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.
Journey Kidz Sundays School
8:45 – 9:45 am
Preschool children go directly to their classroom in the Fellowship Hall.
Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade gather at 8:45 in the Fellowship Hall for a few minutes of fellowship and lesson introduction before going to their classes. Teachers and Assistants in each class use the Deep Blue Curriculum to teach the scriptures and its application to life.
A nursery is provided for infants to age 3 during this time also.

We offer a midweek program for Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Mission Possible Kids runs from 3:30 – 5:30 each Wednesday that school is in session.
