Welcome to First Kids
Kindergarten – Elementary
We place a high priority on ministering to children. We understand that for most kids, the beliefs and values they form as a child will stick with them throughout their entire lives. Our goal is to create exciting, safe and educational environments for your child. We want kids to love to come to church and we hope to partner with you as a parent to make a greater impact in the life of your child! We want them to have a BIG faith, and the way that we cultivate that is through leading SMALL. That’s why small groups are so important to us!
Worship & Small Groups
First Kids believes that the best discipleship happens in small groups, which is why every environment of our ministry at every campus is small groups based. On Sunday mornings in First Kids your elementary student will experience worship, teaching, prayer stations, and small groups. Through illustrated messages, high-energy worship, action-packed and interactive games, and small group activities that bring the Bible to life, elementary students will start each week with a faith that they are inspired to live out and some practical ways to do it!

Wednesday Nights: Digging Deeper
This weekly programming takes place during the school year. We want a generation to grow up holding onto a faith that is rooted in scripture. We want kids who place their trust in God, not only in a moment, but every day. Kids don’t walk away from the truth; they walk away in search of truth. When they know truth – really know it – it transforms their lives! Digging Deeper is all about going deeper into scripture to teach elementary students the Bible at an even deeper level. Through illustrated messages, engaging worship, exciting games and in-depth resources your elementary student will walk away with a wealth of memorized scripture, an understanding of how the Bible is organized, and deeper knowledge of the Bible and the ancient world where the story began!
North Garnett Campus
Time: Wednesdays at 6:15PM
Partnering With Parents
In First Kids we believe that the parent is the primary faith influencer in the home and we believe that it is our job to partner with parents to help them be successful! We supply families weekly at every campus with resources to make the Bible come alive in their homes. In order to support parents in the best way possible, we’ve organized most of our resources at the link below so that they are easy to find and easy to use!
Common Questions Asked by Visiting Parents:
What should I expect?
During your first visit head over to the Connecting Point desk and one of our Connecting Point volunteers will enter your child’s information into our check-in system. Your child’s security tags will then be printed. One tag is placed on your child, the other tag with your child’s information and security number remains with you as a pickup tag. Then simply drop your child off at our First Kids space with one of our trained team members so you can enjoy worship. When you return to pick up your child have your pickup tag ready to hand to our team at the door so we can match it with your child and send you home to talk about what your child experienced in First Kids!
Who teaches my child?
Our First Kids team is made up of highly trained volunteers who can’t wait to meet your family. Our entire team goes through an extensive application, background check and training process. Our First Kids services are run by a whole cast and crew of fun, exciting and knowledgable volunteers who lead worship, communicate the Bible Story, play crazy games and engage your children in a personal time with God each week. Your children will love our Bible Storytellers, our on stage hosts and our worship leaders.
What will my child learn?
Each week our First Kids Team works hard to create an unforgettable experience for your family! Through heartfelt worship, personal reflection time with God, engaging Bible Stories and small groups, your child will have an opportunity each week to grow closer to God and learn how to live out their faith as we unpack our monthly Life App. To find out more about what we are learning this month check out the video below!
