Welcome to our Children's Ministry Page!

Mission Statement: Making Christian Disciples by teaching children to honestly, faithfully, and openly walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.



*** New! Our Sunday School lessons are now on our Facebook page each week!

Flat Jesus was inspired by the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. Flat Jesus reminds us that Jesus is with us no matter where we are or what we are going through. How is Jesus spending time with you? Take a picture and post it to our church Facebook page, FUMC Kidz Facebook page or email it to

Hands-On Bible classes- Preschool – 5th Grade
9:15 Sunday Morning/ September-May


The Bible comes alive when you teach as Jesus taught!

Just as Jesus used everyday objects to teach eternal truths, Hands-On Bible Curriculum uses fun gizmos that help Sunday school leaders teach so kids understand God’s Word, love it and remember it for a lifetime.

Kids can’t wait to get their hands on colorful, fun gizmos. All of Hands-On Bible Curriculum’s gizmos are designed to connect kids with each lesson and naturally lead them to experience God’s word in unforgettable ways.

Kids will discover God’s truth in unforgettable ways, retaining up to 90 percent of what they’re taught! Kids come back week after week because every class is fun, playful, and packed with active learning.


Kidz Konnection – kindergarten - 5th Grade
