Life and Learning Ministry
First Congregational Church is a family-friendly church that sees a vibrant and well-rounded Christian Education program as an essential part of the church, with programs for all ages.
Children are invited to attend the first part of each Sunday service with their families; Sunday school begins after a “Children’s Moment” with the congregation. The Sunday school lessons are coordinated with music and crafts in such a way as to keep the children interested and involved, while furthering their understanding and knowledge of Christian beliefs and values, always with an emphasis on the joy of God’s love. The dedicated teachers and volunteers are devoted to finding new ways to insure that Sunday school is a meaningful, yet always enjoyable experience.
There is a separate ministry for teens, which delves more deeply into the Bible’s messages for living in our times, and facing the challenges that come with young adulthood. Young people, like all Congregationalists, are encouraged to find God’s truth through experience, and a strong focus is on finding the joy of God’s love by giving to others, both within the community and beyond.
We also have an adult education program, which is geared toward individual exploration of beliefs in a group setting. All are welcome to join the discussions at any time.
Come to First Congregational and find new friends – we would love to have you as a part of our church family!
The Life and Learning Ministry is responsible for the total program of Christian Education in the Church. The ministry works with the Minister(s) and staff in enlisting and training teachers and other volunteers, initiate new educational projects and classes, and provide a well rounded Christian Education program.
