To worship is to experience awe in the presence of the Living God. Children and adults learn more about God and more about themselves. Our worship services are family friendly. A children’s message is a special time set aside for children. At First United Methodist children are always welcome in worship and never a distraction. We understand that 5-year-olds will not behave as 50-year-olds.
Children from infancy through four years old are welcome too in our professionally staffed church nursery.
Children from five through high school learn to ring chimes and handbells as well as singing in a choir.
