At First St. Charles, kids grow in their understanding of God's love and become young disciples of Jesus Christ. We offer several programs for kids of all ages throughout the year. Your child will have fun while growing in their faith!
First Kids Early Childhood Center (previously known as First Kids Learning Center) provides early childhood education in a Christian environment for children age six weeks through five years-old. For 40 years, First Kids has provided high-quality, Christian early childhood education. As a unique child of God, your child will experience early childhood education at First Kids based on the Christian principles of love and sharing.
Youth Ministries provide a vital and dynamic way for students in grades 6 - 12 to grow in their Christian discipleship. Worship is essential to a life of faith. We have three worship services every Sunday where youth can worship and witness their faith to others.
Bible Study and discussion with peers equips young men and women to interpret the Bible and live their faith. Sunday School meets at 10:00am Sundays and youth group happens Sunday evenings. Christian Community is an opportunity to build meaningful relationships that last a lifetime.
We want to help you grow as you learn about Christ and how to live a grace-filled life. Small groups meet for a few weeks to study the Bible, learn more about relationships, and discuss current social topics such as Race and Faith.
We have many programs emphasizing both education and fellowship. The purpose of all programs is to provide an opportunity for personal growth in the Christian faith and to enable all persons to experience the warmth and care of this church family.
We celebrate the fact that so many families make up the total church family. Because we affirm each kind of family, a variety of activities and studies are planned and held each year.
