Children's Ministry

Ministry Dedicated to children Birth - 5th Grade


At SFUMC our heartbeat is children and families, and our passion is doing life together. We are dedicated to partnering with families to help children in becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We strive to provide a welcoming, encouraging, and fun place for children and families to be strengthened in their faith. Our aim is to equip the Next Generation for great things and empower them to lead today.

Spring 19' Semester MIDWEEK SERVICES Begin back on Wednesday January 16


Sunday school : Children's Sunday School Classes are in the the education building.

Nursery: Ages 0-4 years : Our nursery is available during all worship services and bible studies.

Beginners: PreK - 1st Grade : Using Bible stories and lessons, our focus is to help our children

link life experiences and to practice what they are learning.

Elementary: 2nd – 5th Grade : Emphasis is placed on classroom involvement by reading Bible

stories and applying the biblical principles learned that week.

Kids Church : Children grades PK - 5 are released from our 10:55AM adult worship service to participate in Kids Church. Kids Church is located in the Education Building.

Family Sunday's : The first Sunday of each month there is no children’s church, instead we invite our children to participate in our adult worship services by worshipping as a family, with their family. At each of our main sanctuary entrances there are Family Sunday activity bags, please pick one up before service and return it after service. Inside each Family Sunday Activity bag children will find a sermon activity sheet, crayons, take-home discipleship kit, and of course my favorite….. Treats. It is my prayer that you and your families will enjoy these bags as a wonderful opportunity to help our children engage in worship as we strive to help families lead in discipleship at church, and at home.

Here's what to expect when visiting Somerville FUMC for the first time:
