Kids Club

Our Mission at Fleming Island UMC Kids Club is to create an environment in which all children feel welcome, safe, and loved while learning about God's love and growing in their faith.  We believe that even the youngest child can experience God's love.

Katie Strickland

Children's Minister

Hello! I am so excited you are interested in learning more about our Children's Ministry at Fleming Island UMC. You could quite possibly be meeting me for the first time and will ever only know me as Katie Strickland. However, many in our church know me as Katie Perry (my maiden name). That is because I grew up at Fleming Island UMC. I can genuinely say that this church and the people here hold a special place in my heart, and it all started when I was a kid! I want nothing more for this church and this children's ministry to be the special place for you and your child as it has been for me.

I started serving as the Children's Minster in August 2022. My husband Dusten and I were married in April 2015 at Camp Chowenwaw (Green Cove Springs). We have two young children: Henry and Addie, along with a dog, two chickens, a bunny, and a fish. It is safe to say that I pretty much live in a zoo!

What are we learning in Kids Club?

We understand that we sometimes have kids that can't make it to church on Sundays. We provide our children's lessons so they can continue to grow no matter what. Here you will find past and current lessons that include videos and handouts to help your child expand their understanding. These resources are also great for grown-ups who want to know more about their child's learning.
