Children's Ministry

Welcome to Christ UMC Children’s Ministry! We are so excited for the opportunity to be in relationship with you and your family. Here at Christ UMC, children are an important part of the congregation. We seek to teach and lead children in the faith, but we also affirm the gifts of children to lead and serve.

 

We invite you to check out the many opportunities designed just for your children and family.

Ms. Aimee's Sunday Morning Show

Sunday Mornings

 

Nursery

Christ UMC does offer child care for Sunday School and Worship each Sunday morning. 

 

Children’s Message

During our worship service, at 10:30 in-person or livestream, children (of all ages) are invited and encouraged to hear from one of our Pastors or Lay Volunteers, a special moment just for our children.

 

Children Activity Tables

We weclome all of our children to use one of our activity tables located in the front of the sanctuary during in-person  service. In addition, we have activity items for children that can be selected in the Narthex for use during service.

 

Children Worship Participation

We believe that children are a vital part of our congregation and we seek to train them to lead in worship as often as possible. Once children are in 3rd grade, they are invited to be acolytes, scripture readers, and communion servers.

 

Sunday School

Sunday school is current offering at 9:15am in the downstairs level. The space may be accessed via the stairwell by the main sanctuary or the educational outside entry door located behind the main building.

Groups outside of Sunday Mornings

 

BANANA Club

BANANA Club stands for Believers Are Never Alone Nor Abandoned. Meeting on Sundays, it is a club for 5th and 6th graders at Christ United Methodist Church. We’ll laugh, learn about God and each other, and play some games. And of course, we’ll have fun!
