Children’s Ministry

Welcome to COMPASS KIDS, our Children’s Ministry program at FUMC Allen. Why Compass Kids? At FUMC Allen, kids are on a mission to discover God’s direction for their lives and we are here, working with God’s Holy Word, to help them understand: How do we follow Christ? Where is God leading us? How and where should we serve God? Children’s Ministry is all about helping our children navigate the Bible and apply its teaching to their lives.  In turn, we…

Our mission: To be agents of change bringing about the kingdom of God. Our vision: To seek to be a community of God that loves everyone.

Confirmation

Confirmation refers to the decision a person makes to respond to God’s grace with intentional commitment, publicly reaffirming his/her baptismal vows before the congregation. Our confirmands are seventh grade youth who spend a year together to learn about the meaning of Christian faith and the history and teachings of the United Methodist Church. They also receive an explanation of the baptismal and membership vows they will be professing on Confirmation Sunda in the spring. As part of the process, confirmands…

Music Ministry

Music is a gift from God that we give back to God as praise. In Psalm 150, we see that all that have breath can serve God through music. Music Ministry at FUMC Allen serves God through this gift of music. We offer a variety of ensembles for all ages and abilities. To learn more about any music opportunity, contact Music Minister Rusty King.

Special Needs Ministry

All kids, regardless of ability, should feel welcome at church and be able to participate in any program that interests them. Some of these kids need a little extra help and attention in order to do so. Many of us were apprehensive about  talking to people with any kind of disability–not knowing what to say or how to act, or in some cases, whether we could even understand what they are saying. Then, Judie Otcheck-Inman impressed us with her energy,…

Sports and Recreation

4:7 Sports, a multi-generational Sports and Recreation Ministry of FUMC Allen, centers around the philosophy that positive reinforcement and love is the keystone to player development on the court, field, or track, and personal development off. We’re named for 2 Timothy 4:7, which states “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”  While we’re passionate about our goals in the sports, we believe all our athletes have a far greater calling. 4:7 Sports has opportunities…
