Children's Ministry

First UMC offers programs for kids who are 6 weeks old through 5th grade. Your children will be in a safe and fun environment with staff and volunteers that can't wait to share the stories of our faith with your kids.  We offer children's programming on Sunday mornings weekly on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.  Through out the school year and summer we also host Mission Days for kids, field trips, and fun annual events for families, like our annual Pumpkin Party.
