FUMC  Kids!

Jesus said,
"Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Our children’s ministries seek to capture children and families in our church
and in our community with love, to help them find God, to understand his love for them
and to mentor new disciples for Jesus Christ.

Sunday School


We have Sunday School for preschool – 5th grade starting at 9:30am every Sunday in the Children’s Ministry Center.

During this time, we hope to help the children learn about God’s grace and His will for them
as they grow in their faith.

Sunday School lessons consist of hands-on Bible crafts and discussion of scripture.

infant & toddler nurseries

Our nurseries, located in the Children’s Ministry Center, provide free child care to parents so they may attend church events and worship services.

Child care is provided in the Infant Nursery
for children 0 to 2 years.

Child care is provided in the Toddler Nursery
for children 3-5 years.

Our nursery caregivers are trained in First-Aid/CPR and are highly devoted to helping your children enjoy themselves in a loving, Christian environment.

"Food Truck Party" VBS invites children 3 years through 5th grade to get on a roll with God as a parade of Food Trucks rolls into FUMC for the summer's biggest party!
We invite children to pray as Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:11; "Give us this day our daily bread." These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God — and that it's by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met.

basic training camp

July 23-26, 2023
Serving current
3rd - 5th graders

This 4-day, 3-night retreat at Cathedral Oaks Worship & Retreat Center in Weimar gives your current 3rd - 5th grader  the opportunity to experience God through worship, games, friends and much more.  
All activities will be supervised by adults from FUMC and surrounding churches, with high school and college students assisting as junior staff.  
There are  50 openings for campers – 25 girls and 25 boys. 


Our acolyte program is open to all children 3rd through 5th grades during the 10:40am traditional worship service.

The program was created to give children an active role in worship. Normally the acolyte serves by lighting and extinguishing the candles on the communion or altar table and distributing and collecting the offering plates. At the discretion of the pastor, the acolyte may also assist in other portions of the worship service.


Children will sing, use rhythm instruments and learn very basic music theory skills.

The purpose of the class is for children to begin to experience the good news of Jesus Christ, His great love for them,
and the basics of Christianity,
such as God as our Heavenly Father, grace, prayer and forgiveness.

Cherub Choir is for children 
ages 3 – 5 years

Dinner church

The simple explanation is that it’s church, but over dinner. What seems like a radical departure from tradition is actually a return to our Christian roots.
