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.

2020 Kids’ Worship Opportunities

 

Weekly Kids’ Message

Each week, you’ll receive a kid’s message delivered to your inbox. This message will include an introduction from a familiar face, a fun Bible Buddy video and a challenge for the week. Complete the challenge and your child gets that week’s code word. Collect all 4 code words for the month and get entered for fun prize!
 

Anchor

Our emerging teens will gather on Zoom each Sunday at 11 am (during our Live Streamed service) to dive into a comprehensive survey of the Bible. This two-year adventure will cover 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.

 

Additional Opportunities

Stay tuned to learn how to get involved with:
Weekly devotions from, Indescribable: 100 Devotions about God & Science.
Creative Christmas Celebration: 2020

Please note that the programming listed below is what is offered when we run a typical schedule. Unfortunately, this year is anything but typical. However, God is good and is giving us the opportunity to try new and exciting ways to connect with Him and each other to grow in our faith. I encourage you to register to stay up-to-date on our DUMC Kids’ programs and events. If you have questions about volunteering opportunities, support, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We can’t wait to grow together!
