Bible Bucks Are Back!

Bible Bucks! Yep!  We are bringing them back!  If your child been here a while, they might remember them.  The first Sunday of every month will be the Bible Bucks Bazaar where your kids will be able to buy things with their Bible Bucks!  They can spend them or save them for bigger items.  They can earn Bible Bucks with attendance, bringing their Bibles,  Bible Memory Verse, bringing a friend and learning the Lord’s Prayer, Books of the Bible.  We will be sending a list home so they know how many Bible bucks they can earn.

We use Grow Curriculum (with a little bit of “us” thrown in) for all ages!  “We believe there are four spiritual habits that help kids (and adults, too) grow closer to God.”  We focus on these spiritual habits both in Our Sunday school and our outside activities. They are:

  • Spend time with God

  • Spend time with others

  • Share your story

  • Use your gifts

Sunday Morning Childcare - OPEN from 8:45-12:15 PM (Nursery and Toddlers)

Our youngest children are cared for by several professional caregivers who are assisted by loving volunteers. The facilities are clean, safe, and comfortable. For more information contact Katie Morain at katie@fpcgh.org.

 

Preschool Sunday School - 9:00 & 11:00 AM (Blue Room)

Our Preschoolers have fun learning the same thing that our elementary kids are learning with a different theme every month!  The Grow Curriculum is taught with fun activities designed for preschool-age children. Our goal is for children to learn the truth of a loving heavenly Father by providing a variety of activities that will help them apply what they’re learning.

Elementary Sunday School - 9:00 & 11:00 AM (E3 & E7)

Our Sunday morning program designed for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. We spend an equal amount of time both in the Old and New Testament and we teach it chronologically with fun activities and things to make that lead back to the story and Big Idea. We want them to start thinking about our four spiritual habits and how they can use them in their life.​

FAQs for First Time Visitors

 

Where Do I Go?

Newborn - Toddler-aged children (0-3) can be dropped off in the Nursery or Toddler room anytime between 8:45-12:15 pm where they will be checked in digitally. Katie Morain is our nursery coordinator and can be reached at katie@fpcgh.org.

Children in Preschool and Elementary enter the sanctuary for service with their parents. During the service, the pastors will invite all children to move to the front of the church for Time for Young Disciples. After this, children will be dismissed to Sunday School. Sunday School Teachers are available on the patio to walk children down to their appropriate classroom. After service simply go to their classroom for pick up. 

Check In and Check Out

Children are checked in and out at their classroom. We use an electronic check in system, and if you would like to pre-check in you can use the Church Center App to find us!

How Are Volunteers Screened?

We check the background of all Sunday school teachers via LiveScan. We also hold regular trainings for them. Most know CPR and basic First Aid.
