Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry at Kyle United Methodist Church recognizes that all children are blessings from God. We have many programs for our little ones– such as Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, Nursery Care and Children’s Fellowship events.

Children’s Sunday School

Come Join us for Sunday School! We are starting a new, exciting Children’s Sunday School curriculum called Holy Moly! 

Holy Moly strives to ignite a biblical imagination that lasts a lifetime—an innovative Sunday school curriculum for kids in preschool through grade 5. With a combination of animated videos, creative activities, and age-appropriate Bibles, Holy
Moly brings the Bible to life. Every Holy Moly lesson follows a four-part sequence:
Discover, Relate, Connect, and Create. Each week, kids watch an animated Bible story video,
talk about the story, read their Bible Storybook or Bible, and try a creative leaflet activity.

Sunday School classes for all ages are in the Family Life Center at 10:00am

Preschool class: Ages 2-4

Kindergarten through 2nd Grade Class

Third through Fifth Grade Class

What you need to know about children in church

What if they get fussy, or are loud, or even start crying?

When you are here, the church is filled with a beautiful, joyful noise, and we would not trade that for all the silence in the world. It might not seem that way in the moment, you might even feel like everyone is looking at you, but the presence of children in the church (regardless of whether they are quiet or loud) reminds us that worship is not about quiet contemplation and ceremony, but coming together as a community to share in the grace of God. They might not get it fully right now, but you’re helping to build a relationship between them and God, and that’s a good thing.

 Can my children participate in service?

There is a designated children’s message time just before the sermon. During that time we normally breakdown the message of the sermon in a way that children can better understand.All children (young and old) are invited to come up and participate in this part of the service, and pick something from the “treasure chest” before returning to their seats.

Preschool and nursery age children can go to the nursery at the end of the children’s message and be picked up after the service is over, but do not have to.

Where is the nursery?

All of our classrooms (including the nursery) are in the Family Life Center. If you enter the church through the Fellowship hall, it is the building across from the playground.

You are welcome to leave your child (or children) with the nursery worker for the entire service, or just after the children’s message.  Nursery is available during Sunday School as well if you would like to attend an adult Sunday school class. We have a Child Information sheet for you to fill out when you leave your child and are currently working on getting our pager system back up and running.
