Children's Ministries

First Methodist Children's Ministry is called and dedicated to love, support, teach, pray for, and model Christ's love to all children. We strive to provide an environment that:

  • Teaches children that Jesus loves them no matter what! 
  • Encourages children to develop a relationship with Jesus.
  • Gives children a strong foundation in Scripture
  • Offers worship and prayer opportunities
  • Develops a foundation for building a "servant heart" and to provide opportunities to love and serve others



Sunday programs

Here at First Methodist, we provide a variety of programs for children on Sundays. 


Infant/Toddler Nursery (ages 0-3)

Safe and loving care is provided for babies and children from 0-4 years old during all Sunday worship services, adult Sunday School, and  Wednesday night activities. 


Sunday School (ages 4 years-5th grade)

Fun and exciting classes are offered for all children from ages 4 -5th grade. Classes are broken up by age and meet on the 3rd floor of the Education Building. 


Children’s Church (ages 4 years-5th grade)

Children are dismissed during the worship service and led to Youth Hall. Children will engage in worship, crafts, Bible teaching, and games. Parents pick their children up following the worship service. Children’s Church is available during the 11am Bridge Worship Service each Sunday, with the exception of the first Sunday of each month due to Communion, where children are invited to participate in Communion with their families. 

Wednesday Night "real Life"

Children's Choir under the direction of Gabe Martinez.

Every Wednesday 6:15 - 7pm


Children's Day out

Children's Day Out  (CDO) is a Children's Ministry of First Methodist for ages 4 months to pre-school. It's MORE than a daycare. The purpose is two fold. We minister to parents, grandparents, and guardians by providing a "day out" and time of refreshment. We also minister to the family and their children by providing a happy, loving, and Christ-centered environment for the children. It is our goal for each child to increase in his or her knowledge of God, laying a foundation to live a life worthy of the Lord. 


When: Monday and Wednesday from 9AM-3PM
