Children's Ministry

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

Green Mountain United Methodist Church welcomes and loves their children!  We offer a variety of activities for the children to take part in; acolytes, ushers, communion servers, greeters, and liturgists.  We also encourage the children to take part in Sunday School each Sunday.  We offer nursery care for children from 8:45-11:45, so parents may take part in a variety of activities as well. GMUMC also encourages the children to take part in chimes and melody bells.

 

Your child is welcome in our home and we love to see them every Sunday!

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Come as you are

We offer child care in the nursery beginning at 8:45am on Sunday mornings.  The children are then welcome to come to the worship service at 10:30am.  We encourage the children to take part in the service, to whatever they feel comfortable. The children are welcome to sit with their families or we also have a learning corner in the back of the church where familes may sit so their children can color, or play quietly with the activities there. Then all children are welcome to the children's time. After that, the children are welome to attend Sunday School classes for the rest of the service or stay and take part in the service. After church, we offer bell practice with Ms. Janet for children in 2nd grade and up.

Sunday School Teachers

Meet our Sunday School Teachers :

At GMUMC, we take the safety of our children very seriously. Each of the volunteer Sunday School teachers have worked with children for many years but equally as important, we require each of the teachers to take a Safeguarding God's Children class, and we do a state background check. We encourage two adults in each room at all times. 


The first Sunday of the month, we offer Arts and Crafts Sunday with Ms. Aimee. The children love to be able to create new Christian crafts and share their stories with her. The remaining Sundays we focus on the Deep Blue Curriculum.
