Children and Families

The vision of Children and Family Ministry is to:

  • GROW in Knowledge
  • LOVE God and Others
  • SERVE thru Action

Church is for kids! We want children to know that First United Methodist Church is their church. It is a place where they can have fun, build lasting relationships, and experience the love of Jesus Christ.

Sunday School

Sunday is our “Main Event,” and we hope to see you every week! It is our goal for children to experience scripture in action, not just in study.
