Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry

Welcome to FIRST 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 are passionate about our Compass Kids pointing friends and family in God’s direction.

Can’t you just hear a child saying, “Follow me to Christ?”  Or, can you imagine seeing a child point their friends to FUMC Allen because of what they’ve experienced on Sunday morning?

As children come through our doors, we would like them to know…

  • God loves us unconditionally.
  • We can trust God for everything.
  • God gives us wisdom to serve others and to make good decisions.

Sunday School

Join us for any of our children’s programs for fun and fellowship. We have Sunday school each week at 9:30am and 11:00am.

Junior Youth Fellowship

Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF) meets on Wednesday evenings during the school year from August to May. We meet in the gym at 6:30pm and dismiss from the Children’s assembly area at 7:30pm.


On Deck is our sixth grade program at FUMC Allen that we’ve designed as a fun year of learning and fellowship for our students as they complete their last year in Children’s Ministry! We’ve structured the curriculum and activities to serve as a starting point to our seventh grade confirmation program.

All sixth graders who attend our church are welcome to participate in the On Deck program. We meet every Sunday morning at 9:30am in our children’s wing.

The On Deck year begins in August when they are commissioned during worship.  Our yearly schedule includes a fall retreat, special field trips, selection of a faith partner, and times for fellowship outside the regular Sunday school hour.
