Children's ministry reopening update!


Hi FUMC Families!

 

I am excited to announce that our Children's Ministry returns this week! We will be open beginning Thursday, December 10.

 

Thank you for your patience with us as we have been keeping a close eye on Covid during this season. We will continue to monitor things and make plans accordingly. Your family's safety is of the utmost importance to us.

 

As our Kid Zone reopens, please remember to email your RSVPs within 24 hours of the service you will be attending. These RSVPs allow us to gauge attendance and plan the necessary staff and accommodations. We also ask that you and your child (3 years and older) continue to wear your masks and practice safe social distancing.

 

It is a joy to serve you and your family as you seek to connect with Christ and community this Advent season! See you soon!

 

Blessings,

Natalie Zook

Vision Statement 

Connecting Kids to Christ

 

Mission Statement 

We strive to connect kids to Christ by providing a safe and fun environment where they can develop and understand their faith, connect with other believers, and put their faith into action.



Connecting Kids to Christ

(for children 0-5th grade)


We “Think Orange”  by partnering with parents to disciple all of our children. We believe that two combined influences have a greater impact than either influence could alone.  That’s why our church loves the color Orange.  When we combine the light (yellow) of the church (us!) with the heart (red) of the family (you!), we get a stronger, more vibrant color.


WE PARTNER WITH YOU TO HELP YOUR CHILD:

  • See God for who He is
  • See themselves the way God does
  • Love others the way God does

Sundays at FUMC Kids

We LOVE Sundays at FUMC Kids! Each of our services begins with an energetic large group experience that will captivate your child’s attention and teach them more about God and His Word – the Bible! Following large group, kids shift into small group environments designed to connect them to Christ and others through age-specific games, activities, prayer, and discussions. All are invited to join us at 9:30, 11:00, or 11:11 AM. We look forward to seeing you!   

preschool

This month is going to be Out of This World! We are going to use this fun and exciting theme to help teach preschoolers about the most amazing thing ever, which turns out isn’t a thing at all. No! He’s a person! You know who I’m talking about – Jesus! We are teaching preschoolers that Jesus is amazing! And, we’re doing it by sharing stories about some of Jesus’ amazing miracles.

 

Jesus displayed an amazing understanding of God when He was at the temple as just a young boy. The people who heard Him were amazed! Jesus calmed a storm with just a word. Amazing! Jesus filled fishermen’s nets with fish. Amazing! Jesus healed a blind man with mud and spit. Amazing!

 

This world, well this universe, is filled with amazing things, but nothing will ever be more amazing than the One who created it all. Jesus is amazing, and we want our preschoolers to know it!

GOD VIEW: The Connection Between Responsibility and God’s Character, As Shown Through God’s Big Story

 

The psalmist wrote, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,” (NIrV). God is the author of creation, and God has entrusted us to care for and cultivate it. We do that by taking responsibility. From the work we need to accomplish to people we meet to the words we use; life is filled with moments where we can decide to reflect God’s character, take responsibility, and use what we have wisely. When we follow through and do what needs to be done, we can point others to Jesus, the One who took the ultimate responsibility for us and made it possible for us to be with God forever.

WHAT CAN THE PARENTS DO AWAY FROM THE CHURCH?

  • parent cue

    What is a Parent Cue?  It's a prompt.  It's a whisper in your ear: "Talk to your kid about this," or "Why not try this at dinner tonight?"  A nudge to talk about God, faith, life or to just have fun together.  


    Connect to God's story.

    Uncover something about life.

    Experience something together.


    Parent Cue provides several different ways for you to use key times in your day; like mealtime, driving in the car, bedtime or just when you’re hanging out, to remind your kids about what they’re learning and to share what they think.


    There’s even an Iphone/android app  called PARENT CUE that helps you wherever you are! You can also check out TheParentCue.org
