First United Methodist Church New Braunfels

Children and Family

Welcome! The Children & Family Ministry Team welcomes and invites you to participate in the many worship, study and fellowship opportunities that are available through this church. Children are a very important part of our church family! FUMC is committed to providing ministries that create a Christian foundation for children. We not only focus on children, but equip parents in their task of raising children in the Christian faith. We are here to serve you, but we encourage you to join us, to share your gifts and graces, and take an active role in this vital ministry.

Sunday Mornings for Kids: 

At FUMC New Braunfels, we enjoy building relationships with our kids!
Volunteers will greet your family at the Lamb’s List Check-In Station and help your children find where they belong for their time with us.

We begin our hour together with a Glory Gathering in the Wesley Hall. This is a special time to greet each other, share our joys and concerns, glorify God in song, and pray.

Pre-K children will be led to their classroom near the nursery by their teachers. Parents are encouraged to worship with their children and bring them to Sunday School at one hour, but at this age, they are allowed to stay in class for the 9:45 and 11:00 hours. The same lesson will be used at both hours.

Kinder – 5th grade children will be led to their classrooms by their teachers. They may either go to the 9:45 or 11:00 hour of Sunday School. At this age, they are learning how to participate in the worship service and attend with their families.

Nursery children ages birth – 3 years are cared for by excellent and consistent paid workers. The nursery is available for all three worship services. These children are not part of Glory Gatherings.
