Children aren’t just the future…

FUMC understands that children are not only the future, but also the present of the church. Children are warmly welcomed into FUMC’s church life. We offer many dynamic programs for children to learn about Jesus as we guide them in their faith to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Come check us out to learn more!


We are committed to partnering with families to continue faith development at home. We are committed to joining with you, the parent, in your attempt to lay down a spiritual foundation that, in God’s timing, will lead your children into a relationship with God through Jesus. Your church family wants to support you in fulfilling your God-given responsibility of starting them on a life-long journey and relationship with Jesus.

Safety is a top priority…

Our vision is to create a safe and fun environment for all children so they can know and experience God’s love. God has called us to make our ministries safe, protecting our children and youth from abuse and exploitation. God has also called us to create communities of faith where children and youth can be safe and grow strong.

Jesus taught “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me...,” (Mark 9:37 NIV) and 

“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
(Deuteronomy 6:6-7
