Children's Ministry Areas



Sunday School

Sunday is Funday at Jonesboro First UMC! Children's Sunday school meets from              9:40-10:40 a.m. every Sunday morning.

  • Children, all ages, meet on the first floor of the Education Building in the nursery area.
We use the dynamic "Grow, Proclaim, Serve" curriculum from Cokesbury Publishing. Our exciting, interactive lessons take us on a wonderful adventure through God's word.


Children's Church

Wiggly children are always welcome in the pews at Jonesboro First. However, we do offer children's church for children ages K4-3rd grade. Parents can bring their children to the Sanctuary for the first part of the service, then the children are invited to come to the front of the sanctuary and enjoy a children's moment to enjoy a children's moment on the steps with Pastor George. Afterwards they can either return to sit with their parents or they will be led to children's church with the adult leaders. Children may be picked up after worship upstairs in the Education Building.


Children's Choirs

We have one children's choir, that practices on Wednesday evenings. The choir is for children ages K4 through 5th grad and meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Education Building. The children sing throughout the year both at Wednesday night dinners and during the 11 a.m. worship service. Playground time is offered for children on Wednesday nights before and after choir practice. 



Our nursery is staffed by loving, caring, professional people who have decades of experience caring for infants and young children.

The nursery is open from 8:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Sunday mornings, 5-9 p.m. Wednesday evenings and for all other special worship services. Infants to children three years of age are welcome to stay in our nursery while parents are attending worship and Wednesday night activities. First-time visitors will need to fill out a registration and emergency information form for each child, so please plan your arrival time accordingly. Our top priority is to keep your children safe and well loved!
