A life-long faith journey starts here
PCUMC's children's ministry provides a fun, safe and nurturing environment where children can experience the love of God. A strong foundation for a lifetime of faith is cultivated through engaging programs on Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights, and special events throughout the year.

September Sunday School Series - Heart of a Hero
A 5-Week Series on Joseph
Everyone loves a good superhero story, and every superhero story has a few things in common. No superhero started out as a superhero — they became heroes because of the way their circumstances shaped them,because of the choices they made, and because of the ways they decided to stand up for others. There aren’t any superheroes in the Bible, but there is someone named Joseph who both experienced injustice and let God use him to fight injustice, just like Jesus did. In this 5-week series, kids will discover that Jesus is our hero, God helps us become heroes, heroes make wise choices, heroes help others,and heroes need help too.
Throughout the year, PCUMC hosts special events for children and families. View the calendar to find upcoming events.
