Kids Ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Napa
We would love to have your kids join us at FPC Napa! From the nursery to our Kids' Church for elementary ages, kids will experience a safe, age-appropriate environment to learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. Parents, we know how important your role is and want to partner with you to help them know and love Jesus!
Discovery Bay, our nursery on Sunday mornings, is open for kids infant-4 years old.
Kids' Church for those in K-5 meets in person at 10 a.m.. Or, check out the lessons online (below) for you to watch whenever it's most convenient for you! Don't miss out on sharing God's love with your kids--your whole family will be the better for it!
Your first visit in person
Here's what to expect when visiting for the first time in person:
First, find the Chapel next to the Presbyterian Day School entrance on Randolph Street. There we will meet your family and check your child in to our system. Come a little bit before 10 a.m. so we'll have plenty of time to get you checked in. If you would like to check in online ahead of time, download the Church Center App and look for First Presbyterian Church of Napa to get started.
When you check in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s), email, and phone number
- Child's name
- Home address
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
Before Service: You can check in your child at the available kiosk in the Chapel. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and the day of your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will send you a quick text. We ask that you exit the Sanctuary immediately and check back in where you dropped off your child.
Our nursery is a great environment for little ones, ages infant through 4 years old. Our caregivers have been screened and fingerprinted, and follow COVID safety protocols. You'll sign in at the kiosk in the Chapel entrance, then drop off your child close by in the nursery. Please use the sign in sheet as well. We'll text you, if needed, during the service. We want your nursery time to be a loving experience for your child and for you!
What's Happening at Kids' Church in December
For many of us, Christmas lights are the best and brightest part of Christmas celebrations. It doesn’t matter if it’s the high-rises in the big city or houses lining Main Street; when the lights come out, it’s a wonderland! People celebrate big at Christmas because there’s Someone big to celebrate: Jesus!
The best gift God ever gave was Jesus. Because of Jesus, it’s possible for us to have a relationship with God that will last forever. As we remember the Christmas story, we take time to celebrate the greatest gift the world has ever known.
Kids' Church meets Sunday mornings at 10 am in the Chapel.

Meet our Children's Ministry Director
It is an amazing blessing to see children grow and learn! My three children have grown up at First Presbyterian Church of Napa and are now thriving young adults. First and foremost, I would love for your kids to get to know Jesus. Who He is. What He did for us. Why it makes a difference. It will change their lives!
