 Children are important to us!
 
The happiness and safety of our children is a priority at Dexter First United Methodist Church. We provide safe, comfortable spaces for them to learn and play. All paid staff and volunteers are Safe Sanctuary certified. 
 
Childcare with a paid staff member is offered during all of our worship services. Our nursery is equipped with a pager system to alert parents when their child needs them and we also have a comfortable, private space in our Prayer Room where you may sit with your child and still hear the worship service.
 
During our 11:00 a.m. Traditional Worship, children age 3 through 5th grade may go to Kids 1st Church after the Children's moment in the service. Kids 1st Church offers an age appropriate lesson and craft time.
 
Kingdom Kids, a Wednesday afternoon program for children in kindergarten through 5th grade, meets when Dexter schools are in session.  Our church bus picks up children at Southwest and Central Elementary schools. Children enjoy snacks, crafts, and Bible lessons. Occasionally we have a "game day" in our recently remodeled game room or a "movie day" in the loft theater. Parents are asked to pick their children up at the church by 5:00 p.m.
 
Special activities during the year include, Vacation Bible School, a Children's Christmas Program, skating parties, and "Trunk or Treat."
