Summer is in full swing at the Child Care Center and I am very excited to announce the beginning of a new Summer Reading Program that will be led by Miss Angie. Starting June 12, Miss Angie will be at FCC Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am - 2pm to read with kids individually or in small groups. Her heart is to work with kids who may need help learning to read. Miss Angie's primary focus will be Kids Club, Ladybugs and Heroes. However, she is open to reading with children of any age who want or need help.
This program will be in conjunction with the Edmond Public Library Reading Program. This means that children who participate may be able to earn free books! For more information or to express an interest for your child to participate, please contact the Day Care office at 341-2626.
If your child will be attending Day Care in the 2018-19 school year, please let our front office know as soon as possible. This will help us plan for appropriate staff and activities next school year!

We also ask that all school age children bring a refillable water bottle every day.

A Message from Rev. Micah
We are really excited about so many things happening behind the scenes at First Christian. We are working on a new curriculum for our Children’s & Student Ministry. We hope you will be a part. This curriculum has awesome parent resources that will help you bring the conversations of faith to life at home – whether it is in the car, at bedtime, or just simply while hanging out – this new curriculum has awesome resources for all phases of life. We invite you, as parents to connect with other parents in the same phase as you through two new Facebook groups made just for you!
Facebook Group for Parents of Middle & High School Students - This is a new group to connect and resource the student parents of FCC Edmond. Our goal is to support you in the beautiful (and complicated) job of being a parent! Click here to find the group.
Facebook Group for Parents of "Littles" and Elementary Children - This is a new group to connect and resource the parents of FCC Edmond. We are excited to celebrate that each of the precious kiddos in our community is created in the image of God. Click here to find the group.
We hope that you will connect with other parents and find these awesome new resources made just for you!
