Children's Ministry

Please feel free to join our private Facebook group called
“FUMC Dothan Children’s Ministry”

All 3rd-5th graders are invited to join us for Energize Camp at Blue Lake in Andalusia this summer! The week of June 24-28, campers will do everything from swimming in the lake to archery, capture the flag, GaGa ball, arts and crafts, and worship!
Each morning, kids will start their days off right with devotions at the lake. Evenings will also include a devotion time where campers will learn about His word through meaningful discussions about their faith and God!
Although each day of camp has its own unique flavor, every camp is held to the same high standards. Campers are supervised all week by Blue Lake’s staff as well as background checked church volunteers. This helps us make certain that every week of camp has all necessary components to provide a life-changing experience.
