BUMC Kids

The Brentwood United Methodist Church campus is closed for now, but our ministry never stops. We're now offering online and limited in-person worship at 8:30 and 11 a.m.

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.

Worship

We believe in corporate worship where children of all ages are welcome in all of our worship services, and we strongly believe that worshipping together as a family is vital to a child’s spiritual development.

Children are encouraged to participate in worship with their families during our two online services 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 gsass@bumc.net (PreK-Kindergarten) or Megan Teegarden mteegarden@bumc.net (1st-5th grades) for more information about how your child can get connected.

Wonder of Worship

For 4 and 5-year-olds during all worship services.

Wonder of Worship is similar to a Sunday School class, in that your child will hear a Bible Story and do an age-appropriate activity. Children are invited to the beginning of worship with their families, and a worship slide will show before the sermon begins announcing the start of Wonder of Worship. At that time, parents can escort their children to meet Miss Gwen in the Narthex.

Want to know more about Wonder of Worship? Contact Gwen Sass at gsass@bumc.net to learn more.

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.
