Children’s Ministry

Sunday Evenings 5-6 pm
 
We have two age groups K-2nd  and 3rd-5th Grade.

Listening to God’s Story…

Our children learn God’s story every Sunday morning at 9am Bible stories and memory verses are learned. 

Listening to one another (PLAY!)…

Our children hear one another’s story during our Sunday night gathering at 5pm.  A mixture of play, food, Bible study and music gives children a fun, relaxed atmosphere to build relationships with each other, supervising adults* and God by hearing more Bible stories and praying together.
 
 *qualified under our safe sanctuaries policy

Being part of God’s Family….

Faith is not only taught, it is caught!  We give our families a chance just to be together.  Once a month, we offer the whole family a chance to relax together, build friendships and reflex on God’s love with fun events designed to engage the whole family.  
 
 

Feeling part of God’s Family….

During our 10am Connection and 10:30am worship, children are welcomed.  We have Bible Backpacks available should they want  to have some coloring books etc. to help them feel welcome and comfortable in worship.  This communicates how important they are to us and to God!

*Our Children’s Ministry is a Safe Sanctuary program!

 
Safe Sanctuaries® is simply an effort through policy and procedure to create a safe place for the most vulnerable of our church family and our visitors.  All our volunteers undergo background checks.  We do not allow anyone with a criminal background to work with our children (although they are welcome to participate in other areas of ministry). Safe Sanctuaries® is a “social structure that is consistent with the gospel” (Official UMC statement) allowing our sanctuaries, classrooms, mission encounters, camps and retreats, and all spaces where we gather to worship and serve God to be places of trust.
