Here at FUMC our children are provided a loving, fun and safe environment in which children of all ages are able to grow their faith in God.


NurserySingingA Nursery is provided for children ages infant through 5 years old at both our 9:00 am & 10:30 am services. Our nursery is always staffed by two caregivers with years of childcare experience.


We have a Sunday School program during our 9:00 am service. We meet in the sanctuary at 9:00 am and sing the first hymn with the congregation. We then have a "Time with the Children" where we invite the children forward and share a brief children's message. All the children are then escorted to either the Nursery or Sunday School class rooms.





In both our Nursery and Sunday School we provide the children with a lectionary-based lesson from the "Whole People of God" curriculum. The children are able to participate in the worshiping community of our church through lessons, music, crafts & activities on an age appropriate level.


Special Events include an Easter Egg Hunt, end of year picnic & pool party, Christmas Pageant, Live Nativity, and Mission & Outreach Projects. These events and many more are held throughout the year for our children. The events are designed to give the children opportunities to be in ministry for Christ.


Our church has a "Safe Sanctuary" policy in place which means teachers and leaders of children and youth must have a background check and training in child protection policies. Two adults must be present for any class or activity. We urge all parents to take the "Safe Sanctuary" training so that they are aware of our church policies.
