Children's Ministry


The Children’s Ministry of First United Methodist Church seeks to instill a love for God through the building of faith in our children, as we study scripture, love others, and seek the Lord with our hearts and minds.

Sunday Mornings 9 AM in Children’s Wing

We provide a nursery for all Sunday Services, Sunday School, and many other church functions.

Sunday School

We are thrilled about a new Sunday School curriculum that we hope your child will be a part of on Sunday mornings from 9 AM. Our new curriculum, Orange, gives real-life examples and applications to our children as they learn to follow Christ in their daily lives. The Orange curriculum presents the stories of the Bible in a hands-on fashion that gets our students excited about their relationship with God. Be watching for our Parent Cues that continue the conversation of the Sunday morning Bible lesson around the dinner table, on the way to soccer practice, and before bedtime. 

Nursery Sunday School 

Infants: Our infants receive wonderful care from our loving nursery workers. Orange reaches even the youngest of lives, as our babies are told that God made them, God loves them, and God wants to be their friend.

Toddlers (2-3 yrs.): Our toddlers participate in fun crafts and engaging stories through Orange. The three basic principles speak to this age group as they learn that God made them, God loves them, and God wants to be their friend. 

Pre-K (4-5): Our Pre-K children experience foundational stories from scripture through our Orange curriculum that give them the opportunity to create through crafts and storytime. These children learn the key elements that God made them, God loves them and God wants to be their friend as they enjoy games, crafts, and music!

Elementary School 

The Orange curriculum provides a wealth of activities and life applications for our elementary-aged children. They have the opportunity to learn foundational Bible stories with activities that help them apply valuable lessons to their everyday lives.

Classes are divided by:

  • Kinder-Second Grade
  • Third Grade
  • Fourth-Fifth Grade
