KidsFirst!

Explore the ministry opportunities for your children

Attention kids!

Fun times ahead! Come make some new friends and grow closer to Jesus. You won't want to miss out on any of the fun.



KidsFirst! at Royse City First United Methodist Church

At KidsFirst! our kids (infant through 6th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and explorative way.


We would love to meet you, and we'd love to welcome your kids into Kids First! To visit us on a Sunday morning, let us know you're coming!




Meet our KidsFirst! Children's Coordinator

Wanda Pille is a treasured member of our church. She loves the kids here like she would her own. She sees the potential in every child, and encourages them to grow their faith in Christ.



What to expect on Sundays

During Worship on Sundays

8:30 and 11:00


All children are invited during the worship service to participate in Young Disciples Time. One of our volunteers will teach a kid-friendly Bible lesson as part of worship.


Immediately following Young Disciples Time, all children (3rd grade and below) are invited to attend Children's Church in Wesley Hall. We love having kids in the pews (we even provide busy bags to help!) during worship, but Children's Church is a fun learning opportunity for those who may need a more active experience during the second half of the worship service.


Sunday School

9:45-10:45


Pre-K (4 year olds) + Kindergarten meet downstairs in Wesley Hall

Grades 1-6 meet upstairs in Wesley Hall


We use engaging materials, hands-on activities, and our beautiful children's spaces to draw children closer to Christ. Have you toured upstairs in Wesley Hall? It's the hidden treasure on our church campus! Hand-painted with love by members of our congregation, our children's areas are beautiful. We have a fun large-group area, an art studio, a kitchen for young chefs, and even a movie theater! Your kids will love it here.

Preteens and teenagers (sixth grade and up) may participate in this meaningful opportunity. Study the Bible, learn about the Methodist Church, grow close as a group, and have fun! At the end of classes, participants may officially join the church.

Vacation Bible School

Summer 2021

The Summer 2021 theme is Discovery on Adventure Island!


From a whimsical lighthouse on an enchanted island, Explorers are guided by a Lighthouse Keeper and Beacon the Puffin on an exciting quest to find five mysterious Infinity Lanterns to help light their way. Using map coordinates from the Reference Book (the Bible), children discover clues to finding each Lantern while learning how God's light shines in the lives of familiar biblical characters in Old and New Testament stories.


Camp Bible

Hoping to go again in September, 2021


Kids in grades 3-5 may join us for sleep-away camp at Bridgeport Camp in Bridgeport, TX. There's lots of fun to be had there- singing, crafts, worship, and Bible stories.
