Everything we do and everything we fail to do is part of our children's faith development and education as Christians.
Our Seekers class is church school for middle and high school aged youth. These young ones meet in room 207 Sunday mornings 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The class is taught by three persons dedicated to their love of Christ and their love of children. They believe it truly takes a village to raise a child and they show these impressionable youth the love of Jesus Christ through their words and deeds.
Cathy Caldwell is a retired teacher from the Paris school system and continues to show her love of children by teaching church school and accompanying this age group on outings and helping with other aspects of youth ministry. Greg Smart is an engineer at Lockheed-Martin. He volunteers his time teaching church school and with our youth ministry as well as being a dedicated Cub Scout leader. Greg is also a Worship & Wonder storyteller. Tracy Parker is the Associate Minister at First Christian Church and has a ministry dedicated to the faith education of children and youth. She particularly enjoys working with pre-teen and teenaged youth.
The scripture which guides the educational ministry at First Christian Church is Matthew 28: 19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you…"
