First Kids

Once your child begins elementary school, they move into our First Kids ministry. We love God and want to help kids know Him better! No matter whether it’s a regular Sunday or Wednesday program or a special event, we have a great time planning action-packed, God-glorifying activities for our First Kids. Learning about God and how to give Him glory is fun and exciting at First Kids, and we want to help you and your family be a part of living for the glory of His name!

VBS Registration

Sound the buzzer—spirit week is in session at First Roanoke. LifeWay’s 2018 VBS invites your kids to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline, your players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook. He wants them to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another. Get in the spirit with Game On! June 18-22 from 9AM-12PM.
