Christian Education

Christian Education at First UMC offers many opportunities for exploring faith further. From Sunday School to Advent Studies, Youth Group and Special Events, we have something to fit your needs and explore your faith.   

Sunday School

We offer Sunday School for children ages 3 and up. Our classes are each taught by two adults from the congregation and we use a variety of curriculum options to keep the kids interested and to continue to see growth in the children's knowledge about our church and their faith. Our value is to bless each child every time they can be present with us.  

Sunday School begins at 9:00am with a Children's Church Gathering Time. We talk about last weeks lesson, or the overarching theme for the current curriculum, we sing songs, celebrate birthdays, take offering and talk about exciting upcoming opportunities.  


We have nursery care available every Sunday morning and for most events or activities on request. Even as young children and babies connections can be made to church and faith. Our children are cared for with a nurturing hand and a loving environment.  Our nursery attendants are CPR and First Aid certified.

Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday School follows the school year calendar. During the school year, we have one active adult Sunday School class that meets at 10:30am each week. This class is often lead by our Pastor.  The curriculum varies throughout the year touching on both Bible study and spiritual growth. Books for this class are available through the church office. Just give us a call or email us to let us know you need a book. If purchasing a book becomes a hindrance, please speak with Pastor Kerry. 

Youth Group

Special Classes

Adult education opportunities are offered throughout the year beyond the Sunday morning experience. These are often shorter and more specifically based on a season or event. We offer an Advent and a Lenten Study each year, along with a Book Club and other special opportunities.
