Children’s Ministries

Your resource for discovering some of the many ways your children can learn more about Jesus and get involved in the life of First Church. 



Vacation Bible School

This year’s Vacation Bible School will be held on June 6-9 from 5:30-8 p.m. Our theme this year is Knights of North Castle. Children ages three-years through fourth grade are welcome to attend and will participate in interactive, energizing, Bible-based programming as they go on a quest in search of the “King’s Armor.” Here they will become knights and discover how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives. 

We are still in need of an assembly leader to lead the opening and closing VBS activities each day. If you are interested, please contact Sara Joines at or call 704-857-9713 ext. 12. 

A downloadable registration form for Vacation Bible School can be found here. These can be dropped off at the church office anytime between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or sent directly to the Knight’s of North Castle Team at the above email. For questions about the event, contact the church office at 704-857-9713. 

If you would like to help with the purchase of supplies for VBS visit our Amazon Wish List . You can also donate monetary gifts by placing it in the offering plate with the designation of V.B.S. Thank you all for supporting our Children’s Ministry at First United Methodist China Grove.
