About Children’s Ministries

“LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME AND DO NOT HINDER THEM, FOR TO SUCH BELONG THE KINGDOM OF GOD!” MATTHEW 19:14

Jesus called the children forward to sit on his knee and hear stories of love, acceptance, and forgiveness. In this spirit, First Coppell Kids Ministry offers a fun and safe environment for children and their families to experience God’s love and grace. Through creative lessons, music, games, and gathering, kids learn about Jesus and how to live as faithful disciples in the world.

Nursery

Infants – 3 years old

Nursery care is available for Sunday School and all worship services. Special event childcare by reservation 48 hours in advance with a 4 child minimum.

Sunday School

3 years and older
10:45 am

Engaging, hands-on classes provide a scriptural foundation for children’s spiritual growth. We believe Sunday School is an important way to support children in the life of the church and teach children that Christ calls all of us, no matter how old we are, to serve others in God’s love.

Special Needs

Children of all ages

Our Loving HANDS Ministry offers Hope, Acceptance, iNclusion, Dignity, and Support for all families of young adults, youth, and children with special needs. Our goal is to ensure each child feels loved and accepted. We will provide a buddy for children who may need a little extra help staying focused during a church activity.

Kids 23 & Kids 45

2nd-5th graders

Kids 23 (2nd-3rd graders) & Kids 45 (4th & 5th Graders) meet monthly on Sunday afternoons throughout the school year for fellowship and learning with programs featuring snacks, scripture studies, games, and activities.

Music & Mission

4 years old – 5th graders

What better way to celebrate God’s love and teachings than through music? Children’s choir and handbells groups meet weekly throughout the school year.

Acolytes

4th – 5th graders

Kids have the opportunity to in worship to serve as an acolyte by carrying in the light of God to worship and placing the cross to signify that worship will begin. At the end of the service, acolytes carry the light of God out to be shared with everyone.
