Parents' Corner

Teaching our faith to our children is important, because it will impart to them a strong foundation as they grow and develop.


We have assembled a list of some of our favorite resources for parenting, children’s literature, and growing in faith as a family.

Children’s Library

First Church has a new library for children! Located in the Beadle Room, the library is a curated selection of books that will help children learn more about God, stories from the Bible, and living a life of faith. There’s even a check-out sheet on the top shelf, so you can check out books whenever you want.

To help keep the library growing, we also have an Amazon Wishlist, through which you can contribute to our library!

Family Prayer 

God be in my head, and in my understanding, 
God be in my eyes, and in my seeing, 
God be in my ears, and in my listening, 
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking, 
God be in my hands, and in my doing, 
God be in my life for all my life, 
And help me to love you with all my heart, mind, and strength.
