Children’s Ministry

Welcome to Community UMC Children’s Ministry!

We are a church who loves and welcomes children of all ages. We strive to provide a safe, fun, and educational environment to keep kids engaged and wanting to come back each week! We offer something for kids of any age.

NURSERY (Infants through 3 year olds): Our nursery is staffed by a professional caregiver each week, along with a volunteer parent, who welcome and care for our infants and toddlers so that Mom and Dad can relax, focus, and enjoy the adult service. An age appropriate Bible lesson will be introduced to the 3’s, along with a simple craft and snack.

SCHOOL AGE (Preschool through 5th grade): We have Sunday School each week at both the 9:00 and 10:45 services. Children will grow in their relationship with Christ through an interactive, hands-on Bible lesson. We promote different learning styles, from crafts to games to science experiments and drama- all to reinforce the theme of the week. Our 4 year olds through Kindergarten meet in one room and 1st through 5th in another.

OUR PASSION is to teach our kids outreach and service to the community. Throughout the year, we will visit nursing homes, create care kits for the homeless, collect school supplies for kids in need, collect canned goods at Thanksgiving, participate in a Giving Tree at Christmas by “adopting” families, and other various service projects to show the love of Christ to our world.

SAFE SANCTUARY POLICY: Our Children’s Ministry follows our church’s Safe Sanctuary policy. To read our policy and access the Safe Sanctuary forms, please visit our Safe Sanctuary webpage.
