From birth through sixth grade, we strive to draw on the elements of wonder, discovery and passion in children. Why? To see God for who He is, to help young people see themselves the way God sees them, and so they can love God, love others, and serve the world!

At First Kids Florence FUMC, every child has a P.L.A.C.E.:

Praising God

Learning and applying God's Word

Accepting others with Christ's love

Caring for one another

Encouraged to know Christ

First Kids meet regularly on Sunday mornings and, during the school year, on Wednesday nights (see the schedule below). We also participate in year-round activities such as the Fall Festival, Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, Dinner & A Movie, and more!


Kids meet on a weekly basis during the school year (September through November and January through April) on Wednesday nights from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for the following activities:

Pre-K & Kindergarten

Join us in N206 as we gather for fellowhship, fun, food and learning about Jesus. Each week, a Bible story is combined with an activity and personal application for this age level. This weekly curriculum engages kids' hearts and minds with trustworthy truths for their everyday lives.

First through Sixth Grades

Join us at the River in 2R where we gather each week for fellowship, fun, food, and studying God's word using state-of-the-art technology. We believe kids are world-changers and their spiritual foundation is important. By teaching kids to develop a biblical foundation, we impact their everyday choices and actions.

Pre-K - Third Grades

During our 10:45 a.m. service, our Pre-K through third graders will learn about worship by spending the first portion of the service in the sancutary with their parents. After a Children's Time message, these kids will leave the service for a creative and age-appropriate curriculum including fun and focused learning. Children can be picked up by parents at the conclusion of the sanctuary service.

NURSERY from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Birth to Three Years

The Nursery Department seeks to provide a safe, loving, fun, and comfortable environment for babies and young children. Located in rooms N122 and N123, the nursery is also available during special events and special activities. 

Florence First United Methodist Church staff have been certified in the United Methodist's Safe Sanctuaries Program . Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression in making congregations safe places where children, youth, and elders may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith.
