We have your ticket to fun, faith-based adventures in learning about God!

In this new, exciting learning format, kids age 3 – 4th grade will study the same Bible story for one month in a variety of ways.  Kids rotate with their age group (preschool – 1st Grade and 2nd – 4th Grades) to a different workshop each week to experience the story in a new way.

Gray UMC Children’s Ministry Mission Statement

We believe that children are a gift from God and have gifts to offer in the ministry of the church. We believe also that the church shares the responsibility with the parents for the spiritual growth of each individual.

Therefore, it is our purpose to help children establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and continue to grow in their faith through learning, worshipping, serving, and fellowship.

Philosophy

We try to present the Gospel to children in an age-appropriate manner while they have fun learning about God. Our programs are diverse and offer many opportunities for volunteers to utilize their God-given talents to touch the lives of these precious members of God’s Kingdom. In this way, we embrace the entire church family and bring generations together. We try to reach out to children with special needs and to provide a ministry that is flexible and adaptable to each situation.
