At First UMC , We Love Our Kids!!! 

We desire to create an environment which nurtures and develops a genuine faith for their young lives. Each Sunday, we offer a nursery for the little ones, and Children's Church (kindergarten through 5th grade) during the worship hour. From Sunday School, Children's Worship to Mystery Trips and Fun Events, our goal is always be a safe and uplifting place for our Families to Connect with their faith.  
Bethany Brown is our new Children and Youth Director.  Here is something Bethany sent us so we can get to know her better: 
Born in North Carolina and Raised in South Carolina, I recently graduated college in May of this year with a B.S. in Human Services from the University of South Carolina Beaufort. During my time in high school and college I was honored to be able to work on the leadership team for the youth ministry at my church in SC. I knew God was calling me to something more so embarked on an adventure to Jasper, TX this summer for an internship in Youth Ministry at FUMC Jasper. This internship led me to working with UM ARMY, Summit and camp at Lakeview. Now, I'm excited for my next adventure coming to Dayton and serving God with y'all!
