Let me begin by introducing myself to you. My names is Lisa Turley and I am the Director of Children's Ministry at First Church. I believe that every child is set aside for God's purpose and that he has a plan for each of their lives As I have noted above Matthew 19:4 demonstrates how even from the beginning, children have been so uniquely desired.
My goal is to help our kid's build a foundation of faith by using the Bible as the basis of our teachings, developing lessons and activities around the physical and emotional needs of the child, recruiting teachers who encourage children to become disciples of Christ, and most importantly encourage the parents to teach their children about Christ through word and action. I believe all church ministries must support parents as spiritual leaders, but the primary responsibility of providing religious instruction should come from the parents. This is why it is so important to me to minister not only to the children, but to the entire family unit.
I am so excited about Children and the ministry of First Church and want to get out families connected in every way. To accomplish this goal I have carefully designed this section of our First Church's website with families in mind to give you an overview of our children's ministry and by introducing you to all our ministry opportunities that we offer on the first floor. If you still have questions after looking over the pages, or need more specific details please give me a call at the church office. I am always here to serve and would love to help you.
May God Bless You This Week,
