We love kids at Belgrade Avenue United Methodist Church and our Children's Ministry is

dedicated to teaching children about God in a fun and creative way. We are focused on

ages 3 through 6th grade, with continued opportunities as they grow into middle and high


Our children have a variety of opportunities to learn and grow through Sunday Worship, Sunday School, Wednesday Night programming (Veggie Tales Theater, Kids & Youth), and special events like Vacation Bible School that focus on faith and community building.

Your child's safety is incredibly important to us. All of our volunteers are screened and trained through Safe Sanctuary to ensure your child's safety while they are in our care. To learn more about our Children's Ministry visit our Children's Page.
