First kids - where kids come first!

At First UMC we want to make sure that our littlest followers of Christ are taking all the right steps toward him. What can you expect:

  • Space for Children on Sunday. We have nursery care for our youngest children during all worship services on Sunday. We also have a “wiggle space” in the Narthex where parents can take their children if they would prefer a place for the kids to play quietly during the service.
  • First Kids Worship and First Kids Connect. Our Sunday services welcome children, but at 9:45 and 11:00 we have a worship and learning experience just for them.
  • Vacation Bible School. Every week in the summer we host an amazing Vacation Bible School, a great time to teach children about the amazing love of God. 
  • Special Events throughout the year. First kids is always up to something! There are special events nearly every month.

Rise is for our rising kids who are almost teenagers. We meet on the 3rd Sunday monthly from 4:00-5:30pm. 

We have designed a group specifically for 4th & 5th graders to help them have fun and grow in the Lord.

Rise events include most of the First Kids events and some additional ones:

  • Monthly Meetups – We meet once a month for faith, fellowship and fun. We almost always have a mission project that we help support. 
  • RISE Camp – We have a special camp for Rise in the summer. It is a ton of fun and includes lessons on faith, games, food, and getting out and making a difference in our community.
