First United Methodist Church
Friday, May 24, 2013
Children become disciples of Jesus Christ through a lifelong process of living and loving. Our comprehensive ministry offers opportunities for children infants through 6th grade to grow in their relationships with one another, the world, and Jesus Christ. First United Methodist places a high priority on Children's Spiritual development. We strive to shape the foundation for a lifetime of love, service, and Christian fellowship. Our curriculum offers learning experiences where children learn about the nature of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. They also learn how to apply Christian principals to daily life.
