Children’s Ministries

13626494_10154439131818755_5263520669835293_nNursery – The nursery is provided for Sunday School and Sunday Worship. It is located in the Fellowship Hall that is attached to the sanctuary. Children are always welcome in our services, and the nursery is as desired by parents.

Kid Spring – The focus of Kid Spring is to teach God’s word at a level that children can understand and apply to their lives. Children pre-k through 5th grade are welcome to attend. Kid Spring meets Wednesday evenings from 4:30 to 6:00 in the fellowship hall. Children will have the opportunity to put biblical concepts into action through music, crafts, games and teaching. 

Mother’s Day Out – This is a program created for preschoolers ages 2-5. A secure, constant, and caring atmosphere allows our program to be more than a baby-sitting service. M.D.O.’s goal is to guide children in experiences that build good self-image, foster creativity, teach appreciation for the world, and develop awareness of all persons as God’s children. M.D.O. operates from 8:30-2:30 every Tuesday and Thursday during the school year. The children participate in physical activities, learning activities, crafts and music.

Momma Tribe – Parents and young children of preschool age meet every other Monday at 9:30 AM on the playground for fun and fellowship. In case of inclement weather, the fun moves inside to the Fellowship Hall and the nursery, where parents and kids spend time loving and sharing with one another. Everyone is welcome!

Vacation Bible School – Each summer our children and many children from the community come to VBS. A new theme each year engages the children (and the adults!) in learning about God in a whole new way. Children are shown the love of Jesus Christ and taught Bible stories through skits, music and movement, crafts, Bible study, and fun that make it a memorable experience for all who participate. Memory verses every day teach the children valuable Scriptures, and multiple take-home materials reinforce their experiences during the week. Dinner is provided every evening, and each participant decorates and receives a T-shirt that represents the VBS theme. The children and their families are invited to a special VBS celebration at the Sunday worship service, where the participants get to demonstrate what they learned throughout the week through songs and movement. Everyone is welcome!

Easter Festival – Every year on Palm Sunday, SCUMC holds an Easter festival for our children birth through 5th grade.  There are games, snacks, prizes, and an Easter egg hunt – fun for the whole family!

Fall Festival and Trunk ‘N Treat – Each October 31, SCUMC holds a Fall Festival and Trunk ‘N Treat event for all the children of the community.  See the Community Outreach page for more information.

Cub Scouts – Cub Scouts Pack 3239 meets in the Family Life Center every Monday 6:30 – 7:30 PM through the school year, as well as various service projects, campouts, fundraisers, and fun events on weekends throughout the entire year. Boys grades 1 through 5 (ages 6-10) are welcome to join Cub Scouts, with an application through Boy Scouts of America and a membership fee of $24 per year per Scout.  Parents and siblings are always welcome to participate and help in any activity or event, as Cub Scouts is a family-oriented group. The Scouting program is always in need of leaders, and anyone wishing to help is welcome.  Leaders undergo a background check through the Boy Scouts of America, and two-deep leadership is always maintained, with no exceptions.
