Here at First Metropolitan Church we understand the importance of instilling a strong biblical belief base in our children. It is to this end, that we have several programs dedicated to helping our children learn about God’s love. All our children ministry volunteers have completed training and a background check through MinistrySafe.

The mission of Solid Rock is to provide a Christ-like, fun-filled and loving environment where God’s love can be felt in the hearts and souls of our children.  We are biblically based, as we lead children to have a Heart for God, a love for others and to live a Christ-centered life.

Solid Rock Children’s Ministry is available the 2nd thru 5th Sundays during 10:45 am service, and is divided into age and grade appropriate groups.

  • 3 & 4 Year Old Pebbles
  • K & 1st Grade Rocks
  • 2nd & 3rd Grade Stones
  • 4th & 5th Grade Boulders
  • 6th Grade Teen Talk

Solid Ground is available to children 8 weeks thru 2 years each Sunday during 7:45 am and 10:45 am services. We impact the spiritual growth of babies through bible stories, songs, and purposeful play. Each activity is designed to instill a high regard for God, themselves and others.

Sunday School provides a teaching ministry to reach, teach, and win the children to Christ and to mature and train them for Christian service. This ministry offers age-appropriate, scripture-based lessons and activities designed to teach children about the meaning of scripture, discipleship, and the Christian faith.  Our programs offered:

  • Preschool Playhouse – Crawlers (ages 3-5)
    • Preschool students are at the beginning stages of learning and trusting in Jesus as their Savior. Children at this age learn that church is a safe, friendly place where they can learn about the love of God.
  • Primary Street – Walkers (ages 6-8)
    • Children grow their faith and understanding of Jesus and the scriptures through stories, scripture and activities that encourage their participation.
  • Junior Way – Sprinters (ages 9-11)
    • Consist of contemporary stories, scripture passages, and extra activities meant to help enforce lessons and learn how to apply them.

There’s a lot happening on Wednesday nights for youth at First Met. Our Wednesday Night Activities run from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM. Come join the fun!

Jubilation Station for Pre-K thru Elementary School Kids is the place! Children will experience:

  • fun, friendship, and a chance to meet and grow in Jesus
  • a connection with other children
  • weekly Bible stories and lessons through crafts, games and movies

Save Our Sons (SOS) is the mentor program targeted at helping young men ages 7-12 learn what it means to be a Godly man in today’s society. This is done by partnering each boy with an older man who teaches them chivalry while being a support for the young man to lean on.

God’s Little Daughters is a mentor program focused on helping young ladies ages 7-12 learn what it means to be a Godly woman in today’s society. Since its launch in 2015, this successful Christian-based mentoring program continues to serve girls, ages 7 – 12. To date, 42 girl mentees and 37 adult mentors have connected, developing bonds of friendship, love and spiritual growth.  Within this 8-week program, we hope to inspire each girl to:

• demonstrate respect for her mind, her body, her parents and others in authority
• participate in church activities and acts of service to help others
• make positive life choices based on Godly principles
• be equipped to offer mature and Godly advice to her peers, and
• most importantly, always keep God the center of her life

Program sessions are packed with lively discussion, fun hands-on activities and character-building workshops designed to strengthen the mentee’s mind, body and spirit.
