Parents: can you help monitor one of these Sunday crew stores from 9:00 - 9:35 am? Contact Rachel Godin if available.

WHAT WE DO
Every Sunday at 9:30 am, your children will
Sing, Dance, Pray, Give, Laugh, Play, Learn, Love, Encounter, Share, and Follow. All in the name of Jesus!

WHY WE DO IT
At First Pres, we are on a mission to make disciples who make disciples.  In other words, we want to your children to KNOW Jesus and to make Him KNOWN!

There is not a SINGLE minute wasted in CREW Children's Ministry.  

Now ask yourself- as a First Pres CREW Family, do you 
Give, Serve, Connect and Invite?
