We create the opportunity for kids to learn how to Love God, Love Others, and Love Life!

***Due to COVID the FUMC community is not meeting in person. BUT, we are hosting wonderful live Zoom calls for children every Sunday morning at 9:30 am. 

We have a Young Children’s Ministry (birth- K), a grade school Ministry (1st – 4th) and a Pre-teen Ministry (5th and 6th grade).

For Zoom details please email robin@fumc-a2.org

During our Sunday Zoom calls we will continue our Large Group & Small Group format. 

Sample Schedule for 1st-4th:

9:30-9:40: Large Group presentation of the story 

9:40-10:10: Small Group breakout rooms based on age

10:15: Back to Large Group for closing prayer

Each Sunday all Children’s Ministry programs will be learning the same stories as what is being covered in the adult service so that families can grow their faith together. 

We hope you’ll join us!
