Sunday School


Welcome to First Church! Thank you for choosing to learn more about the Sunday school program here. You should find it to be inviting, interesting and fun. This page will help you and your parents become acquainted with the Sunday school, one part of a Christian education ministry which also includes nursery care, confirmation, youth fellowship and adult studies.


There are four simple ways to register for Sunday school:

  • Print out and complete the Sunday school registration form and mail it to First Church Nashua, 1 Concord St. Nashua, NH 03064   Att: Diane Matthes
  • Call the church office during the week, 882-4861
  • Stop in to the Sunday school office (on the 2nd floor of the Walker Building) any Sunday morning
  • During the month of September, stop by the Christian education table in Fellowship Hall right after morning worship.

You will be asked for the following: Parents’ names, address, home and work telephone numbers, your name, date of birth and grade, and whether or not you have been baptized. There is a space to write any other information that the teachers should have, such as allergies, special concerns, who can pick you up after class (other than your parents), etc.

You register only once in your life. Each year, your records are moved up to the next class. If something changes, your address, allergies, etc., please call the church office.

What Class Will I Be In?

First Church follows the Nashua public school system, with September 30 as the cut off birth date for children entering the next class.

There are  classes for 3-year-olds through grade 9.
