Children's Ministries

Birth to 11 Years Old

Children are born with an innate sense of wonder and faith that is real and authentic. As teachers and leaders our role is to provide a foundation of experiences on which children build a life of learning and growth toward a mature and vital faith.

 

Discipleship

While the United Methodist Church recognizes it is fundamental that children learn to read and do not go to bed hungry, the heart of "We Love All God’s Children" is telling children about Jesus Christ. We go on to care for the whole person. Children are natural learners, including learning about their faith. When the church comes alongside a child, we are making a difference for the Kingdom of Heaven.

Health

While most of us go to bed with plenty to eat, one in four Texas children goes to sleep hungry, according to a study from Feeding America. Food deserts are present in most of our backyards. And the most basic needs for good health are not being met for underserved children. This is where the church can come alongside these children to provide essential services.

Literacy

Students unable to read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school when compared to proficient readers. That number increases significantly when those children come from poverty. Children who attend preschool begin kindergarten one to two years ahead of under resourced children. As these children grow, the gap continues to widen.

Weekday or preschool

Weekday or preschools can make a huge impact on the lives of our children, but our churches and communities. Young children need a loving and safe where both curriculum and hours of operation to meet the needs of families in their community.
