First Methodist Church wants to partner with parents on the journey of spiritual growth for your children from preschool through 5th grade. Our greatest desire is to help families and their children “Believe in Jesus Christ, Belong to the family of believers, and be disciples who know their scriptures and live them in our world”. We look forward to sharing this faith journey with you and your child!

Sunday School

Children age 3 years through 3rd Grade are a part of Children’s Sunday School. We use “Deep Blue” curriculum from Cokesbury. On Sunday mornings, the kids participate in worship and class time. The curriculum features a 3-year scope and sequence for 3-year-olds, 4-5-year-olds, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. It also includes parent devotionals, talking points, and an mobile app that allows kids to play games with memory verses, as well as a parent portion with insights on lessons and biblical points. Sunday School is at 9:15 AM.

Watch for the following opportunities throughout the year:

  • 1st & 2nd Grade Sacraments Camp: First and second graders get to participate in a yearly sacraments camp where we learn about the sacraments of the church: communion and baptism. In the Methodist tradition everyone of any age is always welcome to participate in communion. A special opportunity is provided at the end of the class for children to participate in a celebratory “First Communion” experience.
  • 3rd & 4th Grade Bible Camp: Third graders receive a bible every fall and then 3rd and 4th graders have a special opportunity to attend bible camp. It is a Friday/Saturday night at Glen Lake Church Camp where kids will get to learn about how special the scriptures are and how they are relevant in their lives.
  • 3rd & 4th Grade Bible Class: After returning from Bible Camp, 3rd and 4th graders, get to participate in a get to know your bible class. Our Curriculum spans 8 weeks and is called “Learning to Use your Bible.” There is a parent guide and a student reference book to aid in joint study of scripture as well as personal discovery. The class is open to 4th graders who have not previously attended.
  • Kids in Mission: Every fifth Sunday, children kinder through 3rd grade are invited to join us for a special mission project. After the children’s sermon during the 10:30 AM service, staff and volunteers escort children from the sanctuary to the children’s area to participate.  Tweens  are invited to be Junior Helpers during this time.
