Children’s Activities

Children’s activities build life-long friendships at Mount Zion

Children’s activities which occur at different times of the year provide fun and life long friendships for our children in a Christian environment. Here’s a list of just some of our activities:

  • Corn Maze at the Garrison Farm in Anderson, SC
  • Bonfire and Hayride at the home of Scott and Karen Smith
  • Christmas Party (Breakfast)
  • Ice Skating at Ice on Main, Greenville, SC
  • Bowling at Tri City Lanes in Easley, SC
  • Easter Party and Egg Hunt
  • Movie Night at the church
  • Go-Karts and Putt-Putt at Sweet Retreats, Seneca, SC
  • Water Day at the church

All children’s activities are chaperoned by the pastor and/or the parents of the children. We follow the Safe Sanctuary Guidelinesof the United Methodist Church.

The church provides the admission fees and costs related to the children. While the children are forming friendships, the parents are also bonding! Transportation is provided by the parents. 

There are many benefits of a children’s ministry. A children’s ministry provides fun activities which makes them want to come to church. It helps them make new friends which fosters life-long friendships. For some children, these fun activities may be the only fun activities they experience. While having fun with their peers, these activities allow them to make friends with adult volunteers in a safe environment.

Fun activities are a big part of Children’s Ministry, but there are also character building aspects as well. The children are also involved in mission projects that involve doing good for others. Our children have been involved in making valentines for our shut-ins, preparation of Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes, and learning about the No More Malaria campaign of the United Methodist Church.
