At Ames First UMC, we provide a range of activities and events to teach children about Jesus and help them grow in their faith. We believe that the children’s ministry is essential to our overall ministry, as it helps to develop the next generation of Christ-followers. We offer several ways to connect with this ministry throughout the year.

For the School Year (September Through Mid-May)

Sunday School

Children’s Sunday School is held from 9:45-10:45 am. We use a rotation model and focus on one Bible story each month. We have all sorts of special, fun, and exciting activities during our time together. Sunday school is for children ages two up through 5th grade.

Seasonal Wednesday Night Events

We will hold Wednesday evening programming for children on a seasonal basis. Please check with the office or our Events page to learn more about the current offering.
