Children’s Ministry

military aircraftWelcome to COMPASS KIDS, our newly rebranded children’s ministry program at FUMC Allen.

Why Compass Kids?

FUMC kids are on a mission to discover God’s direction for their lives and we are here, working with God’s Holy Word, to help them understand:

How do we follow Christ? Where is God leading us? How and where should we serve God?

Children’s Ministry is all about helping our children navigate the Bible and apply its teaching to their lives.  In turn, we are passionate about our Compass Kids pointing friends and family in God’s direction.

Can’t you just hear a child saying, “Follow me to Christ.”  Or, can you imagine seeing a child point their friends to FUMC because of what they’ve experienced on Sunday morning?

As children come through our doors, we would like them to know…
•God loves us unconditionally.
•We can trust God for everything.
•God gives us wisdom to serve others and to make good decisions.
