To partner with families in building a biblical foundation for spiritual growth leading to saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Children are an important part of First Presbyterian Church. We partner with families to provide nurturing, meaningful, and enjoyable experiences through which each child can learn of God's love.

Sunday School Dismissal Policy and Online Form

Please take note of the children’s Sunday school dismissal procedures put into place by the Christian Growth and Nurture committee:
-All children birth through three years-old must be picked up by a parent.
-All children K4-4th grade may be picked up by a sibling who is 5th grade or older without a written permission form.
-If a parent would like to give permission for a child to be picked up by a sibling who is younger than 5th grade or for a 3rd-4th grader to leave on their own, they must fill out a permission form.
For your convenience, we have put this dismissal permission form online. Even if you have filled out a dismissal form in the past, we will need an online updated form for our records. Please click here to fill out the form.
