Opportunities the week of December 4:

Kids Music and WonderKids! on Wednesday Night: The kids will meet in the choir room at 6pm to practice the songs for the Christmas Children's Musical. Then, during part of our 6:30-7:30 hour we will be rehearsing the speaking parts for Christmas Children's Musical.    

Novmember 2022

The children of the church have spent most of the month of November preparing for their Christmas musical. We have twenty kids from pre-school through fifth grade involved. We will be presenting "Christmas Road Trip" to our church family and guests on December 11 at 6pm in the Sanctuary.

Our faithful Sunday School teachers, Amy Owsley, Meredith Church, Chris Phillips, Katie Maurer, Jeff Eubanks, and Stacy Atwood, engage our children with activities that build upon our weekly Bible Stories! We love our kids AND their teachers!

This month we welcomed the newest member of the Children's Department. Isabella Willis is our new nursery caregiver. At times when there are no children in the nursery she also helps Mr. B. with Sunday School, children's worship activities, and with Wednesday night WonderKids! We still appreciate those who also volunteer to work in the nursery with Isabella, since extra hands are always needed. The sign up for nursery volunteers is coordinated by Nikki Ringenberg, and her efforts are greatly appreciated, too.  

For upcoming children's ministries, visit 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.
