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.


  • 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!

L.I.F.T Kids

“Leading in Faith and Truth”


We love watching our kids become all that God has created them to be! They are not our future leaders; they are leaders now! Here at FUMC Kids, we strive to help kids discover, develop and use their God given gifts to bless others. Each week, 3rd-5th grade LIFT Kids leaders serve their peers in every area of ministry. They are also partnered with adult and youth mentors who help them to develop their leadership gifts. If your kids are interested in joining LIFT Kids, or you would like to know more information, please contact Natalie at childrensministry@fumc-clermont.org.


Children's Choir Launch - POSTPONED - TBD

We love inspiring kids to use their gifts to praise God and serve others through Children's Choir! With each meeting, our dedicated leaders are helping kids to learn the how, and why, we sing about Jesus. Then, when kids put God's Word to song, they learn Scripture in memorable ways and share that Good News with others! 

Our Choir meets seasonally and performs during the various services! We would love to have you join us!

Our preschool choir – Joyful Noise – is open to all preschoolers ages 3-5.

Our elementary choir – Hallelujah Singers – is open to all kids in K-5th grade.

To sign up CLICK HERE

Children’s Choir will meet Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:30 PM - Be on the lookout for upcoming dates and sign-ups! Hope to see you there! For more information email childrensministry@fumc-clermont.org.


We are using a lemonade stand theme this month to welcome in the warmer days and introduce preschoolers to the amazing truth that God loves me. We want preschoolers to know that God has put a lot of planning and creating and love into each of them. And, just like you can’t separate the water from the sugar from the lemon juice once you mix them, NOTHING can separate us from God’s love. 

Throughout the month our preschoolers will hear how the Bible teaches us that God made us in His image, has a plan for us, and will never stop loving us. So, think a lot of love and a little lemon – mix it all together and we will get an entire month of God loves me! Our prayer is that every preschooler will walk away knowing that God made them and God loves them. And NOTHING will ever change that!

Throughout the Bible, we read about all sorts of people who showed determination in the face of hardship and difficulty. They relied on God’s strength to get them through it. Even Jesus Himself endured through the pain of the cross so that we would be able to have a forever relationship with God. When it comes to the situations in our own lives, God gives us the Holy Spirit to empower us to keep going, even when life gets difficult.

  • 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
