A Message from the Senior Minister
There is no more important job in any church than helping children understand God's love for them. We are thrilled that you have chosen to have your children participate in our ministry. You can count on our Children's Ministry team to show the love of Christ to your children in every way possible. We are so glad that you and your family are here!--Rev. Kent Ingram, Senior Minister, First United Methodist Church
Kingdom City, a Bible Time Village, is located on the 2nd floor and has been prayerfully designed to be a place where children can experience Bible stories and worship in an interactive environment.
If you are a new visitor to our church, we want to meet you and your children! We invite you to register your children at our welcome desk located at the entrance of Kingdom City. This desk is staffed with friendly greeters who will register your children, answer questions, and do whatever possible to make you and your child feel comfortable. Please come by and introduce yourself!
It takes many dedicated people to create a ministry that meets the needs of our children and families. We are always seeking people who believe in the spirituality of children and who are capable of loving, listening, and respecting their uniqueness as children of God. If you are interested in volunteering or discussing where you fit within our ministry, please contact our Children's Ministry Office at 719-884-2473 or Rev. Dr. Leanne Hadley, Associate Minister to Children and Families (email@example.com, or 719-884-2466.)
