Children's Ministry


This summer we will be having Mom's Day Out opportunities on three dates. These three Wednesdays--June 5, June 19, and July 10, moms or dads may bring their child to spend the day at our church under safe sanctuary adult supervision from 9 am-3 pm. We will have playtime inside and outside, a craft, and story time along with a simple lunch. We will need to be contacted ahead if you are going to participate in this event and there will be an emergency information sheet to fill out. There is no charge for this event.

Wonderful Wednesday -

Wonderful Wednesdays will start again on Wednesday, September 4, 2019

Wonderful Wednesday is a great way to involve your children in learning about the Lord and developing their faith. We will have two bible studies for children this year from 6-6:30 pm then a game time from 6:50-7:15. There will be a class for preschoolers from age 3 to 5 (prekindergarteners) . There will be a class for Elementary age children Kindergarten thru grade 5. Children's Bible study is led by Karen Miller, Jamie Bukovac, and Leslie West.

Joy Singers and Joy Ringers Meets during Wonderful Wednesday during the school year--will resume next fall.

The Joy Singers is a music ministry for children. Practice is held on Wednesday nights in the Sanctuary from 6:30-6:50 p.m. The children learn songs with a focus on God and faith to help them in their development. It is our hope that the messages of these songs will be internalized and will stay with them in their hearts forever. The Joy Ringers involves the children with playing hand bells to Christian music. The bells are numbered, and the children follow the cards held by the director, in order to know when to play.

The Joy Singers and Joy Ringers groups are under the direction of Jan Hankinson, and accompanied by Janet Heim.

Puppet Ministry

Puppet ministry is an opportunity to learn how to use puppets and give our congregation a Bible message through our puppet ministry. The puppet crew usually perform every 4-6 weeks in both services. It is open to older elementary students and youth. This group is led by Karen Miller. This group meets during the school year and takes a break during the summer.

Vacation Bible School at FUMPC 2019

We invite your children to join us at VBS on July 22-26 for “To Mars and Beyond VBS”. Our event will be each evening from 4:50 pm-8:00 pm starting with a simple meal followed by all kinds of events. Your students will enjoy an interactive, energizing, Bible-based good time as they explore where God’s power can take them. They will become Voyagers and discover how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives.

After a high-energy Opening Assembly time, Voyagers make their way to the Bible Story Station. Interactive Bible lessons reveal Power Launcher (key learnings) to equip them for an active life with God. Your Voyagers will also discover our Vector Verse (Bible memory verse), Ephesians 3:20 – Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us!

Students will expand on their discoveries by making their own art projects at the Craft Station, singing new songs at the Music Station, exploring the wonders of creation at the Science Station, playing games at the Recreation Station, and enjoying tasty treats at the Snack Station. Along the way, the Voyagers will hear about our mission project and respond to a call for action!

Blast Off on this Epic Adventure with Us!
