Kids' Ministry

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 several programs on Sunday mornings, Family Fun Nights throughout the year, and a fun-filled Vacation Bible School each summer.

Sunday Morning Programming

Our Sunday programs provide a chance for kids to worship and learn in creative ways. During the 11:00 casual service we offer Kids' Worship, where kids K-5th grade encounter God through music, Bible adventures, and prayer.
