Welcome to GUM kids!

GUM kids is a dedicated ministry of GUMchurch that focuses on providing a safe, loving place for kids to explore their faith as well as nurture their relationship with both God and God’s  people. From birth through 6th grade, GUM kids and their family find support from the GUM community as they journey  toward a better understanding of God, Jesus, and our calling in God’s world.

Sunday Morning Programs

Where do my kids age 3 through 6th grade go during the worship service?

Kids will start the hour in worship. During the worship service, kids will be invited to be a part of Children’s Time (kids get to come forward as a group and hang out with Pastor Jennie for a few minutes of chatting and a brief lesson.)

Kids Sunday School classes end about 15 minutes after the regular worship services end.  Parents can collect their kids from their assigned classrooms at  10:15 from the first service and 11:45 following the second service. *An usher or greeter can help you find these classrooms.

Where do my babies and kids up to 36 months go during worship?

Kids from birth through age 2 will play and be loved on in the Nursery (just down the hall from the Sanctuary).

Will an offering be received during Children's Sunday School?

Yes!  More info on where this year’s offering will go is coming soon!

 

56 – Sunday Evenings for 5th & 6th Graders

This fun group for 5th and 6th graders meets for an hour on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month at 6:30pm. This is a great place for kids to connect with others their age! Kids can expect games, small group discussions, food, and of course, a few surprises along the way!

 

All about the Nursery  & Children’s Ministries

Nursery & Childcare Ministries

The purpose of the Nursery Ministry is to provide safe childcare for families and support parents in raising children who know Jesus so that both parents and children can actively live the example of Jesus.

Jesus tells us, “Let  the little children come to me, and do not stop them;  for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” So we strive to help all of the children in nursery care encounter God in ways that are fun and age-appropriate.

The kids in nursery experience loving care from trained childcare providers while interacting with other kids, learning songs, hearing stories and building relationships within the GUM community.

Nursery and childcare services are available  during all worship services as well as church classes, meetings, and other events.

Children's Ministry

The mission of GUMchurch’s Children’s Ministry is to create an exciting Christian community where children feel welcome and accepted, are inspired to build a personal relationship with God, and put their faith in action.
