making and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world

First Kids

Welcome to First Kids! Fun, safe, age appropriate worship for kids!
On Sundays at First UMC, we offer interactive programs for children ages 0 through 6th grade during our 9:45 service.

First Kids Elem.
Where our elementary aged kids (1st through 6th grade) sing songs, listen to a Bible Story, and build relationships with a consistent Small Group Leader who knows their name and wants to build a relationship with them. To give a summary, this is an age appropriate style and vision for kids to be challenged to grow and experiment with Jesus!

First Kids PreK
Where kids (3 years old through Kindergarten) can sing songs, hear a Bible story, make crafts and play games. To sum it up, the kids will have fun learning about Jesus!

Nursery childcare is also provided during our 9:45 service for all kids ages 0 through 2 years old. The Nursery is open for parents to utilize during our 8:30 & 10:45 services as well.

At First UMC, we are transitioning to a computerized check-in system that identifies each child with a unique code. This allows us to easily and anonymously communicate with you if your child needs your attention during the service. You will be given a printed tag with the number on it after checking your child into First Kids. Please keep that tag and bring it with you to pick up your child. If you do not have your tag, you will need to print another one before picking your child up.

In addition, we’re streamlining our emergency medical release to keep it on file with your child through our church management software. Please take a moment to feel the form out online and it will go straight to our office: Kids Emergency Medical Form

Safety is a priority, so thank you for helping us keep the First Kids’ areas safe!
