YOUTH MINISTRY AT FIRST UMC
Our youth ministry at First UMC seeks to provide a safe space for youth of all ages to navigate their faith, serve our communities, and feel accepted for who they are as a child of God. We do this through our Nursery, Sunday School, and Youth Group programs.
We provide weekly childcare in our Nursery each Sunday from 10:00am-12:00pm. Nursery is available for children age 0-3. Parents are asked to sign their children in and out at drop-off and pick-up with our Nursery Attendant or available volunteer.
Our Sunday School class meets weekly on Sundays following the Children's Moments during worship until conclusion of service. We explore stories of the bible through our Deep Blue Curriculum and seek out ways to provide service for our church community and beyond. Sunday School is available for children in Pre-K-5th grade.
First United Methodist Youth (FUMY) meets weekly on Wednesday nights at FUMC from 5:30-7:00pm. We eat dinner together, play games, and explore relevant topics to today's young people. We also engage in various service projects each month. FUMY is open to all Middle School and High School students (6th-12th grade)
Our nursery is staffed by one Nursery Attendant and various volunteers. All of our staff and volunteers are Safe Gatherings certified, meaning they are trained to ensure the highest safety for your children in our ministry. Childcare in our nursery is provided every Sunday from 10am through the end of worship for children ages 0-3. Please be sure to sign your children in at the time of drop-off and sign them out at pick up. Please inform our nursery staff of any dietary, allergy, medical, and other pertinent information about your child. We also ask that you provide diapers or anything else your child may need during their time in nursery. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday School is available for children in Pre-K through 5th grade. We offer Sunday School weekly on Sunday's following the Children's Moments during worship. Using the Deep Blue curriculum from Cokesbury, we explore various themes and stories from the Bible as we form and understand our faith together. We also spend time learning children songs and finding ways to act in service to our First UMC and Missoula communities. Sunday School is lead by our Youth Director and volunteer staff.
