FUMC - 1st Kids Ministry

The 1st Kids Ministry is for children birth to 6th grade. We provide nursery care, Early Christian Awareness, Sunday School classes, Children’s Church, Vacation Bible School, summer camps, family events and more to the children and families in our congregation. Our goal is to show and teach the love of Jesus to every child in our care. Our ministry is heavily dependent on volunteers. We usually print a calendar for families in August that has our list of activities for the school year following so our calendar generally runs August to August.

There are three separate areas within 1st Kids: Nursery and Preschool (birth to PreK4), Elementary (K5 to 4th grade), Step Up (5th and 6th grades). You will find different activities and events based on a child’s age year round.

Nursery and Preschool in the Children’s Ministry Center offers childcare each Sunday from 8:00am to 12:30pm. Preschoolers attend Sunday School and Children’s Church while their parents are in Sunday School and at church.   Childcare is also available for most special events hosted by the church with an RSVP.

Elementary classes and Children’s Church are in the Dawson Building on the 2nd floor. Sunday School is from 9:45 to 10:45 each Sunday. Children’s Church is after the children’s message in the service until church is over.

Step Up is a preteen ministry for 5th and 6th Graders located in “the Loft” on the top floor of the Hunter Building. In addition to regular Sunday School classes from 9:45 to 10:45, there are monthly on-campus and off-campus social activities. Step Up is for the “in between age” children where they are no longer little and they need to be introduced to what being in the youth group will be like.
