Sunday Mornings

J.A.M. (Jesus and Me) – 9:30 and 11 am

JAM logo

J.A.M. is our Sunday elementary ministry for children in Kindergarten though 5th grade.

We use Deep Blue Kids, a United Methodist Curriculum. With Deep Blue, children will make Bible stories, Bible people, and Bible passages a part of their lives. They will also come to know the Bible as THEIR book and find ways to let the Bible speak to them today! Deep Blue incorporates Bible stories, science activities, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games into a lived-faith experience that will help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today. The Deep Blue kids—Asia, Edgar, and Kat—will lead the children through the Bible using animated videos that tell the story. The student resources-the Bible Story Stuff, the Kids Activity Stuff, and the Deep Blue Kids Bible—are colorful and engaging, encouraging the children to “dive deeper” into the Bible and explore their faith in fun and age-appropriate ways.

J.A.M. meets in the Fellowship Hall, and includes large and small group experiences.

Wee Worship – 9:30 am

Wee Worship is our Sunday preschool ministry for children 3 through 5 years old.

Wee Worship meets at 9:30 am in classrooms F-4/F-5 in Fellowship Hall. Preschoolers are also welcome to join J.A.M. during the 11 am service.

Wee Worship


All children should check in at the kiosk in the Fellowship Hall lobby no earlier than 15 minutes before the service. Parents, you will be asked for your check-in receipt when you pick up your child at the end of the service. On your first visit, you’ll be asked to fill out a registration form, or you can pre-register online.

There is no programming for preschoolers and elementary age students on the first Sunday of each month (Family First Sundays), in order for children to participate in worship with their families.



Nursery for children birth-36 months is available in the Sanctuary during the 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services. On your first visit, you’ll be asked to fill out a registration form, or you can pre-register online. Pagers are available so you can be reached if your little one needs you! Of course they may also join you in worship.

Please check out our Weekday Play Day if you are interested in nursery care during the week.

Infant and Child Baptism

Baptism is a divine act, a pledge and gift God gives to us. Baptism of children includes the reaffirmation of the vows of the baptismal covenant by parents, sponsors, and the congregation; but chiefly it celebrates what God is doing and will do in the life of the infant or child. If you are ready to lead your child into a life of discipleship to Jesus Christ, with the support of this church, contact Director of Children’s Ministry Amelia May.
