Children of all ages are invited to attend worship services in the sanctuary with family and friends. Our young members experience song and praise every Sunday in Altared modern worship. Occasionally, our 11:10 a.m. traditional service includes a Children’s Moment with a special message for the youngest Christians. First Church’s children’s choir offers music to all services several times a year.
All kids are welcome at Children’s Church from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. each Sunday where they learn about being Christians through lessons and games.
Jesus invited children, with their wiggles and giggles, to come to him. He invites them still!

If you are interested in attending an 11:10 Sunday School class, we will transition your child from Sunday School class to the 11:10 worship service.
It’s never too early to introduce children to Jesus! The nurturing foundation of his love can begin in the nursery! We work to engage young hearts and stimulate little minds with colorful posters, simple Bible stories and verses, playful activities, and lively music.
Nursery care for your little one is available during all worship experiences on Sunday mornings, on Wednesday evenings, and during church events. Sunday morning nursery is located in Room 132. Our nursery is equipped with pagers for parents, loving staff, and age-appropriate toys and gear. It is important that parents take a pager or leave a cell phone number when signing in your little one so that you can be contacted in case of an emergency.
Bible-based day camps are offered during Bartlesville Public Schools’ Fall Break, Spring Break, and Thanksgiving Break.
Each summer, First Church hosts Project Transformation, a high-quality, structured literacy camp for underserved children in the Bartlesville community. First Church also hosts Kanisa Camp, a Christian-themed summer day camp, open to all children.
Club 456 is just for kids in fourth, fifth and sixth grades. Tweens get together on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings to learn about the faith.
