"This, this is where children belong, welcomed as part of the worshiping throng.  Water, God's Word, bread and cup, prayer, and song: This is where children belong."

Written and composed by James Ritchie

At FUMC-Whitesboro, we seek to provide and enable children to experience and participate in the faith community, to know and develop their Christian faith and to become disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our goal is to partner with parents to help develop the growing faith of all our children. 

Opportunites for Christian growth in Children's Ministry


From 9:30 to 10:15, children's Sunday School classes our held for children ages 3 through 5th grade.  During the school year, children are separated by age groups/grades.  During the summer, Sunday School is taught in a "one-room" model with all children learning together.

Nursery is available for children under 3 years of age.

Wednesday Activities


Throughout the calendar year there are additional special events.  Some of those events are Promotion Sunday, Halloween celebration, Count Your Blessings Thanksgiving party, Christmas choir program, and Palm Sunday Easter Eggstravaganza.  Children who have completed 3rd-5th grade may attend Bridgeport Summer Camp.  Vacation Bible School is held during the month of June and is open to children 4 years old through 5th grade.

Ministry Safe Sanctuary Certified

To ensure the safety of our children, we follow the the conference Ministry Safe Sanctuary Policy. It is the purpose of the policy to protect children that come to us, as well as church staff and volunteers. All volunteers and staff must complete Ministry Safe training as well as background checks.  For a copy of the complete policy, please contact the church office.
