    Sunday School - 10:00 a.m. - For all ages

  • Sunday School
    We believe children can learn and experience God's love at all stages of their life. That's why we offer Sunday School classes for infants on up to 12th grade.  We have many dedicated Sunday School teachers who have a heart for children. It is our goal to teach your child God's Word, apply it to their lives, encourage them to look up and memorize scripture, and connect with other people of the church of all ages.

  • Children in Worship
    We want children in worship! From infant on up, children are welcome in our worship services. Children learn to worship by watching their parents and grandparents. We understand that children may fidget and make noise from time to time. We know adults that do that too! We have a children's sermon at each service except on Communion Sunday.  Worship activity books are available at each service.

  • Baptism

    Through baptism we are initiated into the Body of Christ. Our primary means of baptism is through sprinkling; however, we both recognize and offer any form of baptism a parent desires for their child.  If you are interested in having your child baptized, contact Pastor Rick at rick@fumcbryan.org.
