DUMC Kids!

Growing together.
 
Welcome to DUMC Kids! We are your partner in bringing Jesus into the life of your family. We want your children, birth – 6th grade, to want to come to church and to think of it as a safe, fun place to learn about and experience God’s love, make new friends, and to just be a kid. We believe that active engagement in faith-centered activities brings all families closer in relationship with our loving God and with each other.

Join Us for Fall Fun!

October 23, 3-5pm @DUMC

Register today for DUMC Kids’ Trunk-or-Treat and Fall Fun Day!  Come in costume and we’ll celebrate fall together with Trunk-or-Treating, games and activities, festive give-a-ways for a few lucky parents, a scarecrow service craft and more!

Kids’ Worship

Sunday School

Kids aged 3yrs (potty trained) to 4th grade.
Volunteer teachers provide unified, dynamic instruction that is Christ-centered (and fun!).

Anchor

September 12 – June 8, 9:00 am, Room 22
 
Our emerging teens (5th & 6th graders) gather each Sunday at 9 am, September through May in Room 22, to dive into a comprehensive survey of the Bible. This two-year adventure covers the Old Testament one year and the New Testament the following year. This solid foundation will help our tweens explore their own faith and the truths that the Bible holds as they continue to grow. 
 
Enrollment is ongoing—it’s never too late to enroll for any of our kids’ worship opportunities!

Safe Sanctuaries

Safe Sanctuaries is DUMC’s program for training and doing background clearances on all staff and volunteers who work with children and youth. We are also mandated by the state of Pennsylvania to do these background checks. We take this program very seriously and aim to have 100% of our staff and volunteers checked and trained.
