At Aiea United Methodist we have a worship experience for all generations and consider ourselves a family church.
Children (PreK-5th) remain in Sunday worship for the first fifteen minutes to hear musical presentations and to participate in prayer and a children's message and then are dismissed with their teachers to Sunday School for exciting stories, experiments & crafts. On the first Sunday of each month, children return to worship to receive Communion with their families. Children and Youth assist in worship as acolytes.
Children younger than preschool age are invited to join their parents in the worship service or visit our nursery. The nursery is located through the gate, up the stairs, and in the first door on the left, across from the women's bathroom.
Children leave worship to attend age-appropriate groups for Bible based lessons that include prayer, a devotional message, craft projects, music, and games. Beginning November 12, we will be rehearsing for our children's Christmas Program titled "Finding Christmas." After the worship service children can be picked up in our Sunday School classrooms which are the colorful doors up above the courtyard.
A NOTE TO PARENTS
Our church participates in Safe Sanctuaries, a United Methodist policy that ensures the safety of our children. The entire congregation takes our duty to protect our children from physical and emotional harm seriously.
