Making Disciples - Transforming the World

Sunday Mornings for Children

 
 Jesus said, "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
 
MUMC is dedicated to delivering a meaningful Christian experience to ALL of our guests and members especially the smallest among us.
 
Sunday School
Caring volunteers provide tailored lessons to children ages 2 through 5th grade beginning at 9am on the lower level classrooms at MUMC. Children enjoy fun lessons that teach them about Christ’s love for them and begin to build the foundation for their Christian lives. In addition to the benefits provided for the children, this time allows all adults to attend the 9am 'Awakening' Contemporary worship or Adult Sunday School offerings. 
 
Nursery
Nursery care is provided on the lower level of MUMC for children 0-2 yrs during the 10:30 'Celebration' Blended Worship service. Loving volunteers staff a fun playroom so parents can focus on the worship service while feeling secure about their children having fun in a safe environment.  A nursery paging system is available to we can contact you during the service if your child needs you.

Children's Church
Preschool and School age children participate with the congregation during the first part of our 10:30am worship service. Blessing bags filled with coloring activities are located at the back of the sanctuary for your child’s enjoyment during this time. Our youngest members attend the opening “Call to Worship” and “Greeting” portions of the worship service and are then called to the front of the sanctuary where they get to enjoy a special sermon; delivered on their level. Following this “Children’s Message”, the children are then escorted to Children’s Church (1st - 5th grade) and Jr Children's Church (preschool and Kindergarten) held in meeting rooms at the lower level of MUMC for lessons, crafts, games and other age appropriate activities. This special time together is focused on teaching Christian principles and fundamentals for their young lives. At the conclusion of the Worship Service, parents pick up their children downstairs at their classroom to hear about all the fun they had and lessons they learned.
 
Crying Room
For parents who prefer to have their children with them during the worship service, MUMC offers a crying room at the back, left-hand side of the sanctuary. The room is fully equipped with fun toys, books and puzzles to entertain your children. In addition, there are bathroom facilities and a changing table for parents’ convenience. 
 
We are a 'Safe Sanctuaries' church, which means, among other things, that all volunteers who work with children participate in training and undergo a criminal background check. Children also are supervised by at least two adults at all times.
