At First United Methodist Church, we’re intentional about making God real and relevant in reaching every child with God’s truth. Our Children’s Ministry intentionally and creatively reaches out to raise up a generation of individuals who know and love Jesus and learn how to share Him with others by offering the Children’s Conversation, Children’s Church, Sunday School and a variety of children’s events throughout the year. For more information, please contact Chris Ward at
