Children’s Ministries

Due to the ongoing situation of Covid-19 and the uncertainty of the next few months for our church family and worship services, we are NOT currently having in-person children’s classes. There is no date set yet as to when those will re-start.
 
You are welcome to join our church family on Sunday mornings, at 11 a.m., inside our building. We meet in the sanctuary and the lobby area, observing strict Covid-19 guidelines-masks are required, social distancing in place, frequent sanitizing in effect.
Children are very welcome, at our worship services, no matter how much noise and movement they bring! We have activity bags available for our young worshippers and nursery is available for children aged 3 and under.
 
Each week we offer an at-home children’s lesson to be used by the whole family. These are mailed hard-copy to those families currently attending the church and also posted digitally to our private Facebook page. Please contact Helga mortensen at hmortensenwumc@gmail.com if you like to be added to the list.
 
with some previously recorded lessons, plus some extras, like read-aloud books.
 
We maintain a private Facebook page with posts of activities, recommendations and resources. Go here to request to join:
