St. Joe First puts kids first! We care deeply about helping children learn the Bible and making sure they know they are loved by God. Our goal is to build a firm spiritual foundation that will last a lifetime. Our dedicated teachers invest love and time in the life of each child. We offer a program and nursery on Sundays, a weekly Spark Kids' Club, and a fun-filled Kids' Camp each summer. Our Children's Ministry programs are led by Will Flaherty.
Spark Kids' Club on Thursdays
Restarting weekly on September 14th
Spark is an exciting mix of faith and fun! Spark is open to all kids in preschool through 5th grade. Each week kids will get the opportunity to socialize, engage in fun activities, and learn how to build a firm foundation of faith in Jesus Christ. Register here (for new participants only)
K-5th grade: Youth Center Room 305
Offered during the modern service, kids encounter God through a fun-filled and faith-filled hour of worship. Kids start out at the Activity station where they can color, do word searches, mazes, or crossword puzzles. Then there is an opening prayer, music, reciting a creed, Scripture, watching a curriculum video, discussing the scripture and video, having a get-to-know-you and prayer time, and ending by singing a few more songs.
Infant-preschool: Room 101 - Entrance 1
Our Nursery is open Sunday mornings from 8:45am to 12:15pm. The Nursery is staffed by a paid nursery attendant who is certified in first aid and CPR.
Summer Kids' Camp
All children pre-school through 5th grade completed are invited to our annual Kids' Camp held one week every summer. For more info on this exciting ministry, contact Director Will Flaherty @269.325.7057 or email.
