Children’s Ministries

Our children's ministry strives to provide a fun, loving, entertaining and relevant environment where children learn about God. Assembly style children's church is held in conjunction with the Sunday morning worship service; age specific Sunday school classes are held at 9:45 each Sunday for children of all ages as well as age specific Wednesday evening classes each week following a time of food and fellowship for adults, teens and children. Various events are scheduled throughout the year to allow the children opportunities to fellowship, witness and celebrate God's love by being the little hands and little feet of Jesus. At Southaven First United Methodist Church, we are equipping children to know, grow, and show God’s love!

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.(Proverbs 22:6 ESV)
