logo_transparent_backgroundOur Mission:

D1Kids ministers to children of all ages – infants to 5th Graders – and their families.
The D1Kids Ministry is dedicated to honoring God by developing followers of Christ who will learn to share the Gospel with others.
We do this by offering opportunities for growth, development, service, and leadership while considering learning style and age differences in order to grow the Kingdom of God within the community of Dickson First United Methodist Church so that, someday, children will share their passion for Christ with their community.

D1Kids Leadership Team

D1Kids has an incredible team of volunteers! However we are always seeking new team members! Serving in D1Kids allows volunteers to inspire the future of our church by sharing God’s love with others.

Vacation Bible School (VBS):

Each summer D1Kids provides an exciting week where students will grow spiritually and experience God’s love in fun, new ways.
During VBS we strive to share the love of God and the story of Jesus with people who may not know the Gospel while also providing opportunities for those who have accepted Jesus to grow in their faith.
We aim to do this in a fun, fresh, and exciting way to get everyone pumped about living life with Christ!

Dickson First United Methodist follows a Safe Sanctuary policy that is designed to protect children and youth in the church. Children must be dropped off and picked up from their classes by a parent or guardian.

*Safety is a top Priority for all D1Kids Ministries! We are proud to implement Safe Sanctuary policies for all of our programs in order for parents to know that their children are safe while growing in their Faith.*
