children's ministry

Our mission

At Faith United Methodist Church, our desire is to partner with parents in the most important aspect of their children’s lives—that is, their growth and purpose in relationship with Jesus Christ. Through worship, Sunday school, and Bible study, we create fun and meaningful avenues for your children to learn that God created them, God loves them, Jesus wants to be their friend, and God can be trusted to help them make wise choices and treat others with respect. We strive to collaborate with parents during each phase of their children’s lives in sending these important messages home.

  • Sunday Mornings - K-5th Grade*

    9:00 am - Children can participate in a children's moment during service that is coordinated with the Pastor's scripture lesson for that week.


    10:00 am - Children can join their age-specific small group Sunday school classes found in the main hallway with a classroom number and targeted age group above the door.


    11:00 am - Elementary students can begin in the worship center with their family/guardian or sit with other children in the back, left section of the worship center by the IGNITE banner. After a couple of songs, the Worship Leader will announce when it is time for your child(ren) to leave the Worship Center and the Children's Director will lead the children upstairs (above the nursery wing) to Kids Worship (IGNITE). Also at this time is  Pre-School worship (SPARK) in the nursery for children ages 3-5. Pre-school children who are attending SPARK must be checked in by their parent/guardian in the nursery wing.


    *Look for special Worship Packets at our Welcome Centers for your child which includes activity pages that are aligned with the theme for that month's Sunday school and worship lessons. Your children are always welcome to join you in Worship!

  • Nursery and Childcare

    Faith provides nursery care for infants through pre-k from 8:30 until Noon on Sunday mornings. Faith also provides childcare during weekday adult studies and special events. All nursery staff have been properly trained and facilitate a loving, nurturing environment for the children that attend.

  • Wednesday Bible Study 6:00-8:00 pm

    3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are invited to attend an evening of food, fellowship, worship, and Bible study during the school year. Dinner is $3 and starts at 6pm. Worship starts at 6:40 above the nursery wing in the IGNITE room and is followed by games and Bible Study. Pick-up starts at 8 in front of the annex.


    Each fall, all  3rd graders who begin attending Midweek Bible study are presented with a personally engraved Children's Bible. This is a big event in the life of the church. Families are encouraged to join us in specially wrapping them, joining us for a special breakfast, and then the presentation of the Bibles in service.
