Vacation Bible School
At Topeka First UMC
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.
