First Presbyterian Church loves kids!  We WELCOME all kids, EQUIP them for a deep and living faith in Jesus Christ, and SEND them in the world to share God’s love! 


The Children’s Ministry at FPC offers Christian Education on Sunday mornings at 9am. We also provide nursery services for those who have children under the age of three. Also, ROOTS, a faith-filled club for 4th-5th grade children, meet each Sunday from 4-6pm.  In addition, CLIMB, a middle school youth group, meets on Wednesdays from 3-5pm.


Age Groups

Sunday School begins at 9AM every Sunday (unless otherwise posted)

  • Nursery (3 months – 3 year olds)
  • Classroom 1: PK (4) – 3rd Grade
  • Classroom 2: 4th – 6th Grade


When you arrive, please come downstairs where you will find a kiosk downstairs near the fellowship hall. We ask that all children be checked-in and checked-out as a safety measure for the whole family. 


During Church

Children Worship Bulletins and activity bags are available for kids in the back of the Sanctuary.  Ask an usher if you are unable to find them.  


Children are a gift from God. Jesus welcomed the little children, and so do we! We are excited you’re here and believe children’s voices are the sound of new life in the church, so don’t worry if they’re making some “joyful noise” during the service. We want to help both parents and their children feel welcome and affirmed just as they are, whether they’re seasoned churchgoers or first-time visitors. We know that when children feel truly welcomed, they are happier to be in church and will want to take part in being full participants in worship. You will also find, being in Fairbanks, that many of us live far away from our extended families. First Pres is a place where congregants have come to serve as grandparents, aunties, uncles, sisters and brothers in the faith, sharing our love of God with one another. We hope that when you are with us, it feels like home. 


If you have any questions about our children’s ministry or would like to volunteer with the programs we offer, please contact Marta Conner (Office Manager) at 452-2406.
