Fishersville UMC has a vibrant and active children’s ministry that culminates into a variety of programs, classes, special events and more for kids all of ages, from newborns to seniors in High School! FUMC has established and partnered with the UMC’s Safe Sanctuaries policy that is designed to protect the children of our congregation from abuse of any kind. All staff and volunteers undergo training and a background check before they serve in any Kids or Youth ministry activities. To learn more about Safe Sanctuaries, please click here or contact us if you have any questions!
FUMC’s children ministries offer events and gatherings that give local families a safe and fun way to celebrate any season of life, whether it be through annual offerings like Trunk or Treat and the Easter Egg Hunt or Paint Nights and more!
Our Nursery takes pride in ministering to our youngest children. Care is available for children aged from newborn through 5 years old. We provide a safe, loving environment where families can feel confident leaving their little ones while the parents enjoy worship on their own.
On Sunday morning, Nursery care is available for our 8:30am Traditional Service, Sunday School, and our 11:00am Blended Service. Nursery care is also available on many holiday services such as Christmas Eve and “Bow the Knee” during Easter.
If you are interested in your child joining our Nursery so that you can enjoy the worship service without distractions, please scroll to the bottom of this page or click here to fill out the Children’s Ministries interest form and select “Nursery” underneath interests and we’ll be in contact soon!
Children’s Sunday School
On Sunday mornings, along with our adult-oriented worship services and Sunday School, we also provide a Children’s Sunday School!
Beginning at 9:40, Children’s Sunday School class is available in the Children’s wing downstairs, in what many church members refer to as the “Old Building,” because the foundation is the same as the original building, and on Zoom for those children that cannot make it in-person. The in-person Sunday School class happens in Room 109.
The Zoom information needed to join the meeting is:
- Meeting ID: 950-933-6104
- Password: 22939
Both the in-person and the Zoom versions of the Children’s Sunday School class are led by Wendi Olli. If you are interested in your child joining us for Sunday School, please either join us on Zoom with the information above, stop by on a Sunday morning at your convenience, or let us know that you are interested by scrolling to the bottom of this page or clicking here to fill out the Children’s Ministries interest form and select “Sunday School” underneath interests and we’ll be in contact soon!
During our 11:00am Blended Worship Service, children are dismissed from the Sanctuary just after the Praise and Worship time to a service just for them. Children will have a lesson, sing songs, and create fun art projects that all point them to the truth that they are loved by God! Kids Worship happens in Room 109 downstairs and any kids joining us for this time can be picked up from that room promptly after the 11:00am service is done.
If you are interested in your child joining us for Kids Worship, please either have your kid join the group of children who leave when dismissed from the 11:00am service or let us know that you are interested by scrolling to the bottom of this page or clicking here to fill out the Children’s Ministries interest form and select “Kids Worship” underneath interests and we’ll be in contact soon!
