Children Ministries

At the concord United Methodist Church, we believe children are central to our ministry to the world and to one another, and make sure that, from birth to adulthood, they are surrounded by a community of love and support.

 

 

Nursery Care

All Nursery Staff have passed background checks, and are CPR and 1st Aid Certified.

The Nursery will be open for the 10:30 a.m. Service
(Staffed 10:15 – 11:45 a.m.)

Our Nursery is fully staffed by Marilyn Forrey, Kathy Evans-Butler and Suzie Falk as the alternate. Please remember that the Nursery is only for those who are “non-potty-trained”. ALL other toddlers are welcome and encouraged to attend Sunday School.

 

Children’s Sunday School

Children’s Sunday School meets at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday morning. Preschool Sunday School meets in Room 8 for ages 3 to 5. Elementary Sunday School, for Kindergarteners through 5th grade, meets in Rooms 6 and 7.

 

Mid Week Program

Mid-Week is a FREE after school program that is provided by the church on Wednesdays, 2 - 6 p.m.. Elementary through High School only. Snacks are provided. There is homework time (no tutoring) as well as various activities and games. We will have cooking, arts & crafts, sports, etc. More Information here.

If you are free on Wednesday afternoons, we need volunteers!

 

Parental support

If your family is in need or crisis, the Concord UMC staff is here to help. If we aren’t equipped to help you, we will point you to the people who can. We can recommend numerous reliable places for pastoral help, counseling, recovery centers and more. Never hesitate or feel ashamed about asking for help. A few helpful parenting websites about issues affecting teenagers are listed below.
