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! 


Next week due to the Thanksgiving holiday we will not have a WOW lesson or Zoom gathering. We will resume with the Zoom on December 2 and 9 as we celebrate Advent. Instead of a WOW bag/emailed guide, we are inviting families to join in The Great ADVENTure, a Family Advent Celebration to do at home. For more information and to register by Friday, Dec. 20 click on the link below….

Note the following schedule and opportunities for your children during December…..

• WOW Zoom on Wednesdays, Dec. 2 and 9 from 4:00-5:00. The children will work on the song, Go Tell It On the Mountain which we will record to present to the congregation on Sunday, Dec. 13th. More details about that will follow, but all children are invited to participate!!!

• Children’s Handbell Choir practices will take place on Saturdays, 10:00-10:45 am, November 21 (this Saturday) and December 5 & 12 and Thursdays, December 3, 10, & 17 from 4:00-4:45 pm. We will practice in the sanctuary foyer using all necessary distancing and masks. The children will learn to play Away in a Manger which we will present to the congregation on Sunday, December 20. We will decide together if this will be a recorded video to show or if it will be in person as it gets closer. We want everyone to feel completely safe and not pressured to gather, so we will decide this later together.

We know that you are very busy and do not expect the children to be present for all of the Handbell Choir practices. If your child is participating, we do ask that they attend 3 of the 6 practice day/times being offered. Please call or text me at 956-212-4575 for more information. 

Sunday School is Zooming on! Come join us!
