The United Church of Christ has a long history of educational excellence. We believe that life-long learning is important and offer a variety of educational opportunities for all ages.
Faith Explorations – Mondays at Noon
Led by the Rev. Dr. Douglas Lobb, this group explores contemporary biblical scholarship, ethics, and new discoveries in archaeology and history as they pertain to progressive Christianity. They use books, DVDs, and articles to help learn about the newest research into the life and times of Jesus. You are welcome to join this group if you enjoy being challenged by diverse ideas about religion and faith. The group meets for approximately 90 minutes each Monday at noon at the church.
Contemplative Prayer & Communion - Tuesdays @ 5pm

EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH
Nursery Childcare (Sundays from 9:45-11:15 am for infants-2 yr olds)
Our Nursery Childcare room is a safe and loving environment staffed by a Nursery Teacher and faithful members of the Boise First Community. Age-appropriate comfort, play and gentle learning is tailored to meet the needs of each child. All members of our childcare team are loving and kind, well known in our church and have passed our denomination’s background checks.
Sunday School (Sundays from 10 am-approximately 10:50 am – all Sunday during the program year except the 1st Sunday of the month)
Children of all ages are welcome in our various programs.
Infants and children up to age 4 are welcomed in the nursery. Our nursery is a joyful place for children to play and interact between 9:45 and 10:15 on Sundays.
Preschool children and early elementary school children have summer activities June through August. In September Sunday School classes are offered using the Godly Play curriculum to help introduce our children to the stories of the Christian faith. Children join their families for Communion on first Sundays.
Youth aged 12 and above worship with their families on Sundays. Youth and family seasonal activities are planned throughout the year. Children of any age are welcome to stay with their families for worship when parents prefer to have them stay in the sanctuary.
