Children’s Ministry

The children’s ministry at Christ UMC welcomes all children from birth through 5th grade. A committed group of volunteers work each week to provide meaningful opportunities for children to learn and grow in a fun and safe environment. Through relevant and meaningful programs, it is our desire to see children and their families grow together on their journey to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ.

Children’s Worship

We welcome our children into our service during the gathering time, allowing them to experience the joys of singing and a time of prayer prior to a children’s message. They are released from service to gather in the Children’s Theater where they sing songs and prays prior to breaking out into small groups by ages.


Our nursery program provides a safe and caring environment for babies and infants. Here they are not only cared for by our skilled nursery attendant, but they are introduced to age-appropriate biblical principles.

Vacation Bible School

Every summer, our church hosts a fun and engaging week-long Vacation Bible School for local children. Through worship, Bible lessons, songs, crafts, and refreshments, these children are able to have an evening filled with fun, learning, and Christian growth.
