The mission of the Children’s Ministry of Main Street UMC exists to teach Biblical knowledge, encourage and nurture spiritual growth, create a safe community that is welcoming and fun in which friendships are made, and instill a desire to serve others in order to provide a strong foundation for the Christian life of children. Our values are: Missions – a focus on serving others, Family and Community – a safe place for families and children in which Christ like relationships are built, Love and Care – reaching out to church members in need, Welcome and inclusivity – an environment where all are accepted as they are, and Gratefulness – thankfulness for the blessings of God. 

Sunday Mornings

Nursery provided for infants through age 2

Sunday school classes for ages 2 – 6th grade

Acolyte Ministry

Children, 3rd through 6th grades, are trained to serve God and Main Street UMC in this vital ministry, during the months of August through May. 

Easter Egg Hunt

During the Easter season, we celebrate with an ‘old fashioned’ Egg Hunt, for children of all ages.

Art Gala

Springtime we celebrate all things new, and God’s beautiful creations, with a few of the children’s own creations in the form of an art gala. This event is a culmination of the children learning about God’s word through the means of various art forms and is our annual children’s ministry fundraiser.

VBS

Each summer, Main Street UMC, hosts a VBS for children Pre-K through 6th grade. Our Pre-K through 4th grade children rotate through stations, learning about God through hands on activities, while our 5th and 6th grade students practice being the hands and feet through mission projects within our community.                                                                          

Trek & Treat 5K and Fall Festival

The annual fundraiser for our Main Street UMC Preschool takes place in the form of a 5K run/walk in conjunction with our church wide Fall Festival. This even includes food, carnival games, costume contest, ponies, petting zoo, and so much more! 

Happy Birthday Jesus

The children’s ministry hosts a Birthday Party for Jesus, during the month of December, where the children not only celebrate the birth of our Savior, but bring ‘gifts’ to the party in support of the ministry of their own choice.                                                    

White Christmas

The children praise His name in song and with instrument, during the annual church wide White Christmas special service, held each third Sunday evening in December.
