Children's Sundays

Encourage your child to serve in worship!  We need kids ages 5 - 12 years old who are willing to serve in worship as greeters, ushers, liturgists, acolytes, and more during our Children's Sundays.  Children's Sundays are on the 2nd Sunday of each month in the 8:15 and 10:45 Traditional Services and on the 3rd Sunday of each month in The ConneXion Service (our contemporary worship service).

Email Michelle Wilkins to sign up your kiddos!

wednesday After-school Kids

Our Wednesday after school program for 1st - 5th graders typically runs from the first Wednesday in September through the middle pf March .  Classes & activities are he;d on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:30 pm (with the exception of holidays, and a few select dates). We can pick up students in 1st-5th grade from Park Magnet, Lakeside Primary, Lakeside Intermediate, and Lakeside Middle School and transport them from school to our church. A light snack will be provided. Parents pick up @ First Methodist in the Christian Life Center - 218 Pratt Street at 5:30pm.

W.A.K. kids experience large group & small groups, plus game time. Large group will consist of children's dramatic Bible story & scripture reading, video that coincides with Bible story, and large group prayer. Then children will be released to their small groups. Each small group will have 2 adults: one teacher and one crew leader who will help the kids dig deeper into the monthly virtue. They will use creative object lessons and classroom games to show the kids how the weekly Bible stories apply to their daily lives and what God is calling them to do. Our prayer is that your child forms a deeper relationship with Christ through this ministry. We also pray that they will form some new and lasting friendships with their leaders and peers while they are here.

There is NO FEE for W.A.K., but we do have a maximum limit for each small group.
