CHILDREN AND FAMILY MINISTRIES
Children are such an important part of the life of our church! We have a variety of opportunities for children and families to come together in worship, education and faith formation, mission, and fellowship. Our goal is to help our very youngest members grow in faith and discipleship for the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
OUR UPCOMING EVENTS
Saturday, March 24th
on the Front Lawn of the Church
Activities Begin at 10:30 am
Egg Hunt Begins at 11:00 am
Arts and Crafts, Games, and The Easter Story will begin at 10:30 am with the Egg Hunt beginning at 11:00 am. Come enjoy the activities, hunt eggs, then stay to enjoy lunch with family and friends on the front lawn. Pack yourself a lunch or purchase lunch from Dippin' Dogs Food Truck. Bring your own Easter egg basket to collect eggs!
Family discipleship is when parents help their children become disciples of Jesus Christ in their home…It happens by teaching, loving, and sharing our faith with our children. When we bring the gospel back into the home, it will spread through our neighborhoods and into the communities where we live. If every family in every church got serious about making disciples in the home, it would change our world. Let the journey begin!

We carefully and prayerfully hire staff to provide a warm and caring environment where your children will experience the love of Christ through human hands. A series of references and background checks are performed on every person we hire.
Your child will have an opportunity to play with other children their own age, learn about God through an age-appropriate craft or activity, munch on a yummy snack of cheerios and water, and if the weather is nice, play outside on our playground!
Sundays during 11:00 a.m. Worship (except the 1st Sunday of each month)
Worship is the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for God. This can be a very natural concept for children, but often children need help preparing to participate in the prayers, creeds, and hymns of corporate worship. Following the Children’s Time in “Big Church," 4 and 5 year old children are invited to join Adult Volunteers in LM 306 where they will engage with scripture and stories (to serve as a sermon), a musical response (to serve as a final hymn), creeds and prayers, and a final prayer (to serve as a benediction).
Rehearsal: Wednesdays 5:00 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.
- Jubliation Choir (3rd-5th grade) - Room 110
- Good News Choir (1st-2nd grade) - Parlor
- Cherub Choir (4k-5k) - Room 112
Our choirs are open to everyone who likes to sing! We have choirs for all ages.
Sundays 9:45 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. in LM 306
In the Children’s Sunday School, we use a curriculum that aligns with the Revised Common Lectionary text in an effort to remain consistent with the season of the Church as well as the TRUMC worship schedule. This provides children with the reinforcement of the lessons, readings, and sermons on any given day so that the children can grow in their understanding of the scriptures.
Wednesdays 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in the Gym
Discipleship Junior is an opportunity for children (4K - 5th grade) to dig deeper into bible study. Through crafts, stories, and games, children study scriptures and learn how to become better disciples of Christ.
