Welcome to Noblesville First Family Ministry! We are so excited to have you. We believe in being rooted in love, connecting with people, and planting seeds of hope. We create spaces where you and your families can experience worship, programming, and events in a fresh, new way. Our Family Ministry is structured so that every lesson is something that can be built upon, take root, and will last for years to come. Our available programming is listed below.
Join us on Sundays at 9:45 in Celebration Hall for a worship experience centered on families. Through music, games, and discussion groups, we create an environment where caregivers and children of all ages can learn about Jesus together. It is an opportunity to redefine what Sunday morning worship looks like. We would love for you and your family to join us at Family Worship!
On Sunday mornings at 10AM, we have adults, youth, and children small groups meeting throughout the building. Kids birth-12th grade will engage in age-appropriate games, activities, and discussion topics until 10:45AM. The breakdown of classes and locations is as follows:
- Infants - Nursery off of Atrium (Blue Class)
- Toddler- Toddler room off of Atrium (Pink Class)

During the week, middle and high school students will meet throughout the week in different locations in Devotion Groups (D-Groups).
Our middle and high school students meet monthly to embark on adventures around the city to learn from each other, connect with their community, and have fun. We also offer regular events throughout the year that are fun for the whole family!
The Student Ministries Bonfire for students 6th-12th grade is scheduled for Sunday, September 26 (time TBD) at 10566 E 206th St, Noblesville.
There will be s'mores, drinks, and a big group game. Bring a lawn chair, bug spray, and a friend!

And for Youth Group nights and small groups, we could use donations of boxed candy, soda cans, water bottles, paper plates, napkins, lemonade mix and individually packaged snacks.

Safe Sanctuaries video training
Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression in making congregations within the United Methodist Church safe places where children, youth, and vulnerable adults may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith. We're doing everything in our power to keep our most precious assets safe while they are at Noblesville First. After viewing the video, you must complete the Safe Sanctuaries virtual quiz and then sign the Safe Sanctuaries document with the Director of Family Ministries present.
