Ripley First UMC

Children’s Ministries

Ripley First’s ministry for children birth through 5th grade, is excited to partner with you to help the children in your life become deeply committed Christians. From relevant and meaningful programs on the weekend and during the week, to summer camps and parenting resources, it is our hope that families grow together on their journey to know, love and serve Jesus Christ.

Sunday School: 9:30am – 10:15am

Wednesday Night Live: 5:30 – 7:30pm (we begin with a light snack supper at 5:30 followed by choir at 6, and classes at 6:45)

The Children’s Ministry Team actively strives to provide opportunities for children to learn about Jesus and His great love for them, to praise God, to show God’s love to others, and to develop an understanding of the Bible.

Sunday School, Wednesday Night Live, and Children’s Choirs are intentionally planned to teach a Bible story or principle using strategies that engage children in play, crafts, active listening, songs, and games.

Seasonal activities give us an opportunity for fellowship and fun.

  • Mardi Gras
  • Easter egg hunts in the spring.
  • Vacation Bible School in the summer.
  • Blessing of the Animals
  • Trunk or Treat. 
  • Decorating their own gingerbread house as a church family

Please look for these events on the church calendar and plan to join us!
