Sunday School Time at Home

During this unprecedented season, help your children grow in their relationship with Jesus! Watch the Bible story together and read the age-appropriate lesson. Games, coloring pages, and other activities help to reinforce this valuable lesson on believing and faith. 

Join us on Sunday for Zoom Sunday School.

Following Jesus
As Christians, we need to give of our financial resources, but we can also give of our time, energy, talents, and attention to others.
This is a lesson for the whole family!
Special Games you can play with your children.

Nursery Care

The UMCL Nursery is available to children from newborn to age 5. Our nursery is staffed by childcare workers who provide a loving, safe, clean and secure environment for your children. All childcare workers have passed background checks and we abide by the Safe Sanctuary guidelines established by the United Methodist Church.

Sunday School

Preschoolers thru 5th graders are welcome to join our Sunday School activities available during Sunday morning worship services. Children will begin in the sanctuary with their families and participate in the Children’s Message during worship. Children then gather in their classrooms for their own religious studies and activities. Parents pick up their children after the service has ended. Guests are welcome!

---Special Programs

All Stars for Jesus

Children in grade 3 – 5 are encouraged to participate in bible study and relationship building programs outside of Sunday School. All-Stars for Jesus is their opportunity to explore the Bible with their peers to gain a better understanding of their faith and church community. Activities include eating dinner together and playing games to strengthen friendships while having fun!

Music Programs

Music is essential in praising God and we want our children to be a part of our music ministry. We have two children’s choirs available at UMCL: Cherub Choir for children 3 years thru Kindergarten and Shine Choir for children in 1 – 6 grade. We invite your children to participate in choir and learn songs of praise that will be performed during select worship services. It is a rewarding program for children and parents.

Vacation Bible School

VBS is a fun summer program in July that allows children to learn about Jesus’ love for them through songs of praise and fun activities. Children from 3 years thru grade 5 are encouraged to join us in this week long program to learn more about the teachings of Jesus. VBS concludes with a celebration performance during Sunday worship service!
