Today, Sunday, November 27, all of the children will gather to practice their songs for the first 20 minutes of Sunday school and then spend the remaining time as a whole group in the Isaiah room with an Advent celebration lesson including putting together their own take home Advent daily devotional “pizza!”

Christmas program FULL rehearsal will take place Sunday, December 4 during the entire Sunday school hour in the sanctuary. There will be some activities for the children to do to keep their hands and minds busy while they are not singing. We invite as many parents as possible to help out with rehearsal so you know how the flow of the program will go and where your child needs to be at certain times. We can use all the help we can get!

You’re ALL invited to attend Ames First UMC’s Children’s Christmas Program “A Very Indie Christmas”! Join the children of First United Methodist Church on Sunday morning, December 11 at 10:00a.m. with a prelude beginning at 9:50a.m. featuring the wonderful instrumental talents of many of our children. This year’s Christmas program is a retelling of the Christmas story with an Indiana Jones theme. It will be adventure and excitement and Indie and her silent sidekick Jones travel to find the “great treasure”. They will bump in to many along their journey who help guide them in the right direction. You won’t want to miss it! We encourage all to join us and show your support for the children of this congregation as they retell the story in a new and fun way.
