Children

Families who worship at ARUMC can grow in their faith with peers and together with our larger church family.  Our Sunday School programs follow the UMC Safe Sanctuary guidelines.

  • Nursery- We have a crib room for infants to age two with trained volunteers.  Come and see this attractive, efficient space. 
  • Explorers- Babies become toddlers and we welcome them to their own class with short Bible stories, games, and simple crafts. Most kids stay here until age 5.
  • FaithBuilders- Elementary school aged children come to this class where they memorize Bible verses, read Bible stories, and work on projects. Our Children’s Coordinator teaches this class with a rotation of volunteers.

We invite the families of our community to join us for vacation bible school (VBS) during the summer and at our fall festival & trunk or treat during the fall.

Messy Church meets at least every other month to explore God’s love in an accessible way for all ages.

The Messy Church Values are:

  • Creativity – We do arts, crafts, games to learn about Bible concepts and people.
  • Celebration – We come together to worship through song, movement, and prayer.
  • Hospitality – We sit together and share a meal.
