Children's Ministry

We are inclusive and accepting of all youth and meet them where they are in their journey to Christ. Our programming balances volunteerism, mentoring opportunities, and mission work with fellowship, small group opportunities, and faith formation.

If you are a visitor, we ask that you also check in through KidCheck. Free accounts can be created at kidcheck.com.

 
Volunteering with the Children and Youth
King Avenue UMC Children's Ministry is in need of volunteers. Our programs have grown over the past year to involve over 100 children each Sunday! We encourage all parents with children involved in our programs to volunteer for at least 1 event per session--each session is 12 weeks. Everyone is encouraged to volunteer regardless of age, availability, or experience. Most of the events require little or no preparation! Youth in grades 7 - 12 are also encouraged to volunteer! Training will be provided for every position. The training includes our KidCheck security system, Safe Sanctuary Policy, and training for the volunteer position. Please note that volunteers will be screened, interviewed, and asked to submit to a background check per our Safe Sanctuary Policy.
