Children's Ministry

Serving our youngest of members is what we are all about. From hands-on learning environments to creative versions of church that are kid friendly. We have it going on!

Sunday School

Due to COVID-19, Sunday school will be held on Sundays at 3 pm until further notice. Social distancing guidelines are in place, and we are following the CDC’s
recommendations. We hope to be able to see your children’s smiling faces and be safe at the same time.
Our Children’s Ministry runs Sunday School classes every week using the Grow Curriculum for preschoolers to fifth graders. In our classes, we emphasize discipleship and bible teaching, as well as fun.

Monthly Gatherings

Each month we host an activity for kids or even the entire family. Our activities are both fun and educational while they teach the whole family about having a heart for giving and love for Jesus.
Some of our past events include:
Advent Workshop (Christmas),
Day in Jerusalem (Easter),
Trunk‘r-Treat (Halloween).

Vacation Bible School

We host a VBS every year that is open to the public. This summer, our VBS was online, so we could keep our volunteers and kids safe, but we hope to put on a
condensed in-person VBS using the Knights of North Castle curriculum this winter. Our VBS week always ends in a family day with water, food, and lots of fun!

Parent’s Night Out

We have a parent’s night out ministry that typically happens once a month. We have not been able to have this since last year due to COVID-19, but we hope to
restart this program soon!

Kids Connect

Every week our church has a Wednesday Night Recharge Service. This Service includes dinner,
a short worship service, and classes for all ages after. KidsConnect is for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. We use the Grow Curriculum and reinforce what they are learning on Sundays. Recharge will start up again next year.

Day School Chapel

Our children’s director teaches chapel in the sanctuary for the students at the Methodist Day School. Chapel is weekly and also follows the Grow curriculum. The session includes a short Bible lesson, singing, and dancing.
