Welcome to University Kids—a ministry for kids and their families! We exist to glorify God by partnering with parents and families to develop lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. And, we have lots of fun!
On Sunday mornings, the Atrium on the South side of the campus is alive with busy little bodies and lots of energy—and we love it! If you are new, please come to the Children’s Welcome Desk where staff and volunteers look forward to meeting you and your family and helping you find just the right spot for everyone!
9:30-10:30am, Children’s Building, South Side of Campus
We offer Sunday School classes for toddler, preschool, and grade school children at 9:30am. We use The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum because we believe it helps kids learn about God’s BIG story—His passionate pursuit of His people throughout the Bible—so that we can understand God’s BIG love for us His children. Every Sunday your children will learn that all of the Bible points back to Jesus Christ and that every story is part of God’s BIG story.
11am-12pm, Children’s Building, South Side of Campus
This program is for children 3 years-kinder. In First Worship, children learn the elements of worship in hopes that very soon they will be ready to attend worship services with their families.
Our belief at University United Methodist Church is that children best learn about God and how to worship Him by experiencing worship with their families. For this reason, we offer Sunday school at 9:30am only and encourage families to worship together at the 11am service.
There is childcare available for children under 3 at 11am.
We have a variety of different opportunities for your children to get involved in the music ministry at University. For more information about children's choir and handchimes visit our Traditional Music Ministry Page.
A Note about Safety
