Children’s Ministry

We welcome you and your children to our church. It is the goal of Jackson First United Methodist Church to provide a safe, comfortable and nurturing environment for your child to learn more of who God is and of his covenant of love to us. We hope to provide care for children while teaching them timeless biblical truths vital to life. We understand by so ministering to them, we minister to families as well.
