Led by our Children’s Director, Allison Earhart, our FUMC Littles group is growing and going. We have monthly events for parents with children ages 0-5 years. Our goal is to provide parents with a space to develop community with other growing families.

1st Sunday of the Month | 10 am

Children First is a unique worship service that occurs on the first Sunday of every month for families of all ages. We follow a traditional order of worship including affirmations of faith, holy communion, offering, a scripture lesson, prayers, and group singing; all centered around a common theme for the month. We gather for worship from 10 am – 10:45am in the Sanctuary. Please join us!

Children First  | Accessible to children | Meaningful for adults

  • The foundation of our Sunday school classes is to nurture children and offer them knowledge, skills, and values to grow into adult followers of Jesus Christ.
  • Kindergartens meet on the first floor in Hines Hall. 1st-6th graders meet upstairs in the children’s wing .

This program is for students grades K-6. Does your child enjoy music? We would love for them to join us on Wednesday evenings, starting April 14, 5-6pm to sing, drum, and do everything musical together! These children will be our worship singers for Children First going forward.
Masks are required and we will be spread out in the choir room.

Every month we like to do something just for fun. All FUMC Kids are invited for fun actives from 4-5:30 pm.

Some actives include water games, ice cream nights, pumpkin painting and much much more!

Join us for “Living Well with Jesus” Vacation Bible School! This year we will be learning about how God calls us to live healthy lifestyles. Not only learning about a healthy mind, body and soul, but healthy ways we can take care of the earth and people around us. We love learning about God’s love of others through mission. This year we will be working hard to benefit students all the way in Haiti. We look forward to sharing more details with you as we draw closer to VBS 2021.
