Kids
We have re-opened our Kids Ministry at Leeds First United Methodist Church on Sunday, September 13th during our 8:45am and 11am worship services.
 
Elementary Kids (k – 5th grades)
Kids ministry is a place to have fun, meet friends, & learn how great God is! A kid friendly worship service geared just for kids. We partner with Orange Curriculum to bring a new and fun experience for kids alongside parents or guardians who attend the 8:45 Modern or 11:00 Traditional worship services.
 
Kids will worship God thru age appropriate song and dance. They will learn about God thru Bible stories and small group discussions in a fun new kid experience. They’ll play games which provide a fun way for the kids to use what they have learned. Kids will be checked in and out for safety. 
 
Parent cue’s are given to parents to take home to continue using what the kids have learned. This is a way to partner both church and home so kids get a better understanding of three basic truths.
1. I need to Make Wise Choices
2. I can Trust God no Matter What
3. I should treat Others the Way I want to be Treated
 
During the 8:45 Modern Worship service, kids will meet in the upstairs area of the gym. 
 
During the 11:00 Traditional service, kids will meet in the basement Fellowship hall.
Both 8:45 & 11:00 kids worship services will have the same fun curriculum. Each with awesome leaders and helpers to guide kids in being what God wants them to be.
 
Nursery:  (infants – preK)
A nursery is provided during both 8:45am Modern and 11:00am worship services.
 
To provide our children and youth a safe and nurturing environment, Leeds First follows the guidelines of Safe Sanctuaries, a ministry of the United Methodist Church for volunteers and staff.
