Discovering Jesus: 

The Adventure of a Lifetime

Kids Discover God

Discovery Park is a place where kids come to discover who God is and how much He loves each of us. Here children can make new friends and learn from youth and adults who love Jesus. Whether you have children who would like to attend or are interested in volunteering in children’s ministry, we welcome you to Discovery Park!

Parents get involved

Our children 2 years old through 5th grade use HeartShaper curriculum which offers a strong biblical foundation for children and provides resources for families to use at home during the week.  Each student receives a weekly take-home paper with stories, activities, connection to the lesson for families to continue learning during the week.

A safe place

All of our classroom volunteers complete a criminal background check, must provide references, and are trained in the policies of First Missionary Church. Each classroom is staffed with at least 2 individuals. Children are checked in electronically, given a sticker with a unique code matching only the adult who brought them, and are released only to this adult when class is over.

VBS 2019

This summer, June 3-7, our kids will be "traveling" to Athens for Vacation Bible School! If you would like to register your child(ren) for VBS, you can download the registration form here to print out, or you can pick one up at Children's Check-in. If you have any questions about VBS or registration, please talk to Kate.


If you would like to volunteer during this exciting week, please contact Kate (kate@fmcberne.com).
