Leading Children to Relationships with Christ, Family, Church, and the World


FPC'S Children's Ministry is committed to provide programs for children from Pre-K 4 year olds through those that are in 5th to 6th grades. This includes: Kids Connection, Awana, and Junior Church, Children's Music and any other seasonal or occasional ministries or activities.

Our three basic programs are:

Kids Connection (Sundays 9:15-10:15 a.m.) 

Jr. Church (during adult worship service, kids escorted out around 11:15 (after the offering is taken) till the end of the service.)

Awana (for Pre-school through 6th grade, during the school year, Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 p.m.)

For more information on how FPC seeks to minister to children and the opportunities available contact Louise Grider, Children's Coordinator at louisegrider@cox.net or louise@fpcniceville.org.                 


Starts at 9:15 and lasts until 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

Kids Connection refers to the idea that we want kids to "connect" or interact in these important relationships with God, their families, their church family, and with those outisde their church "in the world" in ways that are pleasing to the Lord. 

Kids Connection has 4 groups

*Toddler (2 to 3 years)--10 to 20 minutes of simple Bible stories from Show Me Jesus series from Great Commission Publications with supervised play the rest of the hour.

*Pre-School  (4 to 5 years)--Bible in Life series from Reformation Press.

*Middle Elementary (1st to 4th grade)--interactive model with Bible stories/lessons, music, Bible memory, crafts and/or games.

*5th and 6th Graders--My Purpose Will Stand from Children Desiring God curriculum. 


Junior Church

Junior Church is a spiritually enriching and educational opportunity for our younger church members offered each week halfway through the adult worship services.  Youngsters of Pre-school age (4 yrs. old through 1st grade) are accompanied out to a classroom with an approved adult teacher for lessons from a curriculum that teaches Bible truths in ways that are relevant to kids.  Children are offered snacks and age-appropriate activities, such as simple crafts and games.


We also have a playground for younger children protected by fencing and equipped with benches and table for parents to enjoy.
