HIS KIDS is our mission…We are the missionaries!
The HIS KIDS mission follows the Scriptural message, “Train up a child in the way they should go, & even when they are old, they will never depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
This after school ministry teaches Christian values and character development to 1st–5th graders to give children a positive spiritual direction for their journey through life. We teach about God and his love for them with Bible lessons, activities, music and snacks. The HIS KIDS program achieves our FUMC (First United Methodist Church) mission, “Loving God, Sharing Faith & Serving Neighbors.”
Most children in the Mineola community do not attend a home church and we believe it takes a village to raise a child, especially faithful, spiritual servants of the Lord which makes our community a better place to live. Volunteers share their time, talents and Christian knowledge to introduce children to Jesus. The foundation of the HIS KIDS curriculum educates the students about Jesus Christ, his life, his teachings and especially his never-ending love for us.
We provide a safe, friendly and rewarding environment for students to gain Biblical knowledge. Investing in children enhances their future and ours as we promote Jesus’ Great Commission, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20.
FUMC vans bring the children from Mineola/Alba/Golden schools. All students arrive, enjoy a snack, study their Bible lesson, sing in music class and make a craft to reinforce their Bible message.
1st & 2nd graders learn about PRAYER: WHO we pray to, WHAT we pray for, WHEN we pray, WHERE we pray & WHY we pray.
3rd graders are introduced to the Bible, who wrote it, what it means to us, why we read it and how it helps us. At the end of our spring semester they receive their own hardbound Adventure Bible. 4th graders learn the books of the Bible and find Scripture to answer some of the challenges they face. 5th graders learn the authors of the Bible, locate Scripture, study Genesis, learn Bible facts and Bible application to their lives. Program and dinner for parents, relatives and friends on our last day each spring.
CHILDREN’S SERMON - This special time during church service gives children the opportunity to participate and learn God’s word as it applies to their lives.
