Exciting things are happening in Children's Ministry! Here at NFUMC, our goal is to provide a foundation of experiences on which children build a life of learning and growth toward a mature and vital faith. We would love to have you join us at NFUMC!

NFUMC Kids packed 39 Gift A Gallon bags! NFUMC Kids gathered together for Service Sunday and packed 39 bags for Raise the Roof Academy students in Uganda. They learned about their culture, school, what makes us different, and what makes us the same. Jacob and Ryan led us in prayer for the students; that the bags would be a blessing to all who received them. We ended with pizza and play!

Beginning June 4: Children’s Choir Summer Musical
Imagine you are given a challenge to find a way to make a difference in your city. What would you do? What difference could you make? After all, you are only a child!
Join us this summer on Tuesdays, 5:30-7:30pm, June 4-August 6 (except July 16). This includes a light dinner. Children who have completed Kindergarten and older will find out how Inspired kids make waves to save a homeless shelter slated to be shut down by the city. With God’s help, and through their desperate quest to keep the shelter open, these children realize they can really make a difference right where they live. Performances will be during both worship services on August 11.
