There are many opportunities for Children and Youth at 1st UMC Plainwell!

Childrens Time – Every Sunday during worship

1st Kidz – 1st Kidz is a new children’s ministry designed for busy families, and a way to encourage families to worship together on Sunday morning. Rotation Stations are set up in our new “Kidz Zone”, allowing parents and kids to experience five different learning activities. Celebration Station (explains worship), Narration Station (hear a 5 minute Bible story), Memorization Station (to remember God’s word), and the Imagination Station (create a visual craft). The rotations will stay basically the same for 9 weeks, so they can do one, or as many as they like, in whatever order they like. The Kidz Zone will be available 20 minutes before or 20 minutes after the worship service on Sunday mornings, allowing families to stay together for both learning and worship. The adults are welcome to participate along with their kids, but we also have a comfortable lounge area up there to just relax in and enjoy a cup of coffee!

Plainwell Youth FB Page – On Sunday’s, videos for Elementary and Middle School Sunday School as well as High School Youth are posted on the Plainwell Youth fb page. Both of these videos are short, but have designated times for kids to pause the video and think about the questions asked. For the Elementary and Middle School videos, these are made with the assumption that a parent will be present to help with some of the activities. Our hope is these videos will help inspire family wide conversations about the bible! To join, click the link above or search Plainwell Youth on facebook and leave a message!

Teen Serve – An outreach missions trip once annually usually in late June or July that many of our youth attend.
