First Presbyterian Church Children

 

Fabulous Friday is a time for children, ages birth to 5th grade, to gather monthly for faith formation, fellowship and recreation. On the 2nd Friday of each month we spend a couple of hours with our children in worship, study, recreation and fellowship.

Worship Education for all children is incorporated into our children’s Faith Formation activities throughout the year.  During these times children learn what, how and why we do what we do in a Presbyterian worship service. Children often help write and lead the liturgy for worship services. 

Sacraments Class3rd graders meet with Mary Ludlow for Sacraments Class for six sessions prior to World Communion Sunday, which is the first Sunday in October. Their parents meet along with the children for three of the six classes. During this time, the children learn about their baptism, Jesus’ baptism, and the Lord’s Supper.

During the September Session meeting, children meet with Ruling Elders to share what they learned as well as their Faith Statement which is used during World Communion Sunday worship.This class is in keeping with the Book of Order:

4th and 5th graders meet once a month on Sunday for Faith, Fun and Fellowship (F3) . They meet at the church, in homes, or other locations for a time of exploring their faith, preparing for middle school, sharing a meal together, playing and praying.

Children’s Music – The Cherub Choir (K3-K5), Grace Notes (1st-5th grade), and occasional youth instrumental ensembles frequently enhance our worship services. Cherub and Grace Notes rehearse during Sunday School and Fabulous Fridays. For more details on Children’s Music, check out the music page here.

Basketball – As a part of the Greer Christian Basketball Association, First Presbyterian Church honors God through sportsmanship, fellowship and play. With teams ranging from K4 to 12th Grade there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved. Games are held at various churches in the Greer area and begin in the late fall.
