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



Children’s Church is coming to KUMC!
Starting April 8th, KUMC will now be offering Children’s Church as anoptionduring the 11:15am service!As always,children are welcome to remain in service with their families if you choose.
Children will start in the service with their family and after children’s time with Pastor Darlene, they will have the option to go to the Fellowship Hall for Children’s Church. They will then return to the service to take Communion with their families.
Children’s church will be available for all children that are potty trained through 2nd grade. Younger children will still be able to go to the nursery
So what happens in Children’s Church?
Children will be given a kid-friendly message based on the scripture reading for the day, and will do games, activities, crafts and songs to go along with the lesson!

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.
