Children are the future of our church. To help them grow in their faith, we offer many age-appropriate opportunities for children six weeks through sixth grade, including Sunday School, Sunday evening programming, special events and mission opportunities. Our goal is for them to have fun while learning about the Bible and the importance of serving God and others in a safe environment. Unless otherwise stated, activities for children take place in the C Building (click here for a campus map). For their safety, children must be signed in and picked up by an adult. For the most up to date information, make sure to connect with us on Facebook.

United 5:6

Growing up is not easy and pre-teens need a place of their own where they can fellowship and grow. United 5:6 helps fifth and sixth grade students go deeper in their faith and prepares them for the transition into youth ministry with events like Sunday School, weekly programming and mission opportunities specifically selected to meet their needs and interests. In United 5:6, students have fun while learning more about the Bible, discipleship and how to treat each other with kindness and respect. They also learn to serve others through mission projects at the church, in our community and beyond. For information, contact Cristi Moore (cmoore@firstumc.org or 863-682-1912). Make sure to connect with United 5:6 on Facebook and Instagram.
