Sunday Morning Kids Ministry

There’s plenty to look forward to this fall at Grow Kids Ministry! For kids in fourth through sixth grade, we’re bringing back the Holy Moly program. This program focuses on one Bible story each week and invites kids to explore how it applies to their lives. For kids in preschool through third grade, we have a new program, Godly Play, based on the work of Dr. Jerome Berryman. During this time of worship, storytellers share stories of God with the kids using physical materials and guide kids to explore these stories with “I wonder . . .” questions. Afterwards, kids will have time to respond to the stories and build their faith through play. To learn more about the Godly Play program, click here.

Fall Serve and Celebrate

October 22 | 2:00pm

 

Join FUMC as we celebrate the season of fall and serve those in need by packing UMCOR Hygiene Kits and Flood Buckets that will help provide for basic needs of those affected by natural disasters. Whether you’re nine or ninety, this is an easy way for the whole family to serve together and help others while also having some fun with games, crafts, a giant inflatable obstacle course, and a snack from the food truck. This event is open to everyone, so invite a friend to come serve and celebrate!

For Parents

As caregivers sometimes, it may be tricky to find ways to help kids spend time with God on their own, in an age-appropriate way. Here are few ways:

  • Use a good Bible translation
  • Teach kids ways to pray throughout the day
  • Play kid-friendly worship songs
