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! 


All children are invited to the entrance of the new sanctuary to receive palms, then process in together during the first hymn waving palms in celebration of Jesus' last entry into Jerusalem.

 Created By God / wonderfully made Human Sexuality Class for 4th, 5th, and 6th Graders

Created by God is a study of human sexuality with a Christian foundation. It offers both 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. In addition, participation in Created by God helps families better communicate about sexuality and other life issues now and in the future. Leading the study will be J’Nevelyn Lloyd, Director of Children’s Ministry at Tarrytown United Methodist Church in Austin. The fee for the event is $40.00. Space is limited to 25 children for the class. If you have questions, contact Lee Ann Clemons, 686-3784. Also be aware that this event is open to all who are interested in a church-based study of sexuality— friends, neighbors, other family members, or persons from the community at large.
