Showing children a little piece of the Kingdom of God is the goal of every Children's Ministry staff member and volunteer at First-Centenary. Sunday School, celebrations of the church year, special events, and summer programs all strive to embrace the creativity and wonder of children and open new doors of exploration and thought. Each child is a beautiful and unique creation and within our programs we strive to provide many different ways for your child to grow closer to God. Come join us as together we learn and grow on this great journey!
At Roar! kids discover that God is good even when life gets wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.
Kids at Roar! VBS will join a missions effort to provide nutrition packets and health checkups for moms and babies in need in Zambia, Africa.
Roar! is for kids from 3 years to 6th grade, June 24-28, and will run from 9 a.m. to Noon each day.

Mission Project - Mustard Tree Ministries
The way we express our love for Jesus is by caring for others. “Do you really love me? Then care for my lambs.” Please help our “Littles” take care of His sheep.
We are embarking on a new Mission Project to help one of our own. We will collect gently used or new items (clothing, socks, toys) to bless the Mustard Tree Ministry. Please help your children go through things they may want to give. Our bins will be located in the Children’s welcome hallway, next to the First Kids Information Board.
First Kids Wednesday Nights
Welcome Back to Wednesday Night!! We know everyone had an amazing summer and with school starting you are excited to jump back into routine. Here at our church you have many fun options to choose from!
Every Prime Time Wednesday we start things off with our family style dinner from 5-6 p.m. (RSVP for food here!) Our nursery opens at 5:30 p.m. for “baby fellowship!” From 6-7 p.m., children are invited to participate in one of the following exciting activities: Clubhouse Bible Adventures for non-elementary children, On the Boat Bible Games for Elementary kiddos, or one of our THREE amazing Children’s Chiro opportunities: Pre-K4-Kindergarten, 1st-2nd Grade, and 3rd-5th Grade.
No matter which option you choose, your child will experience fun, upbeat evenings with their church friends…an absolutely perfect way to destress from the mid-week blues!
Attention moms!! You are invited to join the Mom’s Connection group. We meet Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11, Room 125, while school is in session. Nursery provided. For more information, contact Vanessa McDaniel (text or call) 423-902-1457.
