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 9:00 worship service. Children and youth join their families in the sanctuary through the Children’s Moment, which is at approximately 9:15. Afterward parents escort their children to the age appropriate classrooms for Sunday School.

The curriculum on Sundays varies by age groups but 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 by 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.  The Sunday School Superintendent is available in the office to provide support to teachers and students as needed. Parents or authorized adults pick children up at their classroom at the end of the 9:00 service (approximately 10:15).
