Our Next Generation ministries include children and students ages 0-18, preschool through high school. In all these ministries, we have the same mission: to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication. Because we believe that Scripture is clear that parents are the primary disciple-makers in the lives of their children, our hope is to partner with parents in their pursuit of this mission, coming alongside them in the discipleship process. We do this in many ways, but especially through the various resources that we create. These resources help build a strong, gospel-centered foundation for their kids.
The Children’s Ministry at FCF is created with you and your child in mind. Our goal in every environment is to partner with you as you lead your child into a growing friendship with Jesus. We have designed each ministry area to be exciting, creative, fun, and to capture your child’s imagination - All to be a catalyst for a memorable, impactful, and applicable message each week!
In our Preschool ministry, we strive to create the first building blocks of a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We teach from the Scriptures and help parents proclaim to their kids who God is and what He has done in the person and work of Jesus Christ. We sing, dance and teach the Bible to the kids: God made everything, God is in charge of everything, God is good, Jesus came to save sinners, and God wants to talk with us.
In our Elementary ministry, we work to continue building up a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We do this by teaching our kids about the nature and character of God—that He is wise, generous, loving and good. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by creating environments, curriculum and resources that center on the gospel of Jesus Christ. We worship through music, we tell stories from the Bible and gather in small groups by age to talk about Scripture together.
In our Middle School ministry, we seek to increase that strong, gospel-centered foundation in our students through learning and studying the Word of God and living out biblical community in small groups. Middle school is where our students get their first experience of what group life is like within the church. Our hope is to partner with parents in helping students go deeper with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, God.
