Children’s Ministry

Children are an important part of PUMC. We have several ministries to nurture our youngest members. We’d love to have your family get involved with any of these groups.

Sunday School for Children

The Sunday School format is currently a “large group, small group” format.  All children 5K to 5th grade meet in the Clubhouse located in the last classroom upstairs in the new building.  During the first 20 minutes of the “large group” the children will participate in social time, games, prayer, song, Bible skills, memory verses, Bible stories, and a video.  The last 20 minutes will be spent in their classrooms across the hall from the clubhouse in their “small group” participating in an activity that reinforces the Bible lesson and video from that day.  Children can be picked up from one of these two classrooms at 10:45am.

Club 22:6

Club 22:6 meets on Sunday nights.  Clubhouse hours are 4:30-5:30pm.  All children K5 – 5th grade are welcome to become Charter members of the Club.  Parents: No eating in the clubhouse (ie. no meal will be provided)

Based on Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go,  And when he is old he will not depart from it.”
