First Presbyterian Church of Elko prides itself on its programs for youth of all ages. These programs also offer opportunities for adults in our church family to share their gifts to help nurture the children and youth in our congregation.
Sunday School for children will restart when there are children who would like to come. Classes would be available for pre-school through from 8:45 to 9:15 a.m. in the church classrooms.
The church nursery is open for infant and toddlers ages 6 weeks through 3 years each Sunday during worship services 9:15 to 10:30 a.m. Please ask one of the greeters to direct you to the Head Deacon when you arrive. Cribs, changing tables, and a children’s bathroom are always available in the nursery during church activities.
Our church has Youth Group meetings on the first Sunday of each month at 5:00 in the Fellowship Hall. Call (775) 738-3430 or contact the church via this website’s contact form to request a current schedule of activities planned for our youth.
