Children's Ministries

at First UMC of Gulfport

Children’s Sunday School classes are for ages 4-12. All classes meet every Sunday at 10 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.  To learn more about our Children's Wednesday Night events, contact Tracey Capelety.

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.
