Sunday Morning Ministries 

 

At the First United Methodist Church of Rockwall, every child that comes through the doors and into our hearts is a treasured gift from God and a vital member of our faith community.  We are honored and overjoyed to welcome your child to the various programs offered by our Children's Ministry Department. We are committed to providing a warm, welcoming environment and meaningful spiritual formation for children from birth through sixth grade.  It is our goal to partner with parents to provide quality, Bible-based education in which the love of God is shared, as well as Godly principles.  Our desire is to create a fun, safe, and nurturing environment where boys and girls want to come and bring their friends.  We look forward to getting to know you and your family!

We believe that children's participation in worship is important to their spiritual formation.  When children worship with adults, they are empowered to develop a sense of belonging to a faith community.  The gift of a church where children are engaged in worship encourages each of us to examine how we engage in worship, our faith, and with one another.  Children remind us there is not a right way, or one way, to worship and challenge us to be open to the spontaneity of the Holy Spirit.  Children remind us that God is present in the messy-ness of our lives, giving us opportunity to reexamine the meaning of sacred and holy. 

 

We strongly encourage our elementary aged children to fully participate with their families in worship during the 11am services.  

Creation Kids Worship Bags are available for children in worship.  Each bag contains resources to help them fully participate in worship.
