PIER 95 OPENS AT 9:15 am

Please know that our large group worship time for children ages PK4-5th grade, (called PIER 95) opens at 9:15 am on Sunday mornings.   Rachel Godin and our volunteers are there preparing for lessons, but cannot consistently supervise the children before 9:15.  If you do arrive early, you may stay in the room with your child, or sit in the sanctuary until it's time to enter.  Thank you for your understanding!

THANK YOU!
First Pres Children's Ministry is truly grateful to the donations given to sponsor the 12 children needed for VBS.  Thank you to the families and individuals who gave so generously.  
FLAT JESUS has been given out to children ages PK4- 5th grade for the past few weeks.  If you need one (all ages welcome), please come see Rachel Godin!   

Where is your Flat Jesus goin' this summer?

SUMMER CREW SUNDAY MORNINGS

As a reminder, this summer children ages PK4 through 5th grade are meeting in PIER 95 only, and not switching into their grade level small groups.  Our summer is filled with games, hands-on activities, and fun challenges all based on Bible skills.  Laying the foundation of bible basics, will help them become even stronger followers of Jesus!
