Children’s

Downtown Kids is a children’s ministry that offers a service built for kids that includes a meal, worship, games, lessons, and modules!

Modules are small group oriented ‘classes’ that a student takes for six weeks for the last half of the Wednesday night program where we use hands on skills to learn about life skills (teamwork, respect, trust, etc.)! Different modules that students can take include: art, theatre, science, cooking, LEGO, sports, camping, farming, and more! (Modules change from quarter to quarter)

We currently meet Wednesday nights at Mattoon First United Methodist Church at 5:30 p.m. every week unless otherwise stated! We also have a Kids Choir program at 4:45 till kids church starts!

If you would like your child to join then just come on Wednesday nights and register when you get here! If there are any questions you would like answered before coming please feel free to call Jordan Thomas at the church!

If you would like to volunteer for Downtown Kids then please contact Jordan Thomas on the staff page!

Downtown Kids joined First Christian Church last night, Wednesday, October 25, for Halloween activities!!  What a blast we had!  The children and their parents painted pumpkins, decorated cookies, got their faces painted, etc!
