At First United Methodist Church, we are nurturing children's growth in grace through a developmentally appropriate environment. Our Children's Ministries offer opportunities to grow in and learn about God's grace all through the year; through Sunday morning studies, summer camps, missions, and the Learning Tree Preschool. Please explore our offerings and contact Laura Painchaud, Director of Children's Ministries with any additional questions or for more information.
