Sunday School

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Christ First UMC is committed to providing a loving Christian learning enrichment program for school aged, Kindergarten through 6th grade children. Our program will give them encouragement and confidence to transition successfully into more complex concepts and  programs, while teaching them how they can develop a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ.
God has created each child with unique abilities, special talents and individual needs. We believe that each child should be provided an opportunity to develop each of these areas in a Christian environment.
“You  shall teach these words to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house; when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” Deuteronomy 11:19
