Children’s Ministry


At First United Methodist Church, we believe that our children are our most precious resource. Our staff and volunteers are committed to the spiritual, physical, social, and intellectual development of all our children. We want children to know that they are special. We want them to learn that they are God’s children and that He loves them.


We have a wide variety of activities for our children, including Sunday School, Wednesday Night Bible Time and Choir, as well as fun outings and trips.

Sunday School

Sunday School meets from 9:45-10:45 a.m. each Sunday morning.


A nursery is provided for Sunday Morning Worship Services, Sunday School, and on Wednesday nights. Toddlers to three-year-olds meet in the children’s wing downstairs classroom.

Children’s Classes

Pre-K thru First Grade classrooms are located in the new building, downstairs.

Wednesday Night Bible Studies

Prior to 6:00, children can participate in fellowship upstairs in the large gathering room.

All children are picked up in the back parking lot while the drive-thru is unavailable.  Once this is repaired, children will be picked up there.

Extra Activities

Each year we hold special events for our children, including a Fall Festival, a Birthday Party for Jesus, and an Easter Egg Hunt. The children also participate in choir musicals at Christmas and at the end of the school year. Throughout the year, children will have other mission projects and fun activities in which to participate.
