Have kids? We've got you covered. Our Church offers childcare for kids who are babies up to 5 years old, and Sunday School programs for kids from 1st grade on up. Your children will be in a safe environment where they will learn about Jesus and have a fun time doing it. You may also choose to keep them with you and worship with us in the main sanctuary. Our services always feature a kids message  prepared just for them. 


During the year we offer events like movie days, an annual talent show, youth group, kids choir, kids outings, and a kids carnival each summer with a parking lot full of fun.


Visiting us for the first time? No fear! Your kids can stay with you or our friendly host will show you where our Kids Check-In is when you arrive. We will meet your family, check your child into nursery or class if you wish, and answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you!


Volunteers at our childcare and classrooms are trained to create an atmosphere where families can confidently leave their children while they are in service. Every volunteer is screened and the kids hallway is monitored by adult personnel. Don't worry parents - we've got this!


Your kids will experience an age-appropriate lesson that will teach them about God and His love for them. The teaching is interactive and uses multiple approaches for different learning styles. The goal at the First United Methodist Church in Erie is for kids to understand who Jesus is and how He can make a difference in their lives. They will also have a lot of fun!


We're raising up the next generation of world-changers to love God and His house!
