Infant through 5th Grade

What We Do and Why

At First Covenant Church, children are important! We seek to be an intergenerational church that welcomes all ages to our church and strives to live out our vision to love God and to love our neighbor together. We know that children are created in the image of God and long to be nurtured in their life of faith. We are intentional about investing in the lives of our children and walking with them as their relationship with Christ grows.

At FCC Omaha, we want to help your family grow in their faith! Parents are the most important people in the faith development of their children. Kids will mimic what you do and learn how to follow Jesus (or not!) by walking alongside you through life. 

This can feel like a huge responsibility, but don’t be overwhelmed! We are here to support you!


Sundays at First Covenant Omaha

Children of all ages are always welcome in worship- even with their noises and wiggles! 

Infants and Toddlers (Ages birth- 2 years old)
Room 204

Nursery care is provided during both Formation and Worship. Through tender care and attention, our youngest children will learn about God’s loving care.


Formation Sundays @ 9:30 am

Preschool (Ages 2 1/2-4 1/2)

Preschool kids learn best through play. We will explore stories found in the Bible as we play, create, dance and sing.

Elementary (Kinder- 5th Grades)

Elementary students will explore what it means to follow God with our hearts, souls and minds. We will explore the stories of the Bible, learn to pray and creatively interact with God’s word.

January 15th – April 2nd

This winter our children’s formation group will be focusing on The Beatitudes. Through movement and imaginative play as we explore the teachings of Jesus we will learn how Jesus turned traditional beliefs and expectations upside down to help us imagine living in the Kingdom of God. You can read the Beatitudes in Matthew 4:23-5:12. Each week families will receive a take home paper for you to talk about the lesson with your kids and pray together.

April 16th – May 21st

This spring our children’s formation group will become more familiar with the Lord’s Prayer, engage with scripture and practice prayer. You can find the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 and we say this prayer each week during our service. Through coloring pages and family talking points, you can continue this conversation with your child at home.

Worship Service

Worship Bulletins, Coloring Pencils & Books

Wiggles during worship are a reality. Stop by our resource table in the narthex for coloring pages, pencils, books and other quiet activities to help your child focus during worship.

We also have a Wiggle Room open during the worship service where you can let your child play quietly while watching the service from room 201- RED ROOM.

Children’s Worship (Preschool- 2nd Grades)

Children ages preschool through 2nd grades will be invited to go to room 202- YELLOW ROOM- to hear a story during the sermon. We will bring the kids back during the final song.

On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate communion and children remain in the worship service the entire time.

Children’s Christian Formation

We have a fabulous team of volunteers who help plan and shape the children’s ministry at FCC. 

The Children’s Christian Formation Team has a mission to supplement the family’s role in nurturing spiritual formation in each child. We want to partner with families at FCC to help equip and nurture faith development of kids and their families. Jacque Torson is chairing this team. 

For more information, please contact Pastor Mary Peterson or any of the Children’s Christian Formation Team.
