Overview

Young People

Toddlers & Wobblers

  • Infants - Age 3
  • Sundays From 10:15 am – 11:30 am In The Infant Center

Toddlers and Wobblers will be engaged in age appropriate Bible stories and activities.

Sunday School

  • Age 3 - Kindergarten Participate In Godly Play
  • 1st Grade – 5th Grade 
  • 10:15am – 10:45am In Various Classrooms

Children join adults in 10:15am Worship and leave about 10:45am (after the children’s sermon) for Sunday School. Sunday School ends at 10:45am.  We currently use a rotational model in which children experience a Bible lesson over a period of a few weeks. Each week they rotate to a different method of learning through storytelling, music, drama, arts, cooking, computers, games, etc. This engages children in various ways while encouraging participation. 

Summer Camp

The California-Nevada Annual Conference (the Annual Conference FUMC belongs to) runs 10 different camps across northern California for children once they reach the 3rd grade. Stay tuned for upcoming camping trips!

Music

At various times throughout the year, children practice and share a song in worship. This includes singing, playing bells or chimes, or other instruments. All children are welcome to participate in the experience.
