Children's Ministries

Bring us your children
we will teach them
they are loved, chosen, 
and safe no matter
what the world looks like
As people of faith, we are called to teach children through scripture, our tradition as Methodists, the Social Principles, the ritual of baptism, and our concern for families. In responding to the call set before us, we will provide environments for children to be nurtured in the faith and to grow as children of God. . . We promise "We will surround these persons with a community of love and forgiveness, that they may grow in their service to others." [Children ¶1,6, The United Methodist Book of Resolutions, ©2012]
Our children are an important part of our community here at Wenatchee First United Methodist Church. Besides Sunday School, we seek to include them in many church events, from our Faith@Work monthly mission program, Wednesday night dinners, and participating in worship through music and drama. As part of our ministry to our youth and children, we seek to help them grow into members of the church who will strive as disciples to build a community that seeks to know and love God and serve others.
Each Sunday children are invited to accompany their parents in worship and take part in the children's moment, where they come forward and enjoy a Bible story and sharing by the Pastor or volunteer. They return to their seats and after worship, they are invited to attend a Faithful Living class created just for them. Each 6-week session is different: examples: making artwork for the Sanctuary; practicing for Christmas singing/dram program; learning how to play bells; etc.
Nursery Childcare for babies and children up to age 3 is available at our 10:00am service. Stop by anytime and visit our bright spacious nursery located on the main floor at the end of the hall.
An integral part of our Sunday School program is missions and service. The children are always participating in a mission such as UNICEF, Heifer International, or projects the whole church is doing such as collecting Christmas stocking stuffers for foster children, and the collection of backpacks and school supplies.
Each summer we choose a special mission project that we encourage VBS families and our congregation to support.



In the past, each summer we offered a Vacation Bible School program for 4 years olds through those students going into fifth grade.  In 2015, we instead offered a Family Fun Camp event in the evening in August. Children, teens, and adults of all ages join together for four evenings of fun-filled Bible learning activities, games, mission projects, and crafts.  Call the church office in the Spring to learn more about this event.






Acolytes assist the pastors at the 10:00am service by bringing the light of Christ into the sanctuary and lighting the candles on the Communion table.  A yearly training session is offered to children entering the third grade who are interested in becoming acolytes.
