Children’s Ministry at Dearborn Free Methodist Church is called Character Town. It is led by a team of staff and volunteers who are passionate about children!  Our vision is to introduce and connect kids to God and others, and lead them to help others do the same by helping them develop Godly character and maturity in their faith.   We are lead by Luke 2:52 which says, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and in favor with God and man.” 

WHere God builds character in us so we look more like him!

By the time kids graduate from 5th Grade we want them to have a grasp of these 3 truths:
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Watch our Kid's video for Lent called Fast, Hurry Up!  It is a video that helps kids learn about fasting during the 40 days of Lent.
