Resources for Parents

FUMCR Children's Ministry partners with parents to communicate fundamental Christian beliefs, pass on the Christian tradition and share the good news of God’s love in a manner that is meaningful to children from birth through sixth grade. Decisions and plans are made under the leadership of the Children’s Council, along with the director and assistant director of Children’s Ministry.
