CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

"This, this is where children belong, welcomed as part of the worshiping throng.  Water, God's Word, bread and cup, prayer, and song: This is where children belong."

Written and composed by James Ritchie


At FUMC-Whitesboro, we seek to provide and enable children to experience and participate in the faith community, to know and develop their Christian faith and to become disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our goal is to partner with parents to help develop the growing faith of all our children.
