At Clayton 1st United Methodist, we encourage kids to continue connecting throughout the week! Our Wednesday Faith Builder’s program provides an opportunity for both members and the community at large to join in the food, fellowship, and fun! This ministry is extended to all children grades K5 – 6th.

Children are divided into four groups.

1.     Krispy Kritters (K5-1st)

2.     Kid Krunch (2nd-3rd)

3.     Kettle Korns (4th)

4.     Kaleidoscope Kandy (5th)  


6th Grade Mentoring is also available. Nursery is provided as needed to siblings of registered participants.


Check-in begins at 5:15, followed by a light supper from 5:30-6:00. Volunteer Leaders then take their respective groups for a jam packed 50 minutes of music, crafts & adventure in the Word! Dismissal/pick up @ 7:00.

The Fall Season will begin with a Kick-Off Pizza Party on September 18th complete with a Guest Clown, bounce house, photo booth, cookie decorating, games & crafts!

Music Ministry is a primary focus with an Annual Faith Builders Spring Musical. (2020 TBD) Last year’s production of “Down by The Creek Bank” by Dottie Rambo on April 24th was a huge success! A churchwide Wednesday Night Supper was held with proceeds designated to the church van fund.

Our regular Faith Builders calendar begins September 25th, follows the local school calendar and ends May 13th.  The Fall Theme is Psalm 81:10 “Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.”

Won’t you join us?

Sunday @ Clayton First UMC

At Clayton 1st we feel its important for children to learn how to worship and feel included as part of the congregation.

Our contemporary Connections Service (9:30am) begins with a time of family worship and prayer followed by a Children’s Moment. Children are then dismissed to age appropriate Sunday School classes located in the Creative Learning Center wing of the Family Life Center.

The Traditional Service (11:00) allows children an opportunity to observe and participate in a more formal atmosphere as they join in reciting the Apostles Creed & The Lord’s Prayer. After a short Children’s Moment, they are dismissed to Children’s Church in Fellowship Hall.

Nursery @ Clayton First UMC

Childcare is provided by our trained nursery staff during each worship service for children 0-4 years old. All staff members are required to complete the United Methodist Safe Sanctuary Training Program.

Connections Service: Childcare is available beginning at 9:15 a.m. in our Family Life Center. The nursery is located on the first floor in the Creative Learning Center.

Traditional Service: Childcare is available beginning at 10:45 a.m. in our Fellowship Hall located next door to the Sanctuary. The nursery is located on the lower level with the Children’s Church classrooms. Signage in the entry way will point you in the right direction!
