At First Christian Church, we believe that all children are treasures from God and have been blessed with unique talents and gifts. With this in mind, the Children's Christian Education Committee strives to provide a loving and nurturing environment in which each child can grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ, building a personal relationship with Him. In accordance with God's Word, our mission is to provide Christian Education for all children, focusing on foundational Biblical teaching and imparting Christian values which encourage individual faith development and spiritual growth.

“Spark Activate Faith” is the curriculum used by the children in the 3 year old class through Fourth Grade. Find parent and teacher resources here: fccwadsworth.org.sparksundayschool.org.

Teachers: Roger Wright, Staci Probst and Pastor Jim Singleton

Teachers Roger Wright and Staci Probst, along with Pastor Jim Singleton, will focus the curriculum to cover Bible basics: the Old and New Testaments, the Old Covenant between God and His people, the prophesies of Jesus’ birth, the New Covenant in Jesus, Jesus’ life and teachings, the Resurrection of Jesus leading to Salvation, and the history of the Church. This is a full nine months of foundational teaching that will lead your child to a place of decision to accept and follow Jesus, becoming a member of the Body here at FCC. Your child will then be given an opportunity to be Baptized on Palm Sunday, March 29, 2015. We encourage you to make every effort to have your child attend Sunday School this year.
