Our vision is to encourage within each child a desire to know and worship God in a personal way, to grow in faith, and to share the love of Christ with others.
The curriculum, activities and equipment we use are designed to meet the unique needs of each grade level. We want our children to see First Presbyterian as a place where people really love and care for them...a place where they can learn more about God, Jesus, and the Bible...a place where they can make friends, sing, pray and have lots of fun in a variety of activities.
