During the scholl year, children from kindergarten – 6th grade are picked up from Malvern schools in the church van and transported to First Church. Students from schools outside Malvern as well as home-schooled children are welcome too. The children enjoy recreation from the time they arrive until 3:45pm. Snack time is 3:45 – 4:00pm. Then the children are divided into three classes: Kindergarten and 1st graders, 2nd through 4th graders, and 5th & 6th graders. They have Bible study and life application time until 5:00pm. Parents are asked to pick up their children at 5:00pm unless they have another church activity that evening such as Children's Choir.

Children's Choir:
From 5 – 5:30pm on Wednesdays, children meet with music teachers in the Children's Choir room in the Education Building to practice. Parents are asked to please be certain to pick-up their child/children at 5:30pm.

Vacation Bible School

Each Summer First Church has Vacation Bible School to bring as many children as possible together for 5 days to let them meet other children, have fun with activities, skits and singing and to come to know the Lord more closely through lessons and examples.

Other Annual Events

Easter Egg Hunt, Fall Festival, Malvern Christmas Parade, Children's Choir Christmas Caroling, other special events.


Partners in Faith
Every child and youth in the church is partnered with an adult (or in the case of infants with a youth) for the purpose of receiving special prayers and recognition from someone in the church family who is not otherwise related to them. Each year a Sunday breakfast is held where both the child and adult prayer partner enjoy a meal and fellowship.
