Children's Ministries @first

Ankeny First United Methodist Church


Children from birth to 5th Grade are an important part of the ministry at Ankeny First United Methodist Church. We offer a variety of special activities and programs for children and families to grow together in their faith, as well as to reach out and invite others to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ. 
Each year, we provide special programs and events for children from Sunday School, Bible Adventures, KULE Kids, Vacation Bible School, Third Grade Bible Presentations and Fairs, Easter Egg Hunt, Super Summer Daze, Trunk or Treat, Advent Festival and other special events. More information is available on these events through the links below.
Our hope is that children and families grow together and experience Christ in a real way. For more information on this ministry, contact Emily Kupris, 515-964-4249, director of Children’s Ministries.

At Ankeny First, our desire is to encourage the musical potential God has gifted to each child by developing musical skills including expressive tuneful singing, artful movement, instrument playing for the purpose of participating in individual and corporate worship. Our children's ensembles rehearse weekly during the school year and present the music they learn periodically in various worship services. Contact Amity Wagner for more information.

Sports Ministry at Ankeny First United Methodist Church exists to involve adults and children in a transformational relationship with Jesus Christ through sports, recreation, and fitness ministries.  Sports, recreation, and fitness activities create a unique way for individuals to unite and create a special community. We want to take that common bond created by athletics and use it as a platform to share the love of Christ with our friends, families and the community.

Throughout the year, we offer a variety of activities for adults and children.  Explore the link above to find out how you can get involved in sports ministries at Ankeny First United Methodist Church.
