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!

Sunday School

Come join us at 9:45 am on Sunday mornings for a full group "Chapel time", then following we break into grade-level classrooms. 
Classes for Pre-K through 5th grade. 
Drop-off starts at 9:40 am on the lower level of the church, in our Preschool Commons area. 
Pick-up is at the classroom door promptly after the 9:45 am worship service; Pre-K and K/1st grade are on the lower level, and 2nd/3rd and 4th / 5th are on the 2nd floor in the corridor to the right of the elevator. (once a month, we have the kids join us in worship for communion, and then sit with their families for the remainder of the service) 


Vacation Bible School
Join us in the summer for this fun program! Next summer's dates are to be announced in the spring! 

 A staffed nursery will be available for volunteers.

Upwards Basketball 2024

We are super excited to be hosting Upward Basketball again this year!
Registration typically is in October of each year with the season running the following January and February. 
Check back with us in the fall of 2024! 

Our program is for K5 - 8th and all teams are co-ed. Both experienced players and first-timer players are invited to join us.  Each team will practice for 1 slot during the week and play a game on Friday/Saturday.   Come, enjoy a great team experience and play basketball in a supportive, Christian environment. This is not only a sports program but a Christian model for sports. 

Whether you have a child playing in the league or not, we would LOVE your help with the program.  

We are so thankful for all the families that have participated in the past and the many others who volunteer their time to make this program special.  There are many ways to help from planning the end-of-season party to coaching/refereeing.  Email    if you are interested.
