SUNDAYS AT BUMC

Our outstanding children's program is located on the lower level of the Education Building, across the Cloister from the Sanctuary.  

Sprouts (1st-5th Grade)

Pics for Website - Children 5.jpgChildren may attend Sunday School at either 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. and then attend Worship the other hour with their families. Sunday School begins with a large group assembly time where the lesson for that day is taught. Afterward, children gather in small groups for crafts, games, and activities related to the lesson, as well as prayer. 

The current curriculum for 1st-5th Graders focuses on the various aspects of worship, such as the Lord's Prayer, Communion, and the Apostles' Creed. The goal is to help children know how to participate in worship with a body of believers.

We look forward to seeing your child this Sunday. Come at either 9:30 or 11:00 a.m.; either hour will be the best hour of your child’s week!

Preschool Sunday School class Feb 2017.jpgSeeds (Preschoolers and Kindergartners)

Sunday School for our Preschoolers and Kindergartners occurs in age-based classrooms. Their teachers lead them in Bible stories, songs, and crafts each week that are interactive and age-appropriate. Children in this area of the program have the opportunity to sing in Worship three times each year and also frequently partake of Communion in the Sanctuary as a group.

The Nest (Nursery)

The nursery is located on the lower level of the Education Building. Most of our Nursery Staff and Volunteers have been CPR trained. Beepers are also available.

An alternative to the Nursery is the "Cry Room" adjacent to the Sanctuary. The "Cry Room" allows parents to fully participate in worship while caring for their infants and small children.
