First Family-

Thank you to each of you who completed our First Kids’ Parent and Volunteer Survey.  As we predicted, there were many varying thoughts of reopening, and we appreciated everyone who took time to share their feelings and concerns with the Staff and Administration Council.  The safety and well-being of our children is so important here at First.  We cannot stress enough how much we miss seeing their faces at our First Kids’ Check-In Desk each week.  We are anxious to see them, but we want to be wise about the timing.

After consideration from surveys, healthcare professionals, and reviewing the cases in our city, we have decided to keep our First Kids’ area CLOSED at this time. As school begins, we are hoping to gather more information on how the virus will spread.  This information will help us when we meet again in September to reevaluate how and when to open. 

We appreciate your patience and grace as we navigate these unchartered waters.  We are making decisions in the best way we know how.  In the meantime, we encourage you to lead your children in a time of Family Worship on Sundays.  You can follow the link below for an easy to follow video, worship song, and lesson each week!  If there are other ways we can assist your family, please let us know.  Our staff is here for you during this time!
