Children's Ministry

Welcome! Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by: building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these". Here at First Methodist we take great care to help nurture a relationship with Jesus Christ and our children.  We believe it is the responsibility of the entire congregation to support, teach and guide the children of First Methodist into the way that leads to life eternal.   Every week we have multiple activities for the children of our church.  Below is a listing of what takes place here each week.  To learn even more contact Director of Children's Ministry, Children's Minister

Sunday School
We offer Sunday school for children age 3 through 5th grade.  Children are engaged in lessons by participating in songs, crafts, skits and stories. This offers a variety of ways for children to experience God and engage in His word. All classes are located within the Christian Education Center (CEC).  
 
 
Children’s Church
Children’s church is offered for children 3 years old through 1st grade during the 8:30 and the 11:00 worship service. After the children’s message, the children will follow Mrs. Mary King Kurrass to the Kindergarten-1st Grade Room, where they will hear Bible stories, make simple crafts, sing, and play together in a safe, nurturing environment.
 
Infant and Toddler Care
Infants and toddlers are cared for by our professional staff in the two downstairs rooms in the CEC and is provided for all worship services and congregational activities.  Please provide your children's supplies in a labeled diaper bag, sign in on the clipboard, and provide a cell phone number where the staff may reach you if needed.
 
 
Children’s Choir
Children’s choir offers a place for all children to praise God with a joyful noise. Practice is held every Wednesday night from 6:15-6:50 for ages 3-1st grade, and 6:50-7:30 for 2nd-5th grade.  Choir is held in the children’s choir room (CEC). 
 
 
Children's Fellowship
Children age 3 through 5th grade come together on Wednesday nights from 6:15-7:30 to experience wonder and awe at God’s world. Each week a short devotion, crafts and games are used to help children deepen their relationship with God. The class meets in the Christian Education Center across from the nursery immediately following Wednesday Night Dinner. Come and join in the fun!
