At FUMC, the Kid's Ministry exist to partner with parents to teach children the all encompassing love of God and to enable them to know his love personally and share His love with others.
We have several ministry offerings such as Sunday School, Children's Church, Children's Choir and small group Bible Studies that are a fun time to learn about God's love!
Anchored Student Ministries is a place where students grades 7th – 12th are encouraged to take up the mantle of their faith in new and exciting ways. Our name is based on Hebrews 6:19 " We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters the inner shrine behind the curtain". We know that these years are crucial in the spiritual development of our students and offer them a place to grow in their faith through worship, study, community, and conversation.

Our senior adult group is called M&M, which stands for Modern and Mature. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. We have a meal and a program, and we rotate the meeting location between the Family Life Center on our campus and restaurants in the community. We also take several day trips throughout the year, and we have a mission to our nursing homes of making placemats for holidays throughout the year as well.

Children of all faiths and nationalities are welcome. We have special programs which the children conduct throughout the year, and senior pastor leads a chapel service for the 3 and 4 year old classes each Wednesday.
As important as our corporate worship is together on Sunday morning, we grow in faith best when we join with others to study the Bible, learn what it means to follow Jesus in our daily living, and have support and encouragement in that journey.
At Philly First, we offer a variety of groups on Sunday morning and Wednesday nights. We have five small groups which meet on Sunday morning during the traditional Sunday School hour of 9:00 a.m. Most of these groups have a designated teacher and standard curriculum, though one of our groups uses more video-based studies, and they study a wide range of topics from a biblical perspective.
Wednesday NIght Live! (WNL!) begins on Wednesday nights with a meal served from 5:00-5:45 p.m in the Family Life Center, which is connected to the main church building by a breezeway and is accessible from the main church parking lot.
