Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

O'Fallon First Kids Ministry serves infants through 5th grade children and their parents. We exist to serve children and families by faithfully teaching the gospel and demonstrating the love of Christ to all children, stirring in them the desire to trust, serve, worship, and obey God (Psalm 78:1-7) to serve others and share the Good news of Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20). Our mission is to partner with families to equip parents to lead their children to live their lives rooted in Christ, not just on Sundays, but every day. 

Our kids ministry is growing and needs your help!

What to expect:
One of our kid's ministry leaders will greet you and assist you in the check in process when you arrive on Sunday.
Pre-Register your child(ren) HERE OR
When you arrive, we will ask for the following personal information
(NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child’s name
- Child’s birth date / Grade
- Email address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

Then you will sit together for the start of worship! At our 9:00 Worship Service, kids 5 and older will stay with you for the entire worship service. At the 11:00 service, kids will join you for the start of worship, then enjoy a Children's Church time during the sermon and communion time.
Children are welcome to sit with you in worship but we do have programs available for all ages throughout the morning and evening services. There is Nursery care for children from 6 months to Pre-K during all three services. Older children have Children's Church during the worship times and their own Sunday School classes - both with experiences that are appropriate for their age. Learn more about the details HERE.
This unique ministry is designed for children with special needs of all ages.
Our Sunshine Room is located right across the hall from our Nursery and is designed to fit the needs of many different children. This space is equipped with trained, CPR certified staff ready to share the love of Christ with your child. We have curriculum designed to be taught one on one with your child.
We would love to discuss this opportunity with you further before your first visit!
Give us a call 618-632-2354 for more information or email our Children's Ministry Coordinator at offumc4kids@gmail.com

Sunday Mornings

10am-11am

This is the Sunday school hour for all age groups. Kids are welcome in the nursery or the kid's room for Sunday school!

11am-12pm

During our contemporary worship service, we invite our families to worship together. Before the sermon, the kids will be invited to join a kid's ministry leader for an age-appropriate lesson filled with discussion, Bible teaching, snacks, and loads of fun! They will then come back after the sermon and join you to finish the worship service together as a family.
