Children and Tweens

Children's Ministries

Welcome to the Children’s Ministries at First United. This is where children will dive into God’s word as they develop the skills to unlock the Bible’s message and explore the depths of God's love so that they may discover hope and deepen their faith. 

Wave (Pre-K through 4th Grade)

Sunday Morning WAVE children develop the skills to unlock the Bible’s message as they “dive deeper” into the Bible, and explore the depths of God’s love. We nourish and enrich children, from birth through tweens, so that they have a living-faith experience that helps them discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today!

We will travel on an around the world adventure full of new friends and new encounters with the Bible and with God. With Deep Blue, children will make Bible stories, Bible people, and Bible passages a part of their lives. They also will come to know the Bible as THEIR book and find ways to let the Bible speak to them today!  

IMPACT (5th & 6th Grade)

This is a space and place created for 5th and 6th graders to come and discover hope, deepen their faith, and learn how to have a positive "Impact" on their community, church, and world as they transition into their teenage years. Tweens will learn how to search the Bible for answers and build a faith foundation that helps them deepen their faith. 

SPLASH (After-School Ministry)

SPLASH - Singing, Playing, Learning and Serving Him - After-School Ministry Wednesdays from 2:00-4:00 pm Children will go on a Bible adventure where they will learn stories to help them discover hope and deepen their faith! First United will equip the children on their spiritual journey as they will memorize scripture, explore the depths of the Bible and learn traditions through prayers and creeds. Cost is $75 for Sept-Dec.

Confirmation (6th Grade)

The confirmation journey is about equipping tweens with the information, tools, and resources they need to make an informed decision about committing to follow Christ. The journey of confirmation is helping your tweens to understand the facets of the Christian community.
