into a scripture through video, games, and creative expressions such as art, drama, or crafts.  We conclude our time with food!

Confirmation Class (Grade 9)

From September through May the ninth graders explore more deeply into the Christian faith with Pastor Heide, a mentor, and the congregation.  This time is an exciting time for them to ask questions and creatively discover the meaning of Christianity and their faith through this particular religion and denomination.

The Faith Formation is an important aspect of our ministry.

  • First Sunday of each month:  Family Worship, all ages in worship.
