We love kids at Belgrade Ave. UMC 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 school.
Our children have a variety of opportunities to learn and grow through Sunday Worship, Sunday School, Wednesday Night programing (VeggieTales Theater & Kids & Youth), and special events like VBS and Sunday Funday 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.
