First United Methodist Preschool is a non-profit, tuition, self-supporting school. Its purpose is:
to provide a quality education program in a Christian environment that will promote each child’s cognitive, emotional, and spiritual growth;
to strengthen each child’s capacity to establish healthy and meaningful relationships with other children;
to learn respect for themselves and others;
to know God through Jesus, the church, and the world around them.
Confirmation refers to the personal decision to respond to God's grace with intentional commitment to Christ and His church, publicly reaffirming their baptismal vows before the congregation. Most confirmands are youth who have been nurtured in the church since their baptism as an infant or young child (though baptism and previous membership is not a requirement). All 6th grade students are welcome to attend Uth events for the entire school year.
Belong. Believe. Become.
At UTH we strive to be a family where a student can come as they are, feel comfortable and find a place to call their church home. We believe in family. Each student’s home family is important, but their church family is important as well. Being a part of a church is being part of a community learning, growing and doing life together.
