Children’s Ministries

FUMC Children's LogoWelcome! First United Methodist believes our children are the future of our church, so it’s never too soon to begin teaching children about the love of Christ. Children infant through sixth grade are welcome. We offer Sunday School, childcare during worship for children through age four, midweek programming, special events and opportunities to serve God and learn about the Bible while having a great time. We also offer a ministry specifically created for pre-teens in fifth and sixth grade called United 5:6.
