Sunday School for Children

MUMC recognizes the importance of Sunday School in the faith formation of children and adults. We offer Sunday School for children ages 2 through high school during the 9:00am worship service. Children and youth join their families in the sanctuary through the Children's Moment, which is at approximately 9:15. Afterward the teachers escort the children to the age appropriate classrooms for Sunday School.

The curriculum on Sundays varies by age groups by each class follows a curriculum approved by the United Methodist Church and includes Bible stories, music, crafts etc. Each class is led by at least two adults who have passed the background screening required the the United Methodist Church.

Registration forms are completed for each child attending and copies are kept in the classroom and in the Sunday School office. Children will be brought back to the sanctuary towards the end of the service.

Montgomery Methodist Children's Center is located in Damascus near the border of Montgomery and Frederick counties and serves preschoolers from the Damascus, Mt.Airy, New Market, Ijamsville, Urbana, Clarksburg and surrounding areas.

Montgomery Methodist provides a positive educational environment which encourages children to learn and grow emotionally, intellectually and socially at their own pace. Through classroom interactions, our students learn to take turns, share, make new friends and respect the rights of others. We also strive to instill in our students a love of learning that will follow them throughout their lives. Through participation in a variety of learning experiences in a Christian atmosphere and through the use of Bible stories and Christian songs, children are encouraged to develop Christian attitudes and behaviors.
