Children's Ministry

Children's Ministry

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
~ Proverbs 22:6 NIV

The mission of the Children's Ministry Committee (CMC) is to:

  • Involve the children of the community in their church
  • Instill in the children a desire to come, participate, and have fun
  • Provide the children a place where they feel they belong and are loved
  • Encourage the growth of each child’s Christian faith so it becomes a part of them and will remain with them throughout their lives

Children's Ministry Activities:

Children's Sunday School
We provide Sunday school for 4 year olds to 12 year olds (6th graders).  Our Sunday school year runs the same as a school year (from September to June).  We use the Rotation Workshop Method for teaching, with the exception of the 4 and 5 year olds.  We feel a more stable classroom environment with the same teacher and helper each week better suits their age group.

Waffle & Ice Cream Breakfast
It is for the entire congregation!  We kick off our Sunday school year by holding registration this morning.

Fall Festival
Children and adults come to celebrate Autumn with various activities such as a hayride, crafts & games.

Children’s Sabbath and Bible Sunday
Children and youth lead the service this Sunday.  We present our 3rd graders with Bibles.

Christmas Pageant & "Happy Birthday, Jesus" Party
We start to get ready for the holiday with the children showing us the reason for the season.  Afterwards, we celebrate Jesus birthday and successful pageant with a dish to pass and cupcakes.

LUMC Game Night
People, ages 2 to 82, come and enjoy a night of pizza and games together in the Fellowship Hall.

Mother’s Day Gifts
We give small gifts to the women of our congregation.

Father’s Day Gifts
We give small gifts to the men of our congregation.

Teacher Appreciation Sunday & Sunday School Picnic
In June, we honor our teachers and volunteers during the worship service.  This is the day we bring a close to our Sunday school year.

Vacation Bible School
We partner with our neighbors at All Saints to offer kids a week in the summer fun ways to learn bible stories.

K.A.N. (Kids in Action Now)

K.A.N. is for 3rd – 5th graders.  The goal of K.A.N. is to involve kids in the helping ministries of our church, first by learning about specific programs and then by participating in activities to support these programs.

If you would like to help us in our mission by working with the children and youth of LUMC, please stop by the church office and pick up an Application Form.
