We care about children! The Children's Staff of First United Methodist Church work to enable the children to better experience and celebrate the love of God.  Through a variety of programs and ministries children have the opportunity to grow as disciples, to serve others, and to know they have a special place in the church family.  Our children's ministries are gathered under several areas.children


Sunday Ministries

Worship - Children are welcome in all of our worship services.  We provide Activity Folders as well as Children's Bulletins for the Sunday morning worship services.  These tools can help children keep focused during the sermon time of worship.  Activity bags are located in the foyer/hallway just outside the entrance to the sanctuary.  A children's sermon with the pastor is included in both of the Sunday morning worship services.

Sunday Childcare - Childcare for infants and toddlers is available during Sunday morning services from 8:30 a.m. until noon.  The nursery and toddler rooms are located in the Preschool Building.  A pager system is available for parents of nursery age children.

Children's Church - Children's Church is provided for children 3 years old through kindergarten during the 10:50 a.m. worship service.  Adults will escort the children from the sanctuary following the children's sermon with the pastor. 

Sunday School - Classes are available for children beginning at age 2.  Sunday School begins at 9:45 a.m. and concludes at 10:35 a.m.  The focus for all classes is an age-appropriate religious education that engages children in their growth as children of God.


Weekday Ministries

FUMC Preschool - The purpose of FUMC Preschool is to provide young children with a Christian environment where they can grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.  We believe that children learn best through meaningful play.  Our goal is to support the development of each child to his or her greatest potential.  We believe this happens in a nurturing environment which fosters mutual respect and appreciates the unique qualities of each individual.  FUMC Preschool holds classes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Please contact the FUMC Preschool Director for more information about enrollment and fees.

Bible Zone Live - Bible Zone is for children 3 years old through 5th grade.  The children meet on Wednesday afternoons during Bible Zone logothe school year.  Preschool Bible Zone is from 2:00-3:00 p.m.  Elementary Bible Zone is from 3:00-5:00 p.m.  Volunteers lead in offering transportation from our local schools to the church, snacks, singing and playing instruments, arts and crafts, and recreation.  Bible Zone children explore God's love through the scriptures and learn the ways of discipleship by leading in worship and sharing in mission projects in the community.  Special events and field trips are also planned during the year.  Call the church office for more information.

Kid's Care Club - Children in grades kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to be a part of Kid's Care Club.  This group strives to be involved in outreach and mission.  In the past we have sent health care kits to UMCOR for persons affected by hurricanes, made baby blankets and delivered them to the hospital for new babies, collected and taken food to the area Food Bank, helped organize it and put it on the shelves, collected dog food and cat treats and gone to the Humane Society.  If there is an interest in being involved in this program, please call the church office and leave your name if you would like to be included in current events.


Special Ministries

During the year there are special ministries for children which include Vacation Bible School, singing in worship, children's handbell choirs, participating in special Christmas and Easter programs, as well as special mission opportunities.  Please visit with one of the children's staff for current information.
