Each child is a precious gift from God, and parents play such a vital role in the formation of faith in their children's lives.

We want to partner with you, now more than ever, to build a firm foundation for a lifetime of learning about who God is, why we follow Jesus, and how the Holy Spirit lives within us.

Learn

Below are some great ways for kids to keep growing in their faith, even when we're apart. Watch the age-appropriate videos, below, with your kids. And, don't forget to take a look at the Parent Guides and Godtime Devotions for kids, to find ways to learn and grow in faith together with your children.

Live

We want to keep learning about how much God loves us and the ways in which He is leading us to live our best lives. Come learn more on Sundays, either in person on the first Sunday of the month, or on Zoom for the remaining weeks. Whether in person or online, we'll check in, catch up on our past week, share highs and lows, learn our Bible story, play some games to reinforce the lesson for the day, and, pray for one another. It's always fun to hang out with friends! Email Jane Roscoe, Children's Ministry Director, at children@fpcnapa.org for the secure link to join us. 

Love

Don't forget that God LOVES you! He calls us to go out and do the same.

May

It's May! Hooray! With incredible spring weather there is no better time to get going, and growing in faith, and Run the Race with your friends at First Pres Napa!

Growing in faith is not something that happens by merely cramming more information about the Bible into a child’s brain. All of that knowledge in their head means nothing if we don’t help kids experience what that knowledge can do in their hearts. To fully experience faith, we want kids to practice their faith. And that takes COMMITMENT: making a plan and putting it into practice.

God keeps all His promises and puts His plans into action. He did that by sending us Jesus! And because God has followed through on those plans, we get the chance to be with God forever. How awesome is that?!

How can we show God thanks? We reflect God’s commitment to us when we can make a plan and stick to it. This month, we’ll help kids discover that one of the best plans they can make is to commit to an ongoing relationship with Jesus. Commit to practicing faith by:

READing God’s Word,

PRAYing to Him consistently,

TALKing about Him with friends, and

LIVING out that faith every day.
