Your children are very important to us at The First Presbyterian Church of Skaneateles! The Bible tells us that children are a gift from God. At The First Presbyterian Church of Skaneateles, we want to partner with you, the parent, to train your children for God's purposes. As children learn from the Bible and experience God's love both at home and at church, the message of God's love for them is reinforced, giving each child an opportunity to move into the future with a solid faith foundation. Thank you for the privilege of partnering with us to help your child develop a love of Jesus Christ! We believe the programs and curriculum in our classes and ministries are truly good for your family.
If you have questions about what we offer here for children and youth, please feel free to contact the church office
