Children’s Ministries

We love having children participate in our worship services! If you like, the ushers have activity bags with children’s bulletins and crayons for their enjoyment.

However, if you prefer, childcare for infants through second grade is available in the Activity Room (Room 206 on the second floor of the historic sanctuary building) and the MICAH childcare room on the first floor.  Greeters will be available and happy to direct you and your family.

Friendly, safe, loving care is provided by our on-staff Childcare Team and trained volunteers and is available from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Sunday.

Fits n’ Giggles– Parent Group

Do you enjoy eating crumbs off the floor and stealing a few moments on your phone while a toddler destroys your house? Well this group is for you!

Fits ‘n’ Giggles is a group with families of young children who meet every Sunday at Salem First United Methodist Church at 10:00 a.m. to talk, listen, learn and be in community with each other. We share stories, support each other, and tackle thought provoking topics. Oh, and we have snacks! Come join us! Click here for updates and upcoming events!
