'First Kids' Children's Ministry 

The children’s ministry at FUMC Huntsville exists to teach kids the love of God and guide them as they grow in their faith through foundational truths of the Bible in an engaging and safe environment.

Our Children’s Ministry here at FUMC Huntsville offers nursery and childcare for church functions, Sunday School classes for children in preschool through 5th grade, Wednesday evening programming, children’s choir, and special yearly experiences to build a foundation of faith in every child.

First Kids Sunday School 

Sundays  |  11 AM  |  Children’s Assembly Room

Children’s Sunday School classes begin at 11:00 AM in the First Kids wing. During Sunday School, we dive into our current curriculum with scripture reading, prayer, games, short videos and other activities to help children learn the stories of God’s Word and deepen their faith in God. Sunday School classes are broken down by grade level: Prek-1st Grade (C104), 2nd-3rd Grade (C105), and 4th-5th Grade (C107). Nursery is provided for infant-3 year olds in room C102.

Wednesday Night Live for children is a Bible study and fellowship time for those 4 years old through 5th grade. Children will meet in the Assembly Room from 6:00-7:00 p.m. We will play games, do crafts, learn a Bible lesson, and practice for upcoming church performances or musicals. Nursery is provided from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in room C103 for infants through 3-year-olds.

Please bring all necessary items with you.  Make sure all belongings, including the bag, are labeled.  Families are responsible for supplying bottles, milk, formula, juice cups, finger foods, pacifiers, and any other items they believe their children will need.  If you use cloth diapers, include a sealable plastic bag for soiled diapers.

Please refrain from bringing any nuts, nut-based products, or items which may contain trace amounts of nuts, with you or your children.
