Children

 

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. 
-Matthew 19:14
 
 

It’s never too early to develop a relationship with God. FUMCAH welcomes children into its services and encourages participation in ministries and activities just for them! 

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL

We offer excellent, age-appropriate education and faith formation for children, from birth through 6th grade. All Sunday School classes are held during the 9:30AM church service, following the service “Children’s Moment.”

 

Nursery and Toddler Care

Loving care is provided in the church nursery for the youngest members of our church family. 

Pre-School and Kindergarten

Each week features a different Bible story and a variety of activities that reinforce Bible learning. Children who are 2 years old by September 1 meet in Room 100 on the main level, while children age 3 through kindergarten meet in Room 200 on the second floor.

Grades 1-6

Using a rotation method of faith formation, children meet with grade-level peers under the guidance of an adult Adventure Guide, and rotate to a different workshop each week.  Each workshop teacher helps children explore the Bible story in a different way.  Workshop locations are posted in the stairwell directories and at Festival Central, located on the lower level near the coat racks.

Celebration Station (10:30-11:30 post-service care)

Celebration Station allows parents and caregivers to participate in adult learning communities or fellowship, knowing that their children are enjoying their own activities.

Nursery and toddler care continue in Room 101.
Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4-5) and elementary school meet in Room 41. Activities rotate weekly and include Godly Play, storytelling, music, and special Video Sundays.
