Learn and Grow

At Pekin First no matter your age, you will find many opportunities to discover who God created you to be.



Sunday School

Sunday School is taught at 9:30am in a combination of small and large group settings. We focus on bible stories and learning how to apply them to our daily lives. We use videos, crafts, and fun activities to learn the Bible stories and help them come alive in a way that is relevant.
