Childcare is available for newborns through preschool during all of our regularly scheduled ministry activities. Our children’s workers are church members who have undergone background checks, received instruction about appropriate interaction with children, and been trained in “Reducing the Risk.”
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Jesus loved little children, and so do we! We believe that it is very important for small children to receive quality attention and care, and we make great effort to pour the love of Christ into them.
Our vision for the UBC Kids ministry is to glorify God by giving every child the opportunity to learn about God, come to faith in Christ, and nurture a desire to serve Him.
Our Community Group classes range from newborn through 6th grade. We use the Gospel Project Kids curriculum, which is a Christ-centered Bible study resource that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events. It presents the story of God’s redemption through Jesus in a way that is both enjoyable and rich with truth! Each week, these stories come to life through video, song, activities and more.
If you have 1st-4th graders, Kids Worship is an option you may want to consider. It is an alternative to the adult sermon that we offer every other week. During this time, children are taught to worship through music, Bible stories, key Bible verses, life application videos, arts and crafts, dramatic play, games, exploration and discovery. Kids love to worship God together! To participate, kids gather at the main entrance to the sanctuary once the music portion of the service is complete, and leave together with their leader to go to their worship room.
Our midweek children’s Bible class uses the Faith Weaver Friends (FWF) curriculum. Engaging Discover Center activities and caring small groups build strong kid-to-kid and adult-to-kid relationships. The evenings consist of large group time, small groups, music, puppets, snack, crafts, and games.
