Children's Discipleship

At Topeka First UMC

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Welcome to Children's Discipleship!

Everything we do is designed to equip children to connect, grow, and serve for the good of the city. If you're looking for fun activities, creative worship, community-minded outreach, and engaging life-lessons from the Bible, then you and your children belong at Topeka First UMC. We'll help them connect with our church family, grow in their faith, and learn to serve others with glad hearts. 

Current Children's Programming:

Our passion is to spiritually equip children to develop personal relationships with Jesus by inspiring young faith and presenting the gospel in understandable terms.


Online and in-person Sunday School take place from 9:15-10:15 a.m. each Sunday (unless otherwise noted). To join online Sunday School, click here. For in-person programming, masks are required for all children 2 years or older.

What Else?

In addition to specific programming for children, we want children to feel welcome in worship! Each week, we have children's bulletins that go along with the lesson from Sunday School and children's sermon notes sheets that kids can use to follow along with the service. Kids can turn these sermon notes in for a prize! We also offer Grace Spaces to children and their families. These are areas in the chapel and the sanctuary with kid-friendly seating and activities. 

To bring the fun home with you, we have Church-to-go bags that are available by the exit or in the free library outside the front door! Take one for yourself and one to share with a friend!
