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!
Every Sunday morning at 9:45 am people of all ages (children, teens, and adults) gather for time to learn about God, share Jesus, and get to know each other. There are three classes available for children taught by caring adults with age-appropriate lessons of the Christian faith.
Preschool Sunday School for 2, 3, and 4 year olds in Room 103
Godly Play Sunday School for Kindergarteners through 3rd graders in Room 201.
Older Elementary Sunday School for 4th and 5th graders in Room 208
Every Wednesday during the school year children (3 years old through 5th graders) are invited to an afternoon of fun at FUMC! Through games, fun snacks, music, art and MORE the children learn about God’s promises lived out in the stories of the Bible and promised to us for TODAY. They learn the wonderful stories of God's people...each pointing to the greatest commandments to Love God and Love our Neighbor as We Love Ourselves. There is a gathering playtime from 3:30-4:00, followed by the bible lesson activities from 4:00-5:00, and choir for Kinder through 8th graders from 5:00-5:30 pm. Come join us!
The Special Needs Support Group meets every second Thursday of the month. All families of children with special needs are invited to gather to share experiences, encouragement, and helpful ideas and coping stradegies as they deal with the challenges and joys of raising children with special needs. Childcare is available in Room 201.
During the school year, all Kinder through 8th graders are invited to join the Children's Choir led by Bo and Alissa Shirah every Wednesday, 5:00-5:30 pm in Room 207. The Children's Choir sings several times throughout the year during worship services and present an annual Chistmas musical each December. In the summer they join together for Mission and Music Camp (see registration link below) when they learn a musical and go out in the community to serve others. On Friday evening of M & M Camp they present their musical and enjoy a delicious dinner with family and friends. Practices will resume on September 5, 2018. All are welcome!
