Children's Ministry
Building our Children's faith closer to God
Reaching our Children


In our children’s ministry, we are partnering with parents and guardians to raise the next generation of believers and servants! To do this in an engaging way, we use a wide variety of missions, music, arts and crafts, discipleship, and just plain fun. Our children are learning the fundamentals of our faith while developing a strong spiritual foundation.

Center United Methodist offers a wide variety of programming for our children. For more information about each of our programs, please click through the tabs below for a brief description or how you can get involved.


My church brings me together with God. It helps me know why God made this earth and why we need to be kind. I think that we should show people love because that’s what God wants us to do. Our church is special because it is Gods house and we need to respect His house. - Lilly L.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

We offer Sunday School each Sunday morning from 10-10:45 a.m. for children beginning in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our children participate in an innocative program called Rotation Sunday School in which each Sunday the children rotate through a variety of stations using different learning styles to internalize Bible stories effectively.

Our nurserys (newborns-4 year olds) specific curriculum geared toward their particular ages, learning about Jesus through Bible stories. Newborns and toddlers meet in the Nursery I classroom, while children ages 3 & 4 meet in the Nursery II class. Both of these Nursery classes are located on the first floor, down the main hallway across from one another. Our K-3rd grade class, as well as 4th & 5th grades meet downstairs.
