HUMC Kids

 

 

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.
