Children are very important to us at FUMCCB. Parents and volunteers partner to teach our kids about God’s love and what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We do this by making Bible stories come alive through storytelling, crafts, and various other activities.
On most Sunday mornings, elementary school kids start with their family in worship at 11:00 a.m.. (A nursery is provided for infants and toddlers.) During this time, we encourage parents to teach their children about the basic rhythms of worship, helping them read the prayers, sing the songs, and participate in the sacraments. About fifteen or twenty minutes into the service, children are invited to be dismissed for an age appropriate Bible lesson and activity. Although children are always welcome to remain with their families in worship, those who choose to participate in the children’s lesson are picked-up by parents after the service in our Sunday school classrooms (downstairs).
On the second Sunday of the month when we offer contemporary worship, children's church is offered during this 9:30 a.m. service and "Wiggle Bags" are given to kids who remain in worship with their parents at the 11:00 a.m. service.
Note to Parents: The safety of your children is very important to us. Every volunteer in the children's ministry receives training in our denominational Child and Youth Protection Policy and must sign a covenant agreement to strictly abide by this policy. Your child will always be supervised by adults that have undergone national background checks. You are welcome to observe class and are encouraged to ask questions.
Warren W. Willis United Methodist Camp: The UMC in Florida is blessed with awesome summer camp, and we encourage parents to consider allowing their children and youth to be a camper. It's a life changing experience! For more information: http://www.warrenwilliscamp.org/.
