Christian Education



Nursery service

10:00- noon  Traditional Worship Service

For years, our nursery ministry has provided a “play-date” for little ones while parents worship.  Currently a paid staff person serves in the nursery during the traditional worship service. 

For your child’s comfort and safety: You must sign your child in and out each week.  We also recommend that you provide us with your current cell phone number on the nursery’s sign in sheet, and set your cell phone on vibrate.  This allows us to call you if there is a need.   Diaper bags should be clearly labeled and hung-up.  Please include two clean diapers along with personal clean-up items.  We’ll take care of the rest. 

If your child is bothered by your leaving, you are welcome to stay.  The traditional worship service can be heard beginning at 10:30a.m. in the nursery via speakers or 1290AM, WNIL, on the radio. 



Youth Worship Services

Youth are active in worship! Youth occasionally lead worship in the sanctuary. These have an element of fun, but carry a deeper message applicable to everyone.

Sunday Morning Christian Education


                                     Martin Luther

       On January 7th the adult Sunday school class begins a study into: Luther; Gospel, Law, and Reformation. Although the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting 95 Theses on the church door at Wittenberg was October 31st of 2017, it seemed like a good idea to members of the class to begin a study of Luther and his role in the Reformation as the end of our study of the New Testament.  This study will lead us to John Calvin and others responsible for the founding of Reformed Churches such as the Presbyterian.

    As always we invite anyone interested to join us.  A weekly outline will be available and it isn’t necessary to be present each week to take part. If you haven’t been to our adult Sunday school or if you haven’t been in some time, we invite you to come and be part of what has become a family of believers exploring the making of the Bible. Class is held from 9:15 to 10:15 with coffee starting at 9:00 following the 8:00 worship service in the chapel.  Each week we’ll see a 30 minute DVD lesson by Professor Phillip Cary followed by class discussion. You may take interest in how Luther came to believe in reforming what he saw as abuses in the Medieval Church and how his understanding of Scripture led him to lead a major movement in Christianity. Please join us.   


Other Small Groups

Reflection Class -

If you walk into the First Presbyterian Church of Niles on a Thursday morning around 10:00 a.m. you will hear lots of laughter coming from the Parlor.  15-20 participants are gathered to share theological readings, and explore their faith together.  They share together their faith experiences, prayer concerns and the joys that fill their lives.  It is always a wonderful time of sharing as they discuss God’s ongoing presence in each of their lives.  We invite you to join us in the Parlor each Thursday at 10:00 a.m.


Coffee and Conversation -

Adults of any age, but especially those in the last third of their lives, are welcome at Coffee and Conversation, a monthly forum for discussing the issues people face as they age and providing support and encouragement along the way. Topics can range from advance directives to rediscovering who you are after retirement. Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Watch the church calendar for specific dates, topics, and times.




Wild and Wacky Wednesday - We meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month form 4:30-6:00 p.m. to show your child how much God loves them.  Children Kindergarten through 5th grad will have fun with their friends playing games, amking crafts and singing songs about familiar Bible stories. Youger children are welcome to stay with a parent or guardian helper. Check out our Wild and Wacky Wednesdays group on Facebook here:
