HIZ-KIDZ: Children's Ministry

Children’s Ministry


We are excited to introduce to you our new Director of Children’s Ministries at First Church… 
Stephanie Harper joined our support staff in June 2017. She brings to her position many years of children’s ministry experience. Stephanie, and her husband, Minister Duawn Harper, live in Morganton, North Carolina.


VALUABLE: HizKidz Ministry provides an age-appropriate ministry for children in kindergarten – 5th grades. Make sure your child connects with the same friends and great leaders at the same hour each week. The HizKidz program is dismissed during our Sunday Worship that begins at 10:30am.
QUALITY: We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, how God’s Word fits in to their lives, how to build lasting friendships with others and making wise decisions.

DEPENDABLE: The care of your children includes great leaders that show they love the children in this ministry. Be assured that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children. Each leader is screened with an interview and background check.


Each year we assemble a team of children to meet regularly and study a particular book of the Bible.  In 2016-2017, we are studying 1 and 2 Samuel, “Live for the King”!  They are learning facts about these two books and are also memorizing Scripture verses. This will culminate with the Bible Bowl competition in the spring of 2017.  Trophies, prizes, recognition, fun for all in celebration that we have the Word of God hidden in our children’s hearts! 
Please contact us if you have any questions.
