VUMC: Children's Ministries
Head Image


Ignite is a youth group for children 4th - 6th grade, open to all children of the community. The group meets at the FUMC Family Center every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00p. During our time together we have a bible study/devotional and play games. We study the Bible and learn how to apply Jesus’ teachings to everyday life. We teach that Christianity is not only a belief but a way of life and we try to instill that in the children each Wednesday night. Our children learn valuable life lessons and have fun doing it, with their friends.

In addition to our weekly meetings, we plan on having several community service projects throughout the year and group activities for the children to enjoy. If you are looking for a fun, exciting, and energetic youth group come join us, and bring a friend. We welcome ALL children, regardless of background/denomination, to our youth group. Don’t miss out on being part of something great.
