It is the vision of our Kenton First Methodist Children’s Ministry Team to partner with parents to build families that not only KNOW and LOVE God but to help them build relationships that will help them grow into mature Christians that will SERVE others and make disciples with God’s guidance for the rest of their lives. We hope to give children and families the tools and support to encourage them to follow Christ on a daily basis as well as worship together as a community.

Sunday School

Classes for all ages, Toddlers-Pre-K, Kindergarten-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade, Middle School (6th-8th grade), High School(9th-12th grade), along with several Adult classes, College/Young Adult, Parenting, Sarah Circle, Friends of Jesus, Firm Foundation.

Each Class gathers at 10:00am in their classroom to join in a time of fellowship as they follow the curriculum lead by caring teachers. We strive to give all ages an opportunity to encounter Christ’s Love and dig deeper into the Word of God through age appropriate studies. New Friends are welcome at anytime and adults are encouraged to visit more than one of the adult classes until you find the best class for you!

Kid’s Club

Kids’ Club is our midweek program (Sept-Easter) for ages 4 years-5th grade. We meet Wednesday nights at 6:00pm for dinner with ministry from 6:30-8:00pm. The goal of our Kids’ Club Ministry is to join the families on their quest to build a spiritual foundation by teaching biblical truths in relevant ways that empower and guide the children to form a personal relationship with Christ as they grow up to Love God and show his love to others through acts of service to become disciples for God.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is our 5 day long Summer Community-Wide Program. The week is built around a Biblical theme that includes areas of Bible lessons, creative crafts, music, drama and fun games that all link together to teach and lead the children to form a personal relationship with Christ built on a foundation of God’s Truths for their life.


Our goal at Kenton First Christian Preschool is to grow happy, intelligent, well-adjusted children who have a love for Christ and a passion for learning. Here you will find a nurturing educational environment for children 3-5 years of age. We offer 2 class options

> 2 days a week Tuesday & Thursday from 9:00am-11:30am
> 4 days a week Monday-Thursday from 12:30pm-3:30pm.

Nursery Care

Nursery care is provided during Sunday morning services and on Thursday nights.  Infants to Kindergarten-aged children will receive loving and interactive care from our volunteer teem during any portion of the worship service.  Parents may use this space at any point in the service to care for any diapering or feeding needs as well.

Girl Scouts

The mission of Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Several area troops meet on Monday and Tuesday nights in the Education Wing. Please contact Girl Scouts of Western Ohio at (513) 489-1025 or email for more information.

Boy Scouts

On Tuesday nights Local Troop #150 meets in the basement. This is a traditional Scouting experience for young men in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement, and leadership development are the key focus of this program as the youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout. For more information on how to join this troop please contact Boy Scouts of America (419) 227-2107.


Our ministry is supported by a dedicated and caring team of adult and teen volunteers. The Safety of our children is a top priority for us. To ensure the safety of our children, everyone who volunteers in our program has undergone a background check, conducted by an independent agency and follows our Safe Sanctuary guidelines during all of our activities.
