Children at aIEA UMC

WORSHIP

Children remain in Sunday worship for the first fifteen minutes to hear musical presentations and to participate in prayer and a children's story. On the first Sunday of each month, children remain in worship a few minutes longer to receive Communion with their families. Children and youth assist in worship as acolytes.


SUNDAY SCHOOL

Children leave worship to attend age-appropriate groups for Bible-based lessons that include prayer, a devotional message, craft projects, music, and games. Each child is encouraged to bring a Bible to Sunday school. As part of the Sunday school program, children learn songs that they perform in worship on special occasions. 


NOTE TO PARENTS

Our church participates in Safe Sanctuaries, a United Methodist policy that ensures the safety of our children. The entire congregation takes seriously our duty to protect our children from physical and emotional harm. 


OVERHEARD FROM A PARENT:

"We can't stay home on Sunday. Our kids drag us out of bed so they can go church and Sunday school."
