Children

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 each other.

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.
