Nursery and child care for children up to six years old are available beginning at 8:15 am through 12:15 pm every Sunday. We have a special room for infants and new toddlers, separate from the older children. Our experienced child care staff will text you or come get you, should your child be overly upset or show signs of becoming ill.
Children’s Sunday School
Our children enjoy age-appropriate Sunday School lessons, beginning at age 3 through 5th grade. Our older elementary children are always learning more about how to use their Bible, which is presented to all our participants when they enter third grade. Sunday School meets from 10:20 am to 11:00 am. Most of our children also stay for Children’s Church.
Our church vans pick up as many as 30 children each week who participate in our Children’s Church program. They begin with breakfast at 10:00 a.m., then start Sunday School at 10:20 am. At 11:00 a.m. they are brought into the sanctuary for the beginning of the second worship service. The children are always pleased to greet people, shaking hands with lots of people before being seated for the prelude, call to worship, the first hymn, and the opening prayer. We teach the children how to follow along with the hymns and encourage them to participate in the unison prayer. They then spend a few moments with our pastor, who introduces them to the Bible story and theme of the service. The children then go up to the children’s wing to enjoy a time of singing, dancing and stories.
Crown Heights United Methodist Church invites all children to participate each summer in a time of learning, crafts, games, and snacks. The 5:45 – 8:00 p.m. evening sessions begin with a dinner followed by activities that focus on a central biblical theme. This year’s curriculum is called, “Maker Fun Factory!” We would love to have your child join the fun, June 19-22, 2017.
We are especially pleased to sponsor our Girl Scout troop #584, which is now over a year old. We have girls from a variety of schools and backgrounds. If you’d like to help or your daughter would like to participate, contact Jamie Gross.
