CHILDREN

First Congo Kids Playground

Kids need to play! With a growing number of children in our education programs and a desire to serve our community neighbors, we have added a playground to our church property.

Working with Ripon College, we installed commercial-grade play equipment for children ages 2-12 in the spring of 2019. The playground encourages the creative play and physical activity that are so important in children’s development. It also underscore First Congregational Church’s commitment to providing a safe, supportive, enriching, and fun environment for children and families.

Thank you so much to all our donors and all those who gave of their time and labor!

Sunday School

 

Every Sunday from 9:15-10:15

Our Sunday School program is currently organized into three flexible classes. The Little Fish classroom has children ages 2 - 4 years. The Story Masters have ages 4K - 3rd grade in their classroom. The final classroom is the Faith Explorers class which is children in 4th - 6th grades who are preparing for the confirmation class.

Nursery

 

There’s nothing we love more than hearing toddlers babble and babies cry during the church service.  If your little ones get restless, check out our “busy bags” – loaded with coloring pencils and other goodies – located at the entrance of the church.

We also provide a free nursery service for all ages of children during Sunday worship following the Children’s Moment, about 10-15 minutes into the service.  Our nursery is staffed by Ripon College Students and volunteers.
