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.

Nursery & Childcare
Our nursery offers a welcoming environment for children ages infant to 4 years. Safe Sanctuary-trained staff provide free, supervised childcare during both Sunday morning services and Wednesday Night Live.
Sunday School classes for Pre-K through 5th Grade are offered during our 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship service. With Grow curriculum children will experience adventure, exciting stories, science, arts and crafts and active games!
Wednesday Night Live
Wednesday Night Live allows the whole family to connect in age-appropriate small groups from September to April. Family-style dinner is provided at 6:00 p.m., followed by small group studies for adults, youth and children.
Throughout the year, PCUMC hosts special events for children and families. View the calendar to find upcoming events.
May Sunday School Series - TRUE STORY
In this 4-week series, we’ll follow the true story of the early church. Kids will imagine they are explorers and adventurers as they hear the stories of Saul’s conversion, Peter and Cornelius, Peter’s escape from prison, and Paul and Barnabas’ missionary travels. By the end of this series, kids will learn and remember that Jesus changes lives, Jesus loves everyone, Jesus gives us freedom, and Jesus helps us share His story.
