Wednesdays at First
Wednesdays at First is one of the best ways to get connected and deepen relationships with others at FUMC Burleson since we believe that faith is stronger in community. Intentionally designed with people of all ages and stages in mind, this program offers activities for anyone and everyone. For parents of children infants - age 4, nursery is provided during all after-dinner activities.
Wednesdays at First takes place on Wednesday afternoons and evenings during the school year and follows the Burleson Independent School District calendar in regard to holidays and inclement weather shutdowns.
One of the best ways to connect is to serve alongside others by volunteering. We periodically offer PLACE classes to help identify volunteer interests, strengths, and skills if you are unsure how you may help.
K.I.D. Connection & Choir (K-grade 5)
K.I.D. Connection (Kids in Discipleship) is an exciting opportunity for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade to have fun together and learn more about God. Through Bible stories, hands-on activities and crafts, music, and much more, children are able to explore the beginnings of faith and develop deeper relationships with each other.
As part of our K.I.D. Connection program, children K - 5th grade participate in Children's Choir. We prepare music to sing in worship as they learn musical and spiritual concepts. Each child is encouraged and affirmed in the gifts and talents they have to offer to our church. They prepare music for worship as well as special musicals during the year.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to join us for a time of fellowship over food. This is a great chance to connect with others and develop and deepen friendships. We provide a kid-friendly food option for families, and a freewill donation is appreciated but not required to help cover the cost of our weekly meal. All who attend are encouraged to help with clean up afterward so that people may readily head to 6:00pm activities.
