Children's Ministry

At Americus First United Methodist Church, we strive to provide children with many activities that will help them encounter God and begin a lifelong relationship with Him. Our prayer is that through the children’s activities kids will know God's Word in their heads, know Jesus' love in their hearts, and serve Him with their hands.

We’d love to have your children participate in our children’s ministry activities. We ask that all participants fill out a permission form so that we can keep everyone as safe as possible. You can download the form here: 2016-2017 Permission Form

    We want preschoolers to take a first look at who God is and understand:

    God loves me.

    God made me.

    Jesus is my friend forever.

    We want elementary students to embrace three basic truths according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52.

    I need to make the wise choice.

    I can trust God no matter what.

    I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
