Children's Ministries


Our Children's Ministry is designed with a balance of classroom learning,

hands-on mission work, plus socialization and fun!


Junior Church

Sundays, Year Round - 9:00 am

 

 

This program is designed for Kindergarten through 5th grade.  The children attend the 9:00 am Traditional Worship Service with their parent(s), grandparent(s) or guardian(s).  Early in the service, the children are invited to come forward for the Children's Message.  We call it "Sermon on the Steps".  The pastor will share the sermon topic for the day at a level appropriate for the kids.  Then the children go upstairs for Junior Church.  The kids have a brief lesson, followed by a craft project or a game.

 

Sunday School

Sundays, September through May - 10:00 am

 

We offer Sunday School for ALL ages (preschool through adult) from 10:00 - 10:50 am.  Our preschool through 5th grade classes utilize a United Methodist curriculum and involve a more traditional bible lesson with activities, while our Middle School and High School classes are more discusssion based with a Bible focus.  Our Adult class utilizes several 5-7 week DVD/ discussion response book studies based upon a wide variety of topics.  Our Sunday School program will have two opportunities to expand beyond our walls this year.  We will participate in the Milford/ Huron Valley CROP Walk and will tour the Heifer Project International Global Village in the Howell Nature Center.

 

Kids-On-A-Mission (KOM)

Sundays, September through May during Sunday School

 

KOM is a part of our Children and Youth Sunday School programs.  Each month is a different HANDS ON mission project.  Our leaders rotate through the classes each month, sharing information on a different local or international mission and then they do a hands on project that will benefit that program.  Examples of some of the mission projects we support are Operation Christmas Child, Street Outreach, animal shelters, College Ministry, NIC Units, Heifer Project International, and PET (Personal Energy Transportation vehicles).  KOM also goes beyond the walls of the church to do a park clean up for Earth Day.


Children's Worship

Sundays Year Round - 11:00 am

 

 

This program is designed for Kindergarten through 5th grade.  The children attend the 11:00 am Contemporary Worship Service with their parent(s), grandparent(s) or guardian(s).  Early in the service, the children are invited to come forward for the Children's Message.  We call it "Sermon on the Steps".  The pastor will share the sermon topic for the day at a level appropriate for the kids.  Then the children go upstairs for Junior Church.  The kids have a brief lesson, followed by a craft project or a game.

 

Kids' Choir & Kids' Klub

Wednesdays from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, September - May


Kids' Klub is a Wednesday evening program for elementary aged kids.  This program is designed for the kids to just HAVE FUN without the structure of "have-to-dos" that they have had all day long.  The evening begins with choir practice from 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm.  Then, for the first half hour of Kids' Klub, children have open gym in our Activity Hall.  And, during the second half hour, they may choose a craft project or other creative outlet that we have available that week.  Kids' Klub moves out of the building three times during the year:  We have a fall and a late winter skate night as well as our end of year picnic at Hess Hathaway Park in Waterford.


Vacation Bible School

June 24th - June 28th, 2019


We are off on “The Incredible Race”, where we will be learning about God’s love for all the nations.  We will race from continent to continent uncovering clues and attempting challenges.  We will discover that no matter where we live, what shade of skin we have or what language we speak, we are all part of the same race – the human race – and all part of the same family of Adam and Eve.


Vacation Bible School runs from Monday, June 24th – Friday, June 28th, 9:00 am – 12:15 pm.  On Sunday, June 30th, we will perform our songs from the week, during a combined 10:00 am worship service and then begin the fun that is our Summer Celebration!
