Children’s Ministry


Children’s Ministry

Linworth United Methodist Church’s children’s ministry is dedicated to creating disciples for Jesus Christ, one child at a time.

Our Philosophy of Education

Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes a child, welcomes me.” All children are welcome at LUMC. It is our responsibility to share God’s love through the ministry to the children and families of the church. We believe that Christian Education will help guide and strengthen the relationship a child has with God. We will love and support the children of LUMC in becoming deeply committed Christians.

Sunday School

Sunday School Curriculum

Our nursery and toddler/twos classroom offers a safe and caring environment for your little one. There are age appropriate toys to explore and enough room for free play with friends. Sunday School curriculum begins with three year olds and continues through 6th grade. The main idea of the curriculum is to follow the benchmarking guidelines of the United Methodist Church. As a child grows through their Sunday School years, we will focus on Biblical learning that is age appropriate. Each child will learn the same Bible verses and stories as it applies to their grade level. The goal is for each child to be Biblically, socially, and spiritually prepared as they go into Confirmation and the Youth Program.

Sunday School classes are grouped by age or grade level. Teachers commit to a Sunday schedule so that there is consistency for the children. All of our teachers and childcare providers have completed a screening process and completed Linworth’s Safe Sanctuary Training.

On the first Sunday of each month, the 2nd – 6th graders during the 9:00 service and the 4th – 6th graders during the 10:30 service attend the worship service so they can receive Holy Communion and experience worship with their families.
