Throughout the week, our children's ministry echoes with the sounds of children who are learning to love God in prayer, play and song. On Sunday morning, kids ages 4 years - 5th grade learn Bible stories at 9:45 AM Sunday School on Kids' Street and then all learn to worship at their own special 11 AM Children's Chapel Service.
On Wednesday nights throughout the school year, children ages 4 years to 5th grade gather at 6 PM for FUMC Kids' Choir, and then from 6:30 - 7:30 PM, children ages 4 years to 5th grade go deeper in learning the scriptures during our Kids' Street Activities.
NURSERY & PRESCHOOL
During all worship services as well as during Sunday morning and Wednesday night children's programming, nursery care and preschool activities are available for children ages 6 weeks - 3 years.
Throughout the year, we also celebrate special events such as Vacation Bible School, Palm Sunday Celebration, and Back-to-School Bash. We take any excuse we can to have fun and praise God!
All our nursery workers, teachers, and volunteers receive training in the United Methodist Church Safe Sanctuary Policies to ensure our children and families experience a worry-free and wonder-filled time here at FUMC.

Our youth are a vital part of our congregation - learning, serving, and growing and faith just like everyone else. We have our own dedicated wing in the Crossroads Center, and we love to fill it up!
Our biggest gathering happens every Wednesday night when we come together from 6-730PM for Summit. For an hour and a half, we hang out (with video games, pool, and ping pong to pass the time), play crazy games, and turn our attention toward God with a youth-centered worship service of contemporary music, an inspiring message and lively discussion ins small groups.
Sunday morning is for Sunday School at 945 and 11AM. This is where we have a chance to really dig in as we look into the Bible and have an open discussion on how it affects our life.
We don't just love to gather; we also love to go! Some of our best times happen during our yearly retreats and mission trips. We might go anywhere - from Panama City Beach to Haiti to our own surrounding neighborhood. Wherever we go, we carry the joy of Christ in our love for one another.

We believe that every age is a good age for growing in the grace of God, and we have many different groups where adults can learn from and encourage each other as they learn from God.
Our Adult Sunday Schools meet at 9:45 and 11AM every week, in classrooms throughout our campus. These are a great place to develop lasting relationships and deep friendships. Many of these groups are full of people who are of similar age and who can share in each others life and experiences.
From August-May, we also offer Wednesday Study Groups. These groups meet for 7-9 week terms to study a particular topic, or a book of the Bible. They might talk about finances, marriage, cultural issues, prayer, or any number of other things. Each group generally includes folks from a wide range of ages and backgrounds. It's a wonderful way to meet new people and learn to see God in new ways.
We also have monthly men's groups, women's groups, and weekly daytime bible studies. Whatever your schedule, there's somewhere for you to get connected with God and with other people.
For more information or help in finding the best group for you please call the church, or email April Hight at firstname.lastname@example.org
