Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

Christ First UMC is committed to providing a loving Christian learning enrichment program for students aged 7th through 12th grade. Our program will give them encouragement and confidence to transition successfully into young adulthood and will teach them how they can develop a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ.
God has created each individual with unique abilities, special talents and individual needs. We believe that each individual 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 

Sunday Mornings

Children's Chapel (ages 3 - 12th  grade)

Children's Chapel: scheduled on *Non-Communion* Sunday mornings after the Children's Sermon until the end of the worship service (roughly 11:15am), joining in the Sanctuary and traveling to the Chapel together. Children will learn to host their own worship service by learning the elements of a worship service, their meaning, and the United Methodist tradition for them. Complete with exploratory message, Children's Chapel will feature a short lesson relating to Pastor Jenni's message so families have the opportunity to share in what they learned. During the first Sunday of each month (Communion Sundays), children will remain with their families to experience our traditional worship service and partake in Eucharist.

Liturgical Dance (all ages welcome!)

Liturgical Dance: scheduled alternating Sunday mornings from the end of     worship (roughly 11:15am) to Noon. Children will prepare dances to perform during the worship service at high Holy times. Praise leader schedule announced at a later date. Meeting in room 209.
