AUMC’s children ministry exists to disciple our keiki and to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sunday school and nursery care are available every 10am Sunday worship service.
If you have a child (grades k-5) that you would like to enroll in Sunday School or a young child (age 4 and under) that you would like nursery care for, please pre-register at the welcome table Sunday mornings. Children older than 5th are encouraged to assist the adult Sunday school teachers. On the first Sunday of each month, children return to worship to receive Communion with their families.

Sunday school is very important in the lives of our keiki. We welcome all children to come to a special place to learn and grow in their faith. At AUMC, questions are always encouraged. All teachers and volunteers have undergone abuse training through Ministry Safe and have a completed background check.
Our formal program runs from September to June. During the summer months, a one-room Sunday school for children 5th grade and younger takes place. Summer also allows for us to showcase our Vacation Bible School programming in July.
Sunday school drop off can begin as early as 9:50am. Class begins at 10:00am. Children can either be escorted by their parent/guardian directly to the Sunday school classroom OR meet our DCE at the church bell in front of the sanctuary just before 10am. Children must be picked up after service no later than 11:15am.
Preschool age (3 years and younger) 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.
