First UMC Winfield Children & Family Ministry Vision Statement

Actively invite children and families to experience Christ in a safe, stable place where a child can be heard deeply and known lovingly.

Make Disciples of Christ
Create a spirit-filled community of faith equipped to cultivate contagious passion for Christ.

Baptizing Them
Share ideas and resources that offer children and families opportunities to respond to God’s love, grow in God’s love, and commit to being part of the body of Christ.

Teaching Them
Create opportunities for children and families to practice their faith in fun, age-appropriate and multi-sensory ways.

Children's Activities

Some of the activities we offer for children are:

Nursery is available during all worship services for children birth through age 4.  

Sunday School Classes are available for all ages each Sunday at 9:40 am.  In this traditional classroom setting, children explore God’s word through  crafts, games , and discussions.  Through take-home activities, parents are encouraged & equipped as the child’s primary faith nurturer.

Children's Church is offered during 10:45 Worship on Sunday mornings for children in Kindergarten through 4th grade.  Sometimes the best way to hear God’s voice, thank God or ask for God’s guidance is through glue sticks, hoola-hoops, and ribbon sticks.  We respect each child’s learning stage and Children’s Church offers an age appropriate worship avenue for each child.

Kids' Club and Extreme Explorers are after-school programs for Kindergarten through 5th grade students.

Acolytes - Children in 3rd and 4th grades are empowered to demonstrate that Jesus is the Light of the world by lighting the altar candles during worship services.
