At this time, our Spiritual Growth Ministries are meeting remotely using online platforms.
We look forward to meeting with your children face to face once it is safe to gather again. We will update this page when we have new information.
In the meantime, please fill out the simple form below if you would like to contact the Children’s Ministry. We will be in touch quickly.
Children and Families
At a child’s baptism, our congregation promises to support and nurture a child in the development of his or her faith. At First United Presbyterian, we are committed to honoring this baptismal covenant in the way we nurture and guide the faith development of our children and their families.
First United Presbyterian Children and Family Ministry offers a foundation for spiritual formation, opportunities for worship leadership, experience serving others, and the resources to continue faith-filled conversations at home. Infants through 6th graders and their families, from both our church and community, are invited to participate in all of our programs.
Director of Christian Education, Kristi Button, M.A., C.C.E., is the head of FUPC Children’s Ministry.
Seasonal events include our Vacation Bible School, Celebration at the Manger, Children’s Musical, Easter Celebration, Pentecost Party, On-the-Go Summer Activity Packs, and more. Seasonal activities vary annually. We keep you up to date with our Children’s Ministry weekly e-newsletter and FUPC Families Facebook page.
Our nursery is staffed by childcare professionals in a safe and loving environment. Infants, toddlers, and Pre-K children enjoy a warm, welcoming space fully equipped with books, toys, music, and care essentials. Children hear Bible stories and participate in activities in a space designed for their curiosity and learning through play. For more information on our childcare, contact us with the form above.
Splash! Birth to Three Faith Formation
In our commitment to support and partner with families, we offer a special ministry to young families and their infant through 3 year old children: Splash!, by Augsburg-Fortress Publishing. At birth and one year, families receive a CD full of terrific music. Monthly parent pages provide information and support to parents as they minister to their child’s physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development.
Vacation Bible School
Each summer, we have an elementary one-week program at our church. This program is open to all children who have completed K through 5th grade. In 2020, we have a special Virtual VBS program.
Fayetteville United Presbyterian Church hosts First School on our campus. First School offers Parents’ Day Out, Preschool, and Kindergarten programs. First School is currently closed, as are all the schools in the state. First School expects to open in the fall of 2020.
