At Palmyra First, our children are a vital part of the life of our church. In all of the programs that we provide for our children, our goal is to help them grow in faith and to develop as true disciples of Jesus Christ who will make a difference in our world.

“Discovery Dunes” children’s Ministry at 9am. The fun starts with music, action and bible, as we adventure into faith themes.  The morning is filled with hands-on activity.  The goal of “Discovery Dunes” is to partner with parents, introducing kids to Jesus, and challenging them to live like Jesus in this world. Everybody’s Welcome…kids for the fun…families, to partner and help…teachers, to guide…helpers, to make it come alive!  This is for kids 3 years old through 5th grade. Our Nursery (Infant through 2 years old) is also in full swing. Put it on your calendar!  Contact the church to say “How can I help?” at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Nursery is staffed on Sunday morning from 8:45 am until 12:00 for all babies and toddlers and is located on the lower level of the church with cribs, a changing table and age appropriate toys.

We are a Safe Sanctuaries Church.
This designation is given to a church that is intentionally committed to providing a safe, loving and nurturing environment where children can grow in their faith and fulfill the mission of Children's Ministry, which is to become a disciple of Jesus.  As such, we have adopted a high minimum standard for our ministry to better ensure children will not be physically, emotionally or sexually abused while in our care.
