Our Great Chilren's Church!
Our Children's Church is for K-4 and starts during our worship service after the Children's Time. Teachers lead the children to their class room on the second floor, near the nursery. The nursery is for babies to children who have not yet entered kindergarten. During this this time, we have different medians for crafts;paint, clay, drawing or time for reflection of the story.
Families, Youth and Children (FYC) Newsletter comes out every Thursday to keep interested people up-to-date on our lessons, upcoming events and to vote on new ideas. Please email Suzanne@firstpresithaca.org to be added to the list.
Our Youth Program:
Our Youth program takes place after church at 11:20-12:20, in the youth room. Currently, we meet outside of church for activities at 4 - 6 pm the fourth Saturday of the month. The activities change each month, check out our Facebook page for the latest events.
We are working toward a three-year pattern of holding one major youth event each year: a retreat, a mission trip, and the Presbyterian Youth Triennium, a worldwide conference held every three years at Purdue University in Indiana.
Our youth group is specifically a safe place for Christian LGBTQ students and their allies, and works to practice environmental stewardship and community care.
We believe that we could not call ourselves followers of Jesus if we did not do the same.
