Welcome to First Kids!

We’re glad you’re here! First Kids, the children’s ministry of First United Methodist Church, Lubbock Texas, is a place where faith, imagination, and learning go hand in hand.  We believe the best way to prepare our kids for the future is to help them fall in love with Jesus, and connect them with safe, loving adults who model following Jesus and invest in their lives. 

First Kids utilizes a unified curriculum approach from birth through fifth grade, building upon biblical truths and helping kids apply these truths in real life. Our Sunday School classes follow a small group format where kids get to experience God's word in a creative, engaging, and relational environment. 

Who We Serve

First Kids serves infants through 5th graders, and their families.  We are excited about all of the great opportunities available for your kids at First Kids and look forward to seeing you soon!


The Children’s Department is located in our three-story Education Wing. The Children’s Education Building provides a kid-friendly atmosphere for our children to worship, learn and grow. The nursery, preschool classrooms, and our Parent's Day Out classrooms are found on the first floor. The second floor contains Sunday school rooms for Kindergarten through 3rd grade children, and our 4th-5th graders meet on the 3rd floor in RM 304.
