Sunday Mornings for Children

welcome Children & Families!

Sundays at Manchester UMC offer several different ways for the children of God and their families to grow in their faith and understanding of the Bible as they experience God with each other. Our staff and dedicated volunteers are called to make sure our children and families always feel welcome, safe and cared for by adults who model God’s love. We invite you to join us as we play and work each week to grow deeper in our learning together.

Family Worship Weekends

Family Worship Weekends provide an opportunity for families to worship together at either the 9 or 11a worship services. It is not only important for our friends to be in Sunday school, but to also understand how to worship and be in the sanctuary space. Learning together, families can discover more about the many different components of worship, liturgical seasons of the church, and share in their understanding and/or questions from the sermon.

To help encourage your child’s growth in worship, Worship Kits have been prepared for Sunday morning worship.  These materials are for ages 2-years-old through 5th grade. PRAYground is also available during worship.
