Children's Ministry

"Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world..."

At FUMC McAllen we seek to provide a safe place where all children feel welcomed and loved. By providing varied age-appropriate opportunities rooted in Loving God, Sharing Jesus, and Growing in Faith, we invite all children and their families to join us on this journey of Christian discipleship.

In all of our activities and endeavors we aim to model and encourage children in a life based on Jesus' teaching to "love The Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind.....and love your neighbor as yourself". (Matt. 22:37-39)

Here's a quick glimpse at some of what God has done through our children's ministry!



Scoll down to read about all of the wonderful opportunities for children at FUMC McAllen and COME grow closer to God with us!

Created By God Class


For 5th and 6th graders
Friday, September 8     5:45 – 9:00 pm
and Saturday, September 9      9:00 am – 4:00 pm
*Parents are required to participate on Friday, 5:45-7:15 and Saturday, 3:00-4:00 p.m.

Fourth and fifth graders are growing physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially at a rapid pace, often in ways they don’t understand. And, they are being perceived in new ways by the world around them. Created By God is a study of human sexuality with a Christian foundation. It offers parents and their children opportunities to learn, grow, and celebrate the fact that we have each been wonderfully created by God and are called to responsible living as sexual beings.

Following a request by several families, we are offering another Created By God human sexuality class this coming September for entering 5th and 6th graders. We are happy that J’Nevelyn Lloyd is able to lead the class again and invite all families of 5th and 6th graders to take advantage of this special class, open to the entire community. 

The fee for the event is $40.00, covering the cost of both student and parent books, meals and snacks, supplies, and leadership. Register for the class through the Children’s Ministry page at fumcmcallen.com or by contacting Lee Ann Clemons at The deadline for registration is Monday, August 28, unless the class fills before that date. Space is limited to 25 children for the class. Call Lee Ann, 686-3784, if you have any questions.

Register below. The $40.00 fee is due on the first day of the class, Friday, September 8. Scholarships are available upon request.

It is a huge pleasure each year for First United Methodist Church to honor third graders by presenting new Bibles to them during the worship services. This year that will happen on Sunday, September 10th. Please take time to contact me at 212-4575 or to let me know which service (8:30, 9:00 or 11:00 am) your third grader will be attending. It will be our joy to give him/her a new Bible to light their path!
