Christian Formation for our Children

From a very early age, we know that our children have an understanding of God.

The purpose of Children’s Ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro is to build a foundation of Christian faith and spiritual formation for our youngest disciples that begins a lifetime of knowing, loving, and serving God.

We offer Church School classes on Sundays for preschool and elementary students; Milestone classes for elementary-age children and story times and chapel services for preschoolers. Like the rest of the family, we know that our children are eager to serve others and join in fellowship, which we offer through through Kids Disciple Club.

During the summer we offer Vacation Bible School, lots of summer camps, and Middle School Service Week. To ensure the safety of our children at all times while on our campus, we have adopted a Child Protection Policy.

Most of our activities are on summer break until Sept. 10.

On Sundays

Deep Blue Kids is our new curriculum! We will explore Bible stories, spiritual practices, and character traits in Church School, chapel, and Worship Enrichment.

At home, use the Deep Blue Adventures app and take home Family Devotionals. Get ready to learn, serve and grow together!
