Children

Genesis United Methodist Church

 
Overview

Our goal is to partner with parents to help each child become the person God intended him or her to be. In our classrooms, you will find trained volunteers who will love your kids, sharing lessons that are experiential, fun and relevant. We strive to keep the lessons simple and clear so that kids walk away with a message that will stick with them. Together we can lead our children to become disciples of Jesus Christ who will love God, love others and serve the world.

Infants and toddlers are cared for by a loving staff of trained caregivers in Children's Alley during worship services and special events.
