First Kids

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:

  • Loves God and is 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, in their home, and in the world.


Sunday Morning Programming

Elementary: Lessons available every Sunday on Facebook.

1st – 2nd grade Every other Wednesday join us on Zoom.

3rd – 4th grade  Every other Wednesday join us on Zoom.

5th – 6th Grade In 56 at First, our fifth and sixth graders enter a time of curiosity and decisions. We provide a safe place for our kids to explore God’s grace, His character, and the traditions of our faith. They are encouraged to begin applying these lessons to their own Christian lives. At the end of sixth grade, our children are given the opportunity to confirm their faith in Christ.

Lessons on Facebook Live every Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
