At Vancouver First, we believe that engaging your mind is an important step on our Christian journey. Most classes are located on our lower level.  Please check the bulletin or the sign in the lower lobby for class locations.  Our current offerings are found below.

Activity Time (kindergarten and younger) – Any child, kindergarten and younger, is welcome to come by the nursery and playroom and participate in games, crafts, and stories. We look forward to seeing you there!

Christian Education Program @ VanFUMC

Children’s Christian Education

(K–5th grade) – Sundays at 10:10 a.m.

We are seeking volunteers (allowing for a rotation), to host two classes of Children’s Sunday School, divided by grades K through 3rd in one class and 4th through 5th in the other. After Children’s Moments in the Sunday morning service (about 10:10am or so), the younger children will gather with a leader and head the kindergarten room downstairs and be led to class by the volunteers. The older children will do the same but head to the “Junior High Room” located at the end of the hall downstairs. Both classrooms will contain the necessary materials needed for the lesson and activities of that day’s classes.

Youth Christian Education

(6th-12th grade)–  Justin Nutting and a rotating volunteer offers Youth Sunday School for those in grades 6th through 12th in the Youth Room every Sunday at 9:00am.

  • Middle School Youth Group meets on Sundays from 3:30pm to 5:00pm in the Youth Room.
  • Senior High Youth Group meets on Wednesdays from 6:30pm to 8:00pm in the Youth Room.
