Children’s Ministry

The UCC Children’s ministry, called UCC Kids, provides a safe, spiritual, and fun environment for children to learn, grow, and feel loved. The Children’s Ministry offers age-appropriate classes for children from birth to 5th grade and hosts a number of family activities each year.

Jesus recognized the importance of children in his kingdom, and every child that walks through our door is treated with love and respect. From a special hands-on curriculum just for babies up to a curriculum designed for fifth graders, each age group is introduced to God and his son Jesus. We want children to develop a relationship with Jesus early in their life, so they can build a firm foundation.

PreSchool | 2-5 Years

A classroom just their size accompanied by a curriculum designed to introduce the Bible stories that teach them the basic principles of Jesus and his love.

Elementary | 5 Years – 5th Grade

Our elementary children receive a rock-solid look at the Bible.

Our first through third graders learn from the curriculum “Faithweaver Now” while fourth grade studies the Book of Acts and fifth grade concentrates on “My Body is the Temple of God” and the Life of Jesus.

This time of life is the perfect opportunity to plant the seeds of faith, and we do this by opening the word of God and showing them how this book is living and vital. Their Bible class time is filled with learning, games, and other activities that help them apply what they are being taught to their everyday life.

Children’s Worship | 3 Years – Kindergarten

Children three years old through kindergarten are released after the Lord’s Supper to attend their own time of worship.

During Sunday morning worship some of our children participate in a time we call “Children’s Church,” when our younger children exit our worship assembly for their own age-appropriate time of worship.

One Sunday a month we have “Children’s Time with Bradley,” when our kids go to the front for some fun learning time with Jennifer and our lead minister Bradley.


Every year, several events are conducted to enhance our children’s relationship with God and each other. Recent events include:

  • Vacation Bible School
  • Summer Activities
  • Family Nights
  • Holiday Outreach Project
  • Service Projects
  • Fall Festival Fun


We have great facilities for our children’s ministry. A nice worship center, SmartBoard technology and many other amenities enhance the ministry and learning opportunities for our children at UCC.


The children’s ministry is successful because of the women and men who give their time and efforts to spread the love of Jesus and teach the Good News to our children. If you enjoy babies, toddlers, preschool or elementary children, you will be blessed when you join the children’s ministry. Please prayerfully consider joining this ministry.

Contact Jennifer Welch for more info or to volunteer. Please note that all our volunteers are required to have a background check.
