First Kids partners with parents to help children experience God, grow in the Christian faith, and share God’s love with the world. We strive to meet children where they are at every stage of development. It is our prayer that each child here at First Methodist:
– Love God and are empowered to share the love of Christ with others;
– Grow in their understanding of the Christian faith and Scripture;
– Serve as the hands and feet of Christ in the church, their home, and in the world.
