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.

Nursery

Nursery is provided in room 121 for children ages 6 weeks to 2 years. All of our nursery employees are Safe Sanctuary trained.


Children’s Message

During our worship services, at both 8:30 and 11:00, children (of all ages) are invited and encouraged to come forward to hear from one of our Pastors or Lay Volunteers, a special moment just for our children.


Children’s Worship

Children ages 3 through 1st grade are invited to a worship service designed just for children. Our children’s worship begins immediately after the Children’s Message and is located downstairs in room 126. Our worship time is child-directed, experiential, and guided by the liturgical calendar.



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.
