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!


 Wednesday afternoon program for kids


All 3 year olds through 5th graders are invited to join us every Wednesday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30 pm for games, Bible stories, art activities, music and MORE! This spring we are focusing on God’s promises come to life in Jesus Christ, having a lot of fun being together, and even celebrating spring with planting flower seeds in the raised bed garden. All children are welcome to come grow closer to God and each other at WOW!

WOW afternoons at FUMC are buzzing with joy and fun as the children grow in faith and friendship. On the first Wednesday of every month the children’s lesson revolves around reaching out and helping others in need. In February they assembled chili mixes to raise funds for Imagine No Malaria, a UMC program that works to educate about and eradicate malaria in Africa. This is a fun annual project for the FUMC Children that encourages them to help others in the world. The children raised over $400.00 this year for this worthy cause. In March, the children will decorate placemats for the people involved in the Kairos ministry. Kairos is a weekend retreat type program which seeks to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families. The children are happy to offer their prayers and special designs for this ministry.

Fourth and fifth graders are growing physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially at a rapid pace, often in ways they don’t understand. 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. The class will be led by J’Nevelyn Lloyd, Director of Children’s Ministry at Tarrytown United Methodist Church and facilitated by Lee Ann Clemons. Registration is open to all 4th and 5th graders in the community. The class is filling quickly. There are only 8 spaces left, so sign up ASAP. Call Lee Ann, 686-3784, if you have any questions.
