Children’s Ministry

Central United Methodist Church loves children! We welcome children of all ages into a warm, Christian environment. Our goal at Central UMC is to nurture, love, and introduce the children to the Christian faith. We offer religious classes and programming for children of all ages. Feel free to contact April Travis with any questions.

The Children of Central

There is a place for every child at Central United Methodist Church. We offer loving childcare during Sunday School and the 11am service for children infant – three years of age. Each time that we are together we take care of the children both physically and spiritually. Sunday School meets at 9:45am on the playground behind the church.

During our 11:00 am service children can check in for Wiggle Worship with April Travis or a volunteer where they will experience their own Worship service in a space designed for them. Following the 11:00 worship service, the parents can pick their children up from the Central Zoo classroom in the Education Wing.

We have a Safe Sanctuaries policy in place to protect our children. If you would like more information the policies can be downloaded here. Forms to register for volunteer opportunities and background checks are also here.

Ages: Birth to three-year olds

The nursery is provided for our youngest children from birth to age 3. It is located in the “Central Tower” room near the church office. The nursery is staffed with warm and friendly childcare providers who will lovingly look after your child. We have a digital check-in system powered through Realm in order to have extra security measures in place. The nursery workers will be able to reach you quickly in case of an emergency or if your child is having a difficult morning. Please feel free to contact April Travis with any questions or concerns.

In order to keep our children safe, everyone who enters the nursery is required to wear a face covering. We ask that children ages two and up to wear a face covering as well to protect both them and the others from the spread of Covid-19.

Wiggle Worship

Wiggle Worship is designed for children ages preschool through 3rd grade that may not want or be able to sit through the entire 11:00 am worship service. Check in at the Central Zoo classroom in the education wing near the nursery. There we will have our own children led Worship service on their level. We will be using material based on Orange curriculum. After the 11:00 am Worship service is over, parents may pick their children up in the Central Zoo classroom. Please contact April Travis with any questions or concerns.

In order to keep our children safe we ask all volunteers and children to wear a face covering. This will help protect both the children and volunteers safe from the spread of Covid-19.

Vacation Bible School

Join us each summer for Vacation Bible School. We accept potty-trained three year olds through rising 6th graders. Volunteer opportunities are available. Contact April Travis for more information.
