CHILDREN

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.

During construction of our building, our ministry to Children and Families has shifted. At FCC Omaha, we want to help your family grow in their faith this fall! 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

Preschool (Ages 2 1/2-4 1/2)
Room 206 9:30-10:30 am

Preschool kids learn best through play. This fall, we will explore stories found in the Old Testament as we play, create, dance and sing.

Elementary (Kinder- 5th Grades)
Room 202 9:30-10:30 am

Elementary students and their grown ups will engage in activities and discussion to deepen their understanding about faith and facilitate faith conversations between kids and adults. Our goal is to encourage adults and children to be formed by their faith through thoughtful interactions with each other. We will explore themes that will help us to acknowledge and recognize God’s activity with humanity and, ultimately, in our own lives.

Worship Service

Worship Bulletins, Coloring Pencils & Books

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

Children’s Worship (Preschool- 2nd Grades)

Children ages preschool through 2nd grades will be invited to go to room 202 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.

 

Wednesdays

Faith & Fun Nights 

On the first Wednesday of each month, we will gather to eat pizza, salad and cookies with our families. Each family will be guided through a faith conversation exploring topics like baptism, communion and what it means to be the church. 

October 6, November 3 and December 1 from 6:30-7:30 pm

RSVP to this https://fccomaha.org/connect/upcoming-events/

Donations to cover the cost of pizza will be accepted.

 

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
