BUMC Kids

We partner with families to guide children (0 - 5th grade) in their growth as disciples of Jesus Christ through hearing stories from the Bible and experiencing God’s love. It is our goal to create a safe and loving environment where each child can discover who God is and learn that they are made in the image of a wonderful God.

Children are encouraged to participate in worship with their families during our three online services on Saturday at 5 p.m. and Sunday at 8:30 and 11 a.m.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday mornings with BUMC Kids is a unique time for children to grow in their faith through fun Bible-related activities, small group connections, and prayer. Faith formation activities are age appropriate and designed to help children grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Check out our BUMC Kids videos on our YouTube Channel.

While we are unable to meet in person, we are excited to offer a virtual Sunday morning experience for preschool and elementary aged children. Contact Gwen Sass (PreK-Kindergarten) or Megan Teegarden (1st-5th grades) for more information about how your child can get connected.

Day School

Part-time preschool for 1-5 years

The Day School's purpose is to provide each child with a program of planned experiences in living and growing with others, as well as to serve the community by offering parents a safe, educational environment for their children. We believe every child is a very special person, and it is our goal that each one leaves our program with a feeling of self-worth, a caring spirit and a love for learning.

Early Learning Center

Full-time preschool for ages 6 weeks to 5 years

The BUMC Early Learning Center ministers to the needs of young children and their families by providing a safe, loving, Christian environment to foster intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth and development.
