Things for the Children:
At Scott City FIrst United Methodist Church, we believe that children are a gift from God. We provide a wide variety of opportunities for children to hear and learn the stories of the Bible. Additionally, children are given the chance to apply these lessons in outreach, both locally and internationally. Through these opportunities, we pray that the foundation will be laid for a life of discipleship.
