Jesus said, “Let the little children come unto me and do not hinder them, because the kingdom of God belongs to them.” These words are a reminder Jesus valued children and saw them as a special part of the Kingdom of God. Following Jesus’ example, we value children here at First United Methodist Church and believe they are an important part of the church. Their faith adds to the faith of the congregation. Because of their value, we offer a variety of programs for the children of our church. Take a few minutes to check out what’s happening in our Children’s ministry.
