ChildrenMinistryBUMC Ministry with Children is committed to helping children and families grow in their knowledge of/and relationship with Jesus Christ in a loving and caring environment.

Our Sunday school classes meet from 9:55 am – 10:55 am, and are divided by age and grade. They provide a meaningful and joyous experience to share God’s love, and teach young boys and girls the stories of our faith. Through these stories, children can come to know God as a friend, and Jesus as their Savior.

Children’s Activities

Children are born with an innate sense of wonder and faith that is real and authentic. Our focus in “Ministry with Children” is not only on religious instruction or teaching, but rather spiritual formation during childhood which includes instruction, but involves much more. As teachers and leaders, our role is to provide a foundation of experiences on which children move toward a maturing faith, and a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ through which we become more like Christ living in our everyday lives in the world.

We offer many opportunities for children to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ:

Club 45 – A Preteen Community Group designed for 4th & 5th graders.  Registration Forms are now available for the 2015 – 2016 year of Club 45.

Advent Festival – Food, fun and crafts are used to teach children about the Advent Season.  The 2015 Advent Festival will be on November 29 at 4:30 – 6:30pm in the Family Life Center.

Easter Celebration – Bring your basket for an Egg Hunt, the Easter story, and crafts and games. This event is for children up to fifth grade, and will take place regardless of the weather.

Boone United Methodist Preschool (BUMP) – This is a morning program for children aged 1 to 4 years old.  This program provides experiences which encourage the child to ask questions, explore, experiment, make friends, and to know that every person has value as a child of God.

Boooo-ne Treat or Treat –  Are you looking for a place to Trick or Treat in a warm, dry and
safe environment?  The Children’s Ministry will be hosting a great night of safe Trick or Treating on October 31 in the Family Life Center from 4:30 to 6:30pm. There will be lots of treats including a light dinner for those who want more than candy.

Now here is the important part! We need table hosts (you may do this individually or as a group!). We also need help with running games and serving hotdogs. Contact Colette Krontz or Candis Walker to volunteer or click here.

P.S. Candy donations are appreciated and can be placed in the containers outside Colette’s office.

Confirmation Youth – If we had to define the confirmation ministry at BUMC with one word it would be relationships. We want our confirmation youth to build relationships with other youth, with adults who care about them, and FIRST AND FOREMOST with God. 6th graders and older are invited to participate.  Registration Forms for the 2015-2016 Confirmation class are now available.
