This is where you'll find information about all the awesome ministries available at First Assembly. If you see this page and it hasn't
been updated, a gentle reminder to the church staff at First Assembly is in order. Let them know you want to learn more about what is
happening at First Assembly and how you can get involved.
During the first six years of life, little children can learn to ask God for help, to tell God their joys, to thank God
what they like about Him, and say, "God, I'm sorry." All the ways that young children talk with family and
friends, they can learn to pray to God.

The Kid Zone
Kids are all about having fun. It's their occupation in life. They're fully committed to it and will work hard to
accomplish it daily. If they aren't having fun somewhere, then they will move on to something or someone else
that does have fun. It's the secret sauce that makes it possible to win their hearts in ministry.
Our goal at First Assembly is to have fun while learning about God. This is at the core of everything we do in
"The Kid Zone". So come have fun with us!

Our Royal Rangers boys' ministry groups meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm in various facility
classrooms. Under the strong and caring leadership and examples of godly men, boys are mentored, earning
merit badges and achievement awards as they learn about how to live a life that honors Jesus.
Royals Rangers is an activity-based outdoor program seeking to develop the total boy for Christ according to
Christ's example (Luke 2:52). Royal Rangers provides boys and young men the opportunity to discover and
develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, while learning teamwork, leadership, and a variety of
outdoor skills. An individual's progress may be represented by his progress along a structured advancement
program where recognition is given for his progress toward each advancement level.
As the boys progress through our Royal Rangers program, they complete advancement steps toward earning
awards that are presented at quarterly Council of Achievement ceremonies. The ultimate goal of a Royal
Ranger is to earn his Gold Medal of Achievement, presented at a special ceremony.
A highlight for the whole church is the annual Pinewood Derby, where boys and adults alike can craft a race
car and compete in a fun evening of racing.
Come be a part of this exciting program as we work together to reach men and boys for Christ through the
ministry of Royal Rangers. For more information on Royal Rangers, contact Chad Lanning at
