First Pres: Kid Tested--Mother Approved

First Pres is swarming with kids these days. We used to be kind of a grown up church but now we have been invaded by the little people. This is in part because their parents are looking for a church that won't threaten the kids with hellfire.

Sounds like a small thing, but around these parts a church like ours is not easy to find. Several parents (and others) have told me they like the church because of our vision and welcome, such as the eight points and our mission statement.

Of course we have fun.

We have a children's time in the worship service,

then the elementary kids go to a children's worship where they can do cool stuff.

The younger ones head off to our new nursery.

We hunt for eggs

and sometimes even find them.

And we let them play with concrete.

They are making their own stones for our new labyrinth which will be completed this summer.

Folks here think this is a pretty special church. I do too. You will find more pictures in our photo gallery. Check out our web page and if you are near our mountain, come visit!

Hoss likes the food and now and then even the sermons!
