CHILDREN, YOUTH,
AND FAMILY MINISTRIES

Safe & Enriching Experiences for All Ages

Family Ministry:

At First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood, we believe in the power of supporting families in their faith journey. When we baptize a child, we make a sacred commitment as a congregation to nurture their spiritual growth alongside their parents. Our dedication extends beyond Sunday Morning Education and Logos programs. We foster a strong sense of community through a variety of activities designed specifically for families within our church. From cozy movie nights to engaging game nights, these events bring families together, creating lasting bonds and cherished memories. Stay tuned to our calendar for the latest updates on these exciting gatherings!
