CHILDREN (Pre-K--5th Grade) & FAMILY

Welcome to the Children's Ministries of Chelsea First United Methodist Church! You can contact the Children's Director Susan Adam-Rita HERE if you have questions. 
All of our programming is designed to encourage children to BLAST - Boldly Learn And Serve Together!  We want each child to learn to love and trust God, love, and serve others, and develop an everyday faith.  But an hour or two on Sunday mornings simply isn't enough.  Children need to worship, serve others, and engage in faith conversations with their families.  In partnership with parents, the church provides tools, resources, and support, and offers many family faith-building opportunities.
Our Mission:  We help children learn, embrace, and live out Jesus' greatest commands to love God and love others:
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength . . .  and love your neighbor as yourself." Mark 12:30-31
On Sunday mornings during BLAST, dedicated adult and youth leaders focus on developing relationships with the children in their care as they teach them to live like Jesus, by loving God and loving others.

We also seek to partner with and equip parents to be their child's primary spiritual teacher by offering family faith-building mission, service, and worship opportunities, and by providing materials for faith at-home experiences.
