Christ’s Kids Club equips the youngest generation of believers to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word
and to experience and share the love of Jesus Christ!


Sunday School

First UMC offers Sunday School classes for children in PreK-5th grade.  Each class is divided by age so that your child will receive an age-appropriate experience that includes praise and worship, a Bible lesson, drama, hands-on activities, media, games, and crafts!

We have a Sunday School class for each of the following age groups:

K-1st grade

2nd-3rd grade
4th-5th grade


Would you like to know more about what your child learns and experiences while in Sunday School?
Visit and click on the “Parents” tab to see what our GPS (Grow Proclaim Serve) curriculum is all about!  It is our desire to see your child’s faith “grow by leaps and bounds!”  If there is any way we can encourage and come alongside your family to nurture your child’s spiritual growth, please let us know!  Contact us at


Children’s Church

Following the Children’s Chat during our 11:00 a.m. worship service, PreK-1st grade children are invited to Children’s Church!  This takes place in the library, just down the hall from the entrance to the sanctuary.  During this time, children will hear Bible stories, learn scripture and participate in crafts and fun activities that reinforce the lesson.  Children are brought back to the sanctuary during the closing worship song at the end of the service.

First Family Nights

First Family Nights are an 8-12 week series of Bible studies and classes for children, youth and adults that take place every fall and winter.  Check out the First Family Night page to see what we have in store for Fall 2014!



Nursery care is provided for children who are 6 weeks-3 years old during all worship services, Sunday School classes, and First Family Nights.  Our dedicated nursery staff will be sure that your little one has a fun multi-sensory experience in a safe environment created with their safety in mind!

New families are asked to fill out a special contact and care card the first time their child visits the nursery.


Safety Matters

For the security of our families, all children must be checked in and out of their classes by a parent or legal guardian.
The Christ’s Kids Club check-in desk is located in the Family Life Center through the Third Street main entrance.
New and visiting families are asked to register their information so their children may be added to our check-in system.

All staff and volunteer workers are screened and trained through Safe Sanctuaries.  For a copy of our local church Safe Sanctuary policy contact the church at or 417-532-7153.
