The Children’s Ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale provides a place for teaching and guiding children through their faith journey with love, compassion, and tons of fun!

The Children’s Ministry also offers child care services during worship. We look forward to sharing them all with you and your child in the Children’s Ministry!

Do you have parent only activities?

A: Yes! We know it can be difficult to get a little ‘me time’ and ‘couple time’ and that is why we provide activities for parents as well as fun activities for the whole family. Here are a sample of the programs we offer (see our calendar for more):
