worship offerings

Ages 6 to 12 Years - As children share in worship with their families, we offer: Children's Worship Pouches - religious coloring booklet, crayons and a pencil, blank paper for "Pew Art", and Pockets - an excellent children's devotional published by the Upper Room.

For over 60 years, The Weekday School of First United Methodist Church in Hendersonville has been touching the lives of children in Henderson County. Our church believes that each child is a child of God and should have every opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically to the fullest potential. 

It is our purpose to provide that opportunity for development through safe, nurturing care for the children and families of The Weekday School. 

In 2014, we earned a North Carolina license as a religious sponsored childcare provider. This license allows to better serve the families in our care by offering extending hours beyond our morning schedule.
