Roar VBS logo

At Roar!, kids discover that God is good even when life get wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Kids at Roar VBS will join a missions effort to provide nutrition packets and health checkups for moms and babies in need in Zambia, Africa, as well as collecting canned goods for Crossroad Food Panty.  If you’d like to volunteer, please let Kelly Carpenter or Kim Johnson know!

VBS will be held Monday – Thursday (July 8th – 11th) from 9 am to noon each day.  Ages 3 years (by January 1, 2019) through 6th grade (Fall 2019) are welcome. All children must be potty-trained, please

Nursery – infants through age 2 years

We provide loving childcare for infants and toddlers through age 2 in our Nursery on Sunday mornings in room 102 during the 9 am and 10:30 am Worship Services. Our Nursery is staffed by loving, fully trained adults who provide stories, crafts and music to our precious little ones.

We provide childcare for church sponsored events also. We ask that you call ahead to let us know you will need childcare for your event. You may make a reservation by contacting the church office or contacting Barb Jolley, Childcare Coordinator. Email.

A few reminders:
You must remain on the Christ United Methodist campus while your child is in childcare. Our childcare is a well child facility and we do not have the capability to care for children who are not feeling well. If your child is ill, please do not bring him/her to childcare.

5th & 6th Grade Tween Flicks

Meets on the second Sunday of each month (September - May) from 5:30 to 7:30pm during the school year for fellowship, spiritual growth, outreach projects, and group development.  Contact Barb & Jon Jolley for more information. 

Safe Sanctuaries

Because Christ United Methodist Church is a community of faith – a safe haven and sanctuary – where children and youth can be confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal we have implemented a Safe Sanctuaries Policy. This policy requires all volunteer leaders and staff to complete sexual abuse prevention training and complete a background screening.
