There are two wonderful caregivers available from 9:45 - 11:45 a.m. on Sunday's, unless otherwise posted. Care is given downstairs in the nursery.


Children's Sunday school (3 years old-5th grade)

Our children have a great time learning tried and true spiritual concepts taught by our enthusiastic teachers! Currently, we are following a new curriculum from Progressive Christianity, in addition to utilizing science and creativity to connect with God in our everyday lives. Our teachers and students enjoy the stories that enlighten us to God and the teachings of Christ and the activities and crafts that remind us of our weekly affirmations.


Registration forms must be filled out by each family the first day a child attends Sunday school of each year. Registration forms can be found by contacting Missy Jaynes or with your current Sunday school teacher. Children must be picked up and signed out by a parent or guardian from their classrooms after service.

Children's Program (K-6th)

Throughout the year, children of Reno FUMC enjoy a wide variety of programs. Last year we reintroduced the much missed Vacation Bible School (VBS). Other programs children can participate in include acolyte training and participation, Sweet Vibrations bell choir, not to mention the various other seasonal activities around Christmas, Easter, Trunk or Treat and many other events.

Most children take their scripts and music sheets home to practice during the week! You do not have to be a member of our congregation to participate in our programs. Please come check us out as programs interest you and your family!

Serving Christians around Reno Sparks

We meet the first Friday of each month for First Fun Fridays at Reno First UMC 6-9 p.m.

We will enjoy dinner, fellowship, games, art opportunities, and Sanctuary time focusing on discussion and spiritual exploration with the use of video and music. We are also learning about service with different projects that will benefit our families, church and our community. We will also be encouraging the youth to be a mentor with our Sunday school class under a teacher's supervision. There are summer opportunities for leadership and faith camps, and conferences. We also have Youth Retreats and lock-ins.


We offer a confirmation class every 2 years for our 7th and 8th graders. It is a yearlong course that studies the fundamentals of our faith as United Methodists. We not only study scripture, and learn our history, but we take time to learn what our friends around us are worshiping and how they do it. Congratulations to our 2015 Confirmation class. We are planning for our next class in 2017.

Parents should review the guidelines that describe parental interests and responsibilities as given here.
