The Children’s Ministry Team warmly welcomes you to First United Methodist Church Children's Ministry. We invite you to become involved in the many Christ-centered programs offered in a loving, nurturing and supportive environment. Jesus said; “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 19:14).
Our mission is to train and nurture children so they may be filled with the light of Christ and may SHINE Christ's glory wherever they go.
S: Study God's word
H: Help others
I: Involve families
N: Nurture a relationship with Christ
E: Equip to share the gospel
Study: Teaching children God's word through purposeful, age appropriate lessons and activities.
Help: Helping children learn to serve the church and the community.
Involve: Partnering with parents to encourage and teach children about Christ.
Nurture: Building a real, lasting and portable faith that is based on God's word and His plan for salvation.
Equip: Preparing children to share their faith with others and live it out in the world.
Children are one of God’s greatest gifts to us and we try to provide a variety of programs and activities that will introduce a child to a life of faith in God. We offer childcare and programming for nursery age through 5th grade.
