Family Ministries offers programming for children and their families from birth through 5th grade. We follow Safe Sanctuaries  guidelines to protect our children and annually train our staff and volunteers.

Children’s Sunday school: Sunday school for kids in preschool through fifth grade meets on Sundays throughout the school year from 10:05 to 10:50 a.m. upstairs in the blue Sunday school room. We are part of the Deep Blue Family, using their one classroom curriculum. We are exploring families in the Bible, learning how today’s faith families care for each other as we grow, build loving relationships, and we’re finding out what it means to be part of God’s family!

Moms-N-More: Is a group open to moms, dads, foster parents, grandparents and ALL looking for meaningful time together filled with devotional time, activities, conversations, and much more. It truly takes a village and we are growing a loving and supportive community. Right now, we meet every third Friday from 10-11:30am. Daycare provided in the nursery.

Missions Moments: Is a way for the FUMC Village to take christ to the community and the community to Christ. Each month there is a mission focus to help others in the Grand Valley. We do lake and park cleanup, food drives, diaper drives, visits to our veterans, serve at the soup kitchen, and so much more.

Village of Faith Nights(VOF): A way for our church to come together; including kids, adults, families and friends, to enjoy faith, food, family and fun. Typically held on the 3rd Sunday of every month from 4-6pm, some special events may change dates and times of VOF. Each month you can expect a different activity from church/Bible scavenger hunt, game night, camp night, and so much more. Come join our Village!

There is a fully staffed nursery for infants – 3-year-olds for both services. Click here for more nursery information.
