The Children Ministry helps children (Pre-K to 5th Grade) and their families to grow together on their journey to follow, love and serve Jesus Christ. The New Creation Children Ministry gives children memorable Bible lessons, fellowship opportunities and chances to serve and love others in their communities.
Fun Family Activities
Each month, our Children Ministry hosts several Friday evenings and weekend events that provide fun activities for children and parents alike. Movie nights and game nights give families a chance to kick back after a long week and spend time with each other and other families. Parents’ Night Out gives parents a chance to spend time together while their children enjoy an evening of games and exciting activities. Check out the Children Ministry Calendar down below to see our activities for children and families!
There is always something new to learn in our Children’s Sunday School! Each month, our children focus on a single story found in the Bible and rotate through different classes that focus on specific learning styles, including cooking, storytelling, arts & crafts, games, science and spiritual practices. At the beginning of each month, our children engage in a mission project that they can take home to get their families involved!
Vacation Bible Camp
New Creation UMC Invites Children to Vacation Bible Camp: ROAR!
At ROAR, kids discover that God is good even when life gets wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 11:45 am (7:45 pm on Sunday night).
Kids at ROAR! VBC will join a missions effort to provide nutrition packets and health checkups for moms and babies in need in Zambia, Africa.
ROAR! is for kids from Pre-Kindergarten to rising 5th Grade students. Pre-kindergarten kids must be 4 years old by September 1, 2019 (or born before September 1, 2015).
ROAR! will begin with an evening program on Sunday, June 23 from 5 pm to 8 pm (including dinner for the whole family, 5–6 pm). VBS will continue Monday, June 24–Thursday, June 27 from 9 am–12 pm. Parents should arrive to pick up their children 15 minutes before the end of each day's program.
Pre-registration will close on Sunday, June 9, 2019, but you can still register at the event!
Our Staff and Volunteers
Our Children Ministry staff takes safety and accountability very seriously. Our Safe Sanctuary guidelines require our staff and volunteers to complete a background and criminal record check and abuse and boundary awareness training. We use the Safe Gatherings program to approve our staff and regular volunteers.
