Children

Welcome! Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them, and teaching them God’s Word. 

At Fredericksburg United Methodist Church we strive to do that by offering a variety of activities to get children excited about Christ!  If you have any questions about our children’s programs, please call our Director of Children’s Ministry, Jillian Murray.  Also, follow FUMC Children's Ministry on Facebook for up-to-date information on all things kids-related. Come join the fun as we learn and praise Jesus!
