Our Children's Ministry is truly a place for kids! Through fun hands-on learning and mission projects for the whole family, we allow children to grow in their faith and begin to take on leadership roles within our church and community. At Edmond FUMC, you will find a ministry that supports families. We want kids to connect with God in an environment that is personal, fun, safe and nurturing.
We offer interactive Sunday school classes, Wednesday evening activities (Sept-May), summertime Vacation Bible School, church camps and a variety of other educational mediums to spread God's love.

Upcoming Kids Events
Noah's Nook Nursery
Birth through 36 months | Main Building
Available on Sundays during worship services and Sunday School times; and Wednesdays during mid-week classes
All of our nursery rooms provide a safe, fun and age-appropriate environment for our littlest members, giving parents an ease-of-mind to worship themselves. Our nursery is staffed by paid, experienced workers who are CPR and First-Aid certified. They also continue their education by attending classes and seminars throughout the year in topics such as child development and safety procedures.
Our qualified staff creates a positive church experience that introduces babies and toddlers to a love for Jesus early on in life. All nursery classes coincide with all of the church's regular Sunday services and classes, as well as Wednesday mid-week classes.
2 years through 5th Grade | Christian Activity Center
Available during the 9:45 am Sunday School hour
First Kids Elementary programming, based off of curriculum found at DeepBlueKids.com, is geared towards children 2 years of age through 5th grade and is available during the 9:45 Sunday school hour. Through games, crafts and age-appropriate lessons and applications, your elementary student will journey through the weekly Bible lesson in a small-group setting, as well as experience the large-group lesson in our children's praise and worship space.
Acolyte Ministry is a very important ministry in our church, as it is a part of the service and also represents bringing the light in a spiritual sense. When we gather at the church, we are bringing our light for Christ inside to nourish our souls and feed our spirits. When we leave church, we are bringing Christ’s light back out into the world and letting God's light shine. Children, 2nd grade through 5th grade, can be Acolytes. If your child is interested in being an Acolyte, please email email@example.com.
Wednesday Evening Activities
3 years through 5th Grade | Christian Activity Center
Available on Wednesdays (throughout the school year), 6:30-8 pm
First Kids on Wednesday evenings is a fun interactive program that gives children, preschool through 5th grade, their first taste of a small group experience. Using age-appropriate curriculum, children learn the love of God and the teachings of Christ through Bible verses and stories, fun crafts, and dramatic play activities.
First Kids Church
3 years through 3rd Grade | Christian Activity Center
Available on Sundays during worship services
First Kids Church is a great place where children can learn about God's word and His love through worship, Bible lessons, games and small-group teaching. To attend First Kids Church, children three years old through 3rd grade are invited into the traditional worship services with their parents and families. Then, following the Children's Sermon, the kids will walk and gather together in our children's praise and worship space. For children with parents attending Worship on Hurd, please bring your children directly to the Christian Activity Center before service. This space is a high-energy environment that teaches the weekly Bible lesson through songs, drama and group participation.
