At Front Street United Methodist Church, we are committed to offering ministries that are appropriate to the physical, social, and spiritual growth of each child.   We seek to offer children a loving environment that teaches the Word of God and gives them the opportunity to grow, play, and learn together as God's children.
 
Below are some of the opportunities available at Front Street UMC.

Children participate with their parents in the first portion of the 11:00 AM worship service.  Following the Time with Younger Disciples, children 4 years old through First Grade depart for Children's Church - a time for them to learn, through activities and lessons, about the experience of worship and prepare them for paricipating in our Worship Services.
