Our Mission

The Children's Ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Gulfport strives to lay a firm, gospel-centered foundation that our children will be able to build upon for years to come. We strive to be intentional with our method and substance in teaching about Jesus, his teachings, and his love. We are a ministry for all children, working hand-in-hand with parents and guardians to teach God's Word.

Bible Club begins at 6:45 p.m. During Bible Club, children will be reintroduced to their Sunday School lesson from The Gospel Project in a different way. This includes videos, music, activities, and games. They will also complete a journaling activity in order to respond to each week’s lesson. Sunday School and Bible Club fit together, but are also meant to stand alone in the event that a child cannot attend both.
