Children are Our Blessing!
At First United Methodist Church we believe that all children are a blessing from God and their presence blesses, not only our congregation, but the world. We have a wonderful paid and volunteer staff who are dedicated to helping your child strengthen their relationship with God and grow in their faith!
Be a Blessing
We are also very mission-oriented and believe that being a blessing in the world can transform the lives of others. Whether it's creating cards or gifts for our shut-ins, supporting the ABC School in Bangladesh, filling a trailer with food during lent for ESM (Ecumenical Social Ministries), or collecting items needed for IHN. We always have our hearts open and hands outstretched to love our neighbors around the world and here in our own community. Come serve with us!
Children's Ministries Mission
With God’s help and guidance, the Children’s Ministries of First United Methodist Church, covenants to:
Exemplify the love of Christ whenever children are present;
By providing an interactive environment which is: Sacred and Holy; Safe; physically, spiritually and emotionally respectful;
Acknowledging children as precious and spiritual gifts from God.
And... Where children are invited to:
Explore Scripture and traditions;
Experience God’s presence through prayer, worship and reflection;
Be empowered to use their own reason, spirituality and discernment to integrate Scripture, tradition and experience into their daily lives.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself. ~Luke 10:27
