First United Methodist Church, Murfreesboro, TN

Education at FUMC
Matthew 9:35 tells us that Jesus "went through all the towns and villages teaching." At First Methodist, we believe that education is important at every stage of life. For this reason, we offer educational opportunities for our children, youth, and adults. Use the links below to find out about the programs we provide for each of these age specific ministries:

Children: The goal of our children's ministry is to providing love, support and programming so that our children know themselves to be God's children. Find out more here.

Youth: includes youth from grades 7 through 12. Weekly get-togethers include studies, activities, games and fellowship in an atmosphere of acceptance, fun and food for the spirit and the body! Our focus: seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and other believers, studying the scriptures and discovering Jesus and themselves! More details at

Adults Classes: Classes are designed to meet your spiritual needs and offered at 9:45 AM each Sunday. See a list of classes with more information here.
