Welcome to CUMC Children’s Ministry!  If you are seeking information about the Countryside United Methodist Preschool, please click here.

The purpose of the CUMC children’s ministry is to create a loving and accepting community that fosters a lifelong Christian faith foundation for our children.  We invite you to join us for any of our many ongoing activities!

Child Care

Child care is available for our youngest disciples, children ages two weeks through five years old, and is provided during all worship services and most evening activities.  Care is provided by our trained and certified staff, who want to share God’s love to the highest degree as they care for your children in a safe, warm, welcoming environment.  Parent pagers are available to check out so that you can stay in contact with the staff in case of emergencies.

Sunday Morning Small Groups

We offer Sunday Morning Small Groups for children ages 3 – 6th grade, with classes that provide a curriculum engaging the Bible in fun and enlightening ways.  We strive to provide self-directed activities to develop children’s independent learning skills and instill a life-long faith relationship.  We have a special class for our Tweens (5th-6th grade) that engages them in increasingly hands-on mission projects as they continue to learn and grow.  For more information or to register you child for Sunday School, please click here.

Wednesdays for Kids

Our Wednesday evening program for kids runs from September to May and provides a fun environment  with different opportunities for kids to learn more, worship God, and make new friends.  For more information about Wednesdays for Kids,  visit here.
