Important Nursery News!
We have moved!
Due to some unexpected maintenance we will need to move our Sunday Morning Nurseries!
On Sunday Mornings you can now find the Nursery rooms in rooms 128, 129 and 130.
These classrooms are located in the same hallway as our Elementary Sunday School rooms. Look for our regular cheerful caregivers, Ms. Bonnie and Ms. Susie to welcome you and your little ones

Join us each Sunday at 10 a.m.


All Elementary Ages will gather at the Leap Pad (the canteen) and then leap into Sunday School

Preschoolers will meet directly in their room.


Infant to 2 year olds (room 101)
Preschool, 3s & 4s (room 108)
Kindergarten (room 133)
First & Second Grades (room 132)
Third Graders (room 131)

First United Methodist Church's Ministry with Children is located on the first floor of the main building.
