HUMC Kids provides programs and activities for children through 6th grade. We offer many opportunities for children and their families to grow in their relationship with God and with one another, including Kid's WorshipSunday School, and UPWARD Basketball (in season).   Click on the menu to the right (or below if you are on a smaller screen) to learn more. 

HUMC offers children many opportunities to express themselves and praise God.  Learn more here about the children's choirs, bell ensemble and puppet ministry.  Practices run between September and May each year, with performances in worship, at Wednesday night GIFT Dinners, and sometimes outside HUMC.  New members are always welcome.

Each year we offer many special events for HUMC Kids and the community, the big events include the Easter Egg Roll and Pancake Breakfast, Vacation Bible School (registration opens May 1), Trunk-Or-Treat, and the Christmas Pageant. Check back here for the latest information on these and other events.

We observe Safe Sanctuary guidelines and strive to be allergy aware to maintain a safe but FUN environment for all of the children!  If you want to participate, please make sure that we have a current set of Connection Project forms for your family.



Over Labor Day weekend, Herndon UMC announced that Christine Hoyle, our Children's Ministry Director will be leaving us.   While Christine has been at Herndon UMC for just over a year, she has spent the last seven years serving in ministry to children and youth.  Her family's schedules have changed and Christine needs to be there to support her family.  Although we will miss her greatly and are sad to see her go, we support Christine in this decision. 

Christine's ministry at Herndon UMC has meant so much to our whole church family.  Please be sure to let Christine know how much she and her ministry here at Herndon UMC meant to you.   Her last Sunday will be September 16. 

KIDS CLUB kicks off on Sunday, September 9 at both the 9am and 10:30am services. This year we will have two classes at 9 AM, one for Pre-K - 2nd grade and one for 3rd - 6th grade. There will be one class during the 10:30am service.

Every Sunday, Pastor Jonathan will have a Children's Sermon and then children will be invited to go to KIDS Club.

Children's worship bags and weekly Children's Bulletins are available for children who wish to remain in the worship services.

Thanks to everyone who participated in and volunteered for the Easter Egg Roll.  It was a successful event pairing up with HUMC Preschool for their GIFT dinner.  All the proceeds from dinner benefited the Preschool Scholarship Fund.  We had over 50 kids and 10 adults (a.k.a. really big kids) rolling eggs, making crafts and enjoying fellowship.  Thanks also to Joyful Noise for sharing their wonderful songs.
