Train a child up in the way he should go,
Even when he is old, he will not depart from it.

~ Proverbs 22:6

The habits that we model for our children matter. The behaviors that they learn when they are young will often be repeated as they grow older. The FirstKids ministry at Marlow FUMC exists to be a resource to you as you seek to help your children to grow in faith, hope, and love.

At FirstKids, we teach our children that we express our faith in thought, in word, and in deed. That means that the faith that we model for our children is intellectual, experiential, and communal. We learn to interpret the scripture using the tradition that has been passed down to us, the intellect that God has gifted us with, and the experience that comes from living out our faith in our daily life.

Each week, our children participate in activities and lessons focused on guiding them through their individual growth processes, as young Christians learning to share life together in Christian community. Together, we learn that we can make a difference that matters, because we are wonderfully made by a God who is working to bring hope and love into the world that He created.


All children’s ministries are open and available to anyone, regardless of church affiliation or membership.
