Children’s Sunday School classes are for ages 4-12. All classes meet every Sunday at 10:00 am in the Education Building. There is also a nursery available to care for your children (birth to 3-years old) during Sunday school classes and both worship services. 

We offer children's activities and childcare on Wednesday evenings during our Small Group programs.  If you are interested in having your child join us on Wednesday, please contact the church office in advance.

Our goal at First United Methodist Church is to maintain a safe and secure place where our children’s needs are met in responsible ways. With this goal in mind, we’ve set up policies to guide children and youth activities. In this way, we allow them to grow in a loving environment and protect them from potential abuse.

All adults working with children must be Safe Sanctuaries trained and at least 18-years-old. Additionally, all staff and volunteers working with children must complete a background check every 2-5 years.
