GROWING YOUR FAITH WITH 1st
Worship is just part of our journey of faith. It is important for us to continue studying, learning and growing in Christ. 1st UMC offers people of all ages the chance to delve deeper into their faith.
1st Kids Ministries
Through the teaching of Biblical principles, 1st Kids programs help children develop a closer relationship with Christ. Programs include Sunday School, Kids Own Worship, Confirmation Classes and opportunities for kids to participate in the mission work of the church.
1st Youth Ministries
Youth in 7th through 12th grades are welcome to be a part of 1st Youth. This is a community devoted to God, excited to serve, open to new and different people and eager to make anything fun. Throughout the year there are regular weekly meetings and special get togethers aimed at building fellowship and community.
Over the past year Sunday School, a staple of church tradition, has taken on a variety of forms. 1st UMC offers Sunday School each week. There are classes for children ages 3 to 103 (or even older Alternate Grinning Face). Some groups meet online and some meet in-person. We are currently working to get updated schedules and contacts here on the website. If you need more information on Adult Sunday School classes before then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nursery Services are now available on Sunday mornings and on Wednesday Evenings. We ask that you reserve a spot for your child (ages 3 and under) if you are coming on Sunday mornings. Reservations are not needed for Wednesday mornings.
Small Group Studies
Whether it's one of our Lenten Studies, an in-depth discussion about a social justice issue or an Adam Hamilton Bible Study, small groups are an integral part of the faith journey. While most studies have been online the past year, we are hoping in-person studies will resume soon. Groups like United Methodist Women, our men's groups and even a knitting group round out ways you can be a part of a small group at 1st UMC.
