Children’s Ministries

At Cumming First UMC, we believe that our Children’s Ministry is a place where a child’s foundation in their faith can firmly be planted.  We guide children to know, show and grow God’s love creating strong roots.   Each week we create fun and an intentional relationship with Jesus, that can grow and flourish.
