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

The church provides the admission fees and costs for 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 lifelong 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.

Children’s Ministry Character Building Activities:

Fun activities are a big part of Children’s Ministry, but there are also character building aspects as well. The children are involved in mission projects that involve doing good for others. Our children have been involved in making valentines for our shut-ins, the preparation of Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes, and learning about the Methodist faith and the United Methodist Church through confirmation class.

 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. — Mark 10:13-16
