Children, Youth, and Family Ministries at River Falls UMC
 
 
 

As a vibrant, growing, curious congregation, we provide opportunities for our children, our youth, our families, and our community to cultivate faith and expand our relationship with God. As we deepen our spiritual qualities, we move from intention to action, both inside and outside the church walls. Our focus is to expand our spiritual educational ministry, both traditional and progressive.

 

Sunday Morning at River Falls UMC

Everyone is welcome in worship at River Falls UMC, and that includes children! We love the life and energy that kids bring to our worship services, and believe that they grow into the ways we pray and sing and worship by being present with us. There is a nursery available during worship for kids 3 years old and under as desired by families.

Frolic First Faith is a curriculum designed specifically for this age and includes parent-child classes on the second Sunday of every month, and parents are invited to participate any other week as well!

Second Sunday Service Projects: On the second Sunday of each month, 2nd - 12th grades will work together on projects to serve our community, both near and far, encouraging them to live their faith both in and outside these walls. Adults are encouraged to join as chaperones, leaders and participants in all the service projects the youth are involved in.

Adult Education: There are a wide variety of subjects presented for adult education throughout the year. They range from longer-term book studies, to single day speakers, and everything in between on a wide variety of topics designed to challenge adults to continue to grow in faith.
