Our mission statement is Believe, Belong, and Behave
We BELIEVE in God the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit. We BELONG to God, this community, and this church. We BEHAVE as Jesus would, towards our teachers, our friends, and ourselves.
This mission statement is the basis for everything that goes on in our children’s ministry. From the fun we have, to the mission projects we do together, everything is done to glorify God and reiterate what we believe, where we belong, and how we behave.
Sunday School is from 10:00-10:50 a.m. and is available for children Pre-K through 5th grade. Parents can drop their children off in the Gathering Room at 10:00 a.m. The Gathering Room is located at the top of the stairs in our children’s wing. We have a short gathering time together before we split off by age groups for class on 5th Sundays and during the summer, all ages come together in the gathering room for combined Sunday School. In this Large Group/Small Group setting, discussion amongst different age groups encourages fellowship and a unified sense of spiritual growth.
During each service on Sunday Morning, preschool-1st grades are invited to Children’s Worship located upstairs in the Children’s Worship room. During this time, Bible stories are not only told, but experienced.
Wednesday Evening Fellowship
Wednesday nights during our WEF season (Fall-Spring), children’s ministry is busy with activity. Each age group rotates every 30 minutes to choir, gym, and a short lesson. This is a wonderful time for learning and fun.
First United Methodist Church’s Children’s Ministry offers so many wonderful events for children and families alike to enjoy. One of our most popular events is Parents’ Night Out... a fun-filled evening for the kids and a night out for the adults! Vacation Bible School, Summer Fun Days, Polar Bear Swim, Mini-Fest Music Camp, and an Easter Egg Hunt are just some of the exciting events going on in Children’s Ministry. Come join us!
Every year, the Children’s Ministry takes on a mission project. Whether it is collecting peanut butter for RIFA or donating items for an Angel Tree at Christmas, FUMC knows that children can play a part in missions. Another opportunity is The Kids Who Care Club, a service organization for our 4th and 5th graders. The Kids Who Care Club has made scarves for the homeless and raised money to purchase a cow through Heifer International.
