“There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots; the other, wings.”
— Hodding Carter
A current challenge, also known as a wonderful problem, is the growth of our Children’s Ministry. The Children’s Council and Mister Mark have identified the need to add two classrooms to the Academy and have also identified the ideal space that is contiguous with our existing Children’s area (the current library). The library will be relocated in the current Bride’s Room and the Bride’s Room will move to the second floor to share a space with the Koinonia class.
This plan allows the Children’s Ministry to operate in a secure and safe area and keeps the Academy classes small enough that the children get individual attention while they learn and grow as Christians. Recognizing the importance of children’s ministry to our future, and giving them space to spread their wings is essential to the growth of FUMCFW.
