Loving God - Loving People!

Children's Ministries

 
At Saint Paul UMC, we believe children are special! We also believe that helping children develop a personal relationship with Christ is the most important thing we can do for them. We offer several opportunities each week for children to come to church and learn about God's love. 
 
We are so happy that summer is here!
Children are out of school and looking for something to do?

Vacation Bible School 2013
I was sitting talking with a group of friends about our childhood days of attending vacation bible school. Many remember riding in the church van and attending every bible school of the churches that would pick them up. We talked about the bible stories learned, the fun games played, and the pure joy of attending bible school. Do child today feel the same way about bible school as we did back then? I would have to say, YES! I love seeing the smiles on children’s face and hearing them ask their parent, “Do we get to come back tomorrow?” This tells me that we are doing the work that God has asked us to do. At St Paul we offer a free meal to children beginning at 5:00. There is no charge to attend VBS, come and join us at Everywhere Fun Fair!

 Jonathan's Child Sunday School
  This class is designed for children with special needs.  We have a large carpeted area where the children will have their lesson led by a trained volunteer.  There is a handicapped accessible restroom located in the classroom.  Parents who wish to enjoy an adult Sunday School class while being able to keep an eye on their child will appreciate the adjoining classroom with a one-way window into the children's area.
