Childrens Ministry

At First UMC we strive to fully partner with parents to ensure that every child grows up with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Combining the love of family (red) and the light of the church (yellow), we aim to fully embrace the orange strategy. We are committed to synchronizing the efforts of the church and family around God’s master plan.


Waumba Land (Infant-Pre-K)

Waumba Land is our weekly environment created especially for your infant (six weeks) through preschool-aged children. We can’t wait to meet them! We know things are busy at this stage of life and your children are learning and growing in amazing ways. We are ready for them!

We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with preschool children. So, you can plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Be on the lookout for fun crafts and big games.

We look forward to helping your child learn more about God.

It is our hope that your child will learn:

God MADE me.
God LOVES me.
Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever.

What We Do:

We partner with you for the spiritual growth of your child.

We plan a full hour for your child that includes centers, Bible stories, songs, crafts, and games.

Pre-K children will meet in room 204 each week learn about God in meaningful and

developmentally appropriate ways through hands-on activities.

Infant-3s will meet in 208 and will participate in “Large Group” for their Bible story and worship.

Waumba Land programming is available Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45am, and     Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm.  (Waumba Land staff is available for child care each Sunday during the 8:30, 9:45, and 11am services. Programming will be offered during the 9:45am service.)


Bibletown:  (K-5th Grades)

In Bibletown we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick:

I need to make the wise choice.

I can trust God no matter what.

( )

I should treat others the way I want to be treated. The focus in Bibletown is our small group environment. We want kids to see how God’s Word fits in to their lives, to learn how to talk to him, and to build friendships that will last.

Bibletown programming is available Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45am, and Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm.
