Welcome to Davis United Methodist Church Children’s Ministry Programs!

Childcare during 10 am worship

We offer loving & professional childcare for infants through preschoolers throughout worship on Sundays at 10:00am. Children are always welcome in the Sanctuary and families may wish to utilize childcare whenever helpful. Childcare is located just outside the Sanctuary in the hallway off to the right. Please sign-in your child(ren) for childcare in the Nursery. 

Children are always welcome in worship!

Worship begins in the sanctuary at 10:00 am.

Davis United Methodist Church is a church that is welcoming and affirming to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

We hope you feel that you can relax and be at peace to enjoy your time together in worship. Because we believe God made children to be full of energy and excitement, here are a few suggestions we have for engaging children in our services:

  • We encourage families to sit on the aisles or near the front of the sanctuary, so children can see without grown-ups blocking their view.
  • Explain what is happening during worship and what is coming next. Let your child(ren) cross things off in the bulletin as they happen.
  • When it’s time to stand, allow your child to kneel or move about the space or dance to the music.
  • Though our song words are projected on screens in the sanctuary, please pull out the hymnal and help them follow along with hymns and songs.
  • There are activity bags in the Santuary Lobby with crayons, drawing paper and fidget toys. We also offer picture books next to the activity bags. 

What to Expect on Sunday Morning

On Sunday mornings, we offer Children’s Choir / Drama and Sunday School. Both meet in the Education Wing. All staff and volunteers have been background checked and trained through Safe Gatherings.

During worship, children are welcomed to the front to help pass the peace and following this time, children in grades TK through 7th grade are invited to attend Sunday School and escorted by their teacher and an assistant to the classroom.  

At the close of worship, parents may come to the Sunday School classroom to gather children.

Children’s Choir / Drama – No audition necessary and participation is free! Stay tuned for our next production! Rehearsals will start in August.

Sunday School

Sunday School meets in the Education Wing. Our curriculum is a compassionate, faith filled sharing of Bible stories. We help our kids develop a curiosity to learn more about God’s love through Jesus Christ and grow to become disciples of Jesus. 

Class is structured similarly each week.

After class, families are encouraged to utilize the playground and share fellowship time (snacks) with others.
