Kids First and Discovery Days Preschool Classes and Summer Camps closed for the school year.

As you all know the church is closed right now, and also the Kids First and Discovery Days Preschool, a ministry of FUMC, has temporarily suspended operation following Kansas state guidelines for education. We will be closed the rest of this school year, and there will not be the option of summer camp for children this summer. We are eagerly looking forward to when the state allows all schools to open, and look forward to seeing this ministry again a vital part of our congregation. In the meantime, check out our Facebook page “Kids First Preschool and Discovery Days”. Teachers have been posting book readings, crafts, and other ideas for children.

Children are a vital part of our church family.

Therefore we strive to foster within each child the desire to discover God
in a personal way by providing opportunities to experience and explore
the Bible, prayer, worship, fellowship, and reaching out to others in love.
