children

At AUMC Kids, children are celebrated! We learn, serve, and have FUN together. We believe in the importance of community and intentional relationship with others. We provide opportunities for parents and children to grow their faith together. We sing, play music, laugh, and love one another.

All our volunteers are trained and screened in accordance with Aldersgate UMC’s Safe Sanctuaries policy.

 

The best way to stay in touch with what’s happening is to subscribe to our weekly newsletter for announcements, events, and our favorite parenting and ministry resources.

Sunday Morning Small Group

We view Sunday school as a time to learn the bible basics: the bible stories, how to use and navigate the bible, and that the bible is more than just an old book – it is the story of God’s love for us and a helpful tool to learn and grow in God and through our relationships with family and friends. We offer age-appropriate Sunday School classes for Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade on Sunday mornings from 10:00 – 10:50.

  

 

Our elementary age children’s area is located behind our Fellowship Hall, in classrooms 112 and 113. A sign-in sheet will be provided so you can sign your child in and out of class.
 

Preschool class for ages 3 & 4 is located in the area behind the Fellowship Hall in classroom 108.

Contact our Director of Children's Ministry Brittney Saffell at bsaffell@aldersgatehsv.com with additional questions.
