Children are a Gift from God

We are here for your children all year. Below are ways your children can become more involved in their relationship with God, peers and this congregation. For more information, contact Angela Schroeder, Director of Children’s Ministries.

Sunday Morning Kids Ministry

This summer, FUMC Kids Ministry is Making Waves! Every week during the 9:30am Sunday morning service, kids in preschool through sixth grade are invited to join us on the third floor to enjoy games, activities, videos, music, and more as we learn about Making Waves in God’s Kingdom. When you arrive on Sunday morning, enter the building through the doors under the portico by the parking lot. Then take the stairs on your left or the elevator down the hall to the third floor. Drop off and pick up are in Room 303.

Family Picnic in the Park | Saturday, May 14, 12–2pm


Bring the whole family for a community picnic in Van Dyke Park’s Lower Pavilion on May 14. From noon to 2pm, we’ll grill up some food and play yard games as we reach out to the community. Most of the food will be provided, but feel free to bring a dish to share if you like. If you have any lawn chairs or lawn games (like corn hole), we invite you to bring those too. Hope to see you there!

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
