Children’s Ministry

Kids @ 1st

First United Methodist Church of Leavenworth (FUMCL) wants every child to know that God loves them, no matter what. We are committed to sharing God’s love and to treat each child as a gift from God, because that is what they are. Everything we do is designed to plant seeds of faith. We partner with God and with families to help grow on a foundation of God’s love and basic bible principles.

Sunday School

Sunday School is from 9:45 – 10:40 a.m. in our Education Building.  We currently have two classes.

Class 1 – Room 105    Pre-K through 1st grade

Class 2 – Room 202    2nd – 6th grade

During Sunday School children experience engaging activities that bring the Bible to life. They will not only learn the stories, but ways to apply the principles in their everyday life.

Children’s Time

Each Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. worship service there is a children’s time early in the service where all children are invited to join up front for a sharing moment. Following Children’s Time, all children ages 3 years – 3rd grade are invited to go to Kids First Worship.


Kids First Worship

Kids First Worship is our version of Children’s Church. It is not equal to Sunday School, but a Worship Experience designed just for kids. We sing songs of the faith from all generations, and pray.  We experience the Bible story through the Bible itself, video messages, art, games and science. 

Wonderful Wednesday

Sign-up Here!

Wonderful Wednesday is a mid-week program that is designed to give children a boost of faith in a loving and safe atmosphere. This year we are focusing on Building Relationships and Making Memories. Each month we will have an overarching theme and Bible focus to guide us in building a relationship with God and one another, and making memories that will span from previous generations to future generations.
