Ministries For our Children
Children are the future of First United Methodist Church (FUMC) and the Church at large. It is important for us to provide places for them to learn about the love of God, begin a solid foundation for their lives and to encourage them to be children of God. Here are some of the programs that are in place for the children of the church.
For the safety of all our children, every person who has direct contact with children and youth goes through a thorough background check.

Our nursery is availabe every Sunday morning during worship.
Infants thorugh 3-year old children are welcome to play and learn about Jesus in our secure and fun environment. The nursery is the first room off of the narthex. It is always staffed with two persons.
