At First Methodist, we love to create space and time for our CHILDREN and YOUTH to be able to grow in faith together. 

Whether it is at a weekly gathering, or our yearly events such as Children’s VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL and Summer Youth Camp, we want every child and teenager to be able to experience the love of God in an atmosphere created by a safe and loving community. 


FIRST KIDS CHURCH is offered during the Sunday morning worship service. Children are encouraged to worship with their families for the first part of the service and are dismissed after "A Time For First Kids" with one of our pastors.  Your children will learn a Bible story in an engaging, age appropriate way that includes video, games, crafts, and conversation.

The Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF) meets on Sundays at 5:00 p.m. in the Hitching Post Youth Room upstairs.  This is a time for junior high and high school students to grow as followers of Jesus and build friendships while sharing food, fellowship, prayer, and Bible study.  


YOUTH RETREATS - Our youth have several opportunities to spend a week, or a weekend, in a faith-forming environment while enjoying some fun and fellowship.  Typically, the youth will take a week long trip during Spring Break as well as during the summer for the Methodist Youth Summer Camp at Lakeview.   Also, youth have opportunities to gather together for various "lock-ins" and concerts throughout the year.
