“FUMC Gainesville is a welcoming church home where children and families experience God’s love while becoming a part of a larger faith family. We offer a variety of ministries for newborns through 5th grade including Sunday School, music and drama, opportunities to serve, and much more. For more information, please contact Director of Children, Youth and Families, Jesse Letourneau at jesse@fumcgnv.org.


SUNDAY School and nursery

Each Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m., children Kindergarten - 5th grade join together for a time of singing and lessons. that bring us into the great stories of our faith.

For our littlest ones, the nursery is open beginning at 9:00 a.m. through the conclusion of 10:30 a.m. worship. The nursery implements curriculum from Spark House Publishing.

children in WORSHIP

All Children are welcomed in our worship Service!. We offer a worship backpack each week filled with activities that connect with the week’s scripture lesson.

During Service students in grades K-5 are invited to come to the front of the church for a special lesson just for them. Students in grades K-2 are invited to continue their time of worship with us in the sanctuary, or continue their time of worship next door in Epworth Hall. Students in grades 3-5 are invited to return to their seats and continue in worship.

Every first Sunday our children remain with their families for the entire worship experience so all generations are able to learn, grow and receive communion together. 

Our goal is that families will always leave church having something meaningful to discuss from worship around the lunch table and throughout the week! Giving families a shared-language of faith is priority for us here at FUMC! 


children SERVING IN worship

At FUMC we value children as an integral part of our worshiping community. We encourage children to serve along side the grown-ups. Children can serve as acolytes, ushers, greeters, as well as sing, and play chimes.
