First Assembly of God believes in investing in families, and that includes partnering with you to meet the spiritual needs of every child. When your child comes to First Assembly Kids ministry they will have the opportunity to learn about a God who loves them and has created them for an awesome purpose!
Join Pastor Dominique and CREW Kids Ministries as they teach kids the Scriptures using methods ranging from tickets and prizes, to multimedia presentations and dramas! We call ourselves a CREW because it is so important for kids to understand that going through life alone isn't good for anyone! We will always have a need for God and for each other! We invite you to come and join the CREW!
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in peace! - Psalm 133:1
In our kids ministry corner of the main building we have age appropriate classes for babies on up to 5 years of age. The preschool class for two through five year old children is called Toddler Reef and children in this class are being taught the foundations of Christian faith through interactive playtime, Bible stories, and quality care from our hardworking ministry team!
We are God’s creation. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good works. Long ago God prepared these works for us to do. - Ephesians 2:10
Baby Bay offers quality care from people who love children and will invest not only in physical care but also spiritual care as they care for little ones in the classroom. Though these precious ones are too small to understand a lesson, our ministry team will be praying over your children and showing them the love of God as they meet their every need!
Before I formed you in your mother’s body I chose you. Before you were born I set you apart to serve me. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations. - Jeremiah 1:5
Have a fussy child in church? That is ok. We are ready for you! Just down the hall from the sanctuary is a fully furnished nursery for parents to bring their kids while they calm themselves. This room is equipped so that you can still hear and enjoy the service while you watch your child.
Her children stand up and call her blessed. Her husband also rises up, and he praises her. -Proverbs 31:28
To provide a safe and secure check-in and check-out for your children, we use the Church Center program. You can set up and manage an account right from your phone before you even arrive to our campus! Just download the app, create an account, and search for First Assembly of God - New Port Richey. Then when you're on your way to service you can check-in your child and scan the QR code when you arrive to receive your security tags! (be sure to include their birthday on their profile!) This is a badge with a specific code that matches the one on your child's name tag to present to us at pick up so that we are able to release them to you.
You can get a heads start and add your details before you ever arrive!

Virtual Mission's Trip - In the summer every year we "visit" our BGMC project country through a one day virtual trip.
CHRISTMAS! Every year the CREW kids do some sort of performance for Christmas. This varies from year to year.
Unfortunately in today's society, it is near impossible to keep kids off of the internet. Especially the older end of the kids our ministry serves. While we may not be able to completely keep them off of the internet as a whole, we can give them a safe site to visit with resources for them and you as their parents alike! A safe place full of things for them to use here at church and wherever else they go!
