Children’s Ministry


A place where Faith, Imagination, and Learning go hand in hand.

Downtown Kids is the Children’s Ministry area at the First United Methodist Church of Castle Rock.  At FUMC, we believe that children should be seen and heard all around the church and the community.  Our programs are designed to start children on a journey of faith that will last a lifetime.


A nursery is available for children ages birth to 5 years and is available for the 9:00 and 10:45am worship services  The nursery is located on the lower level and is staffed by consistent and caring caregivers.


Preschool – Our preschool program for ages 3-4 years meet in their own classroom each Sunday with dedicated teachers who make a yearly commitment.  It is our hope that when the preschoolers enter elementary school that they will know how much God loves them and that they are very special.

Elementary – Our elementary program for ages K-6th grade is a place where loving God is cool and kids rule!  Each week kids will experience something new, exploring different aspects of a story through art, games, cooking, storytelling, music, mission projects, and much more!

We look forward to you taking this journey with us.

The First United Methodist Church is a place where children are protected and cared for by loving staff and volunteers who are trained to create an environment where parents can freely and confidently leave their children, a place where kids feel happy to participate in all activities with other kids and leaders.  To help us facilitate your children’s safety, your cooperation in dropping off and picking up your children personally is appreciated by teachers, staff, and your children.
