United Methodist Children’s Ministry

FUMC’s normal worship services and programs are currently suspended due to COVID-19 containment. This is a great time to check out our live stream worship at 10:30 am Sundays or browse our online activities page for other content and ways to connect.

Sunday School

Every Sunday at 9:30 am

PreK-K: Room 121 with Matt Olive

1st, 2nd, & 3rd: Room 117 with Dottie Whitley and Helen Sanders

4th, 5th, & 6th: Room 114 with Summer Tatom

We utilize the Heartshaper curriculum. Start kids on a journey of faith that lasts a lifetime! This Bible centered curriculum helps kids build relationship with God and takes kids through the entire Bible at least 5 times before 6th grade.

 

Children’s Church

Every Sunday during the morning worship service

Younger children head to their worship service after the Children’s Sermon. There they interact with a Bible story, respond to the message in age appropriate ways, and create a craft.

 

Turbo Tuesday

Tuesdays Afterschool – 5:30 pm during the school year

K-5th grades
School pickup available for most area schools
Join us on an adventure! We learn Bible stories through memorizing verses, conducting science experiments, making crafts, playing games, enjoying snacks, and more. Our Children’s Choir also meets during this time. Although this ministry is free, registration is required.

 

Confirmation

Springtime

Retreat, weekly meetings, and a special Sunday
5th-8th grades
Can only go through once
For us at FUMC, confirmation is a time to learn more about our particular way of living out our Christian faith. It is a time for children to learn how to become leaders in our congregation and to step into the fullness of our membership vows. It is a time to be baptized for those who have not been already, and it is a time to remember their baptism for those who have. Overall, it is a special time in our faith journey where we grow deeper in our relationship with God.

 

Yearly Events

Easter Egg Hunt, VBS, Back to School Bash, Fall Fest, Spring & Christmas musicals, & much more!!

 
**Due to COVID-19, we have been unable to meet in person. Online we have been creating a weekly Family Devotion and Craft video that be recreated at home. We also have a Turbo Tuesday Facebook Group where Turbo lessons and other family friendly activities have been posted. We are also releasing a free Children’s Sunday School lesson every Saturday on the church’s Facebook page. The lesson comes to us from Cokesbury’s Deep Blue curriculum since they are temporarily suspending any copyright claims. Our Confirmation classes will resume either later this year or next Spring- exceptions will be made for our “only go through once rule.” If you have any questions about any of the above, please feel free to contact Pastor Kathy.***
