children's ministries

“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:14


At FUMC we hold children to be our most precious resource. Your children will find an exciting place of fun, fellowship and learning in a safe environment. In addition to the special events listed on the following pages, we offer a variety of opportunites for learning and service. Please explore them all and we'll see you here soon!

  • Worship

    Acolytes

    Children in 3rd – 6th grades are trained to be worship leaders through assisting in the worship service. The acolyte serves by lighting and extinguishing the candles on the communion or altar table at the beginning and the end of the worship service.
