Children's Ministry

Welcome to the Jamestown Children’s Ministry. We are excited about God and thrilled to teach children about God. As your child spends time in our program they will learn the stories of God found in Scripture, fellowship with other children, worship in community, and serve others through mission and outreach events. And they’ll have lots of fun!

Core Values

  • To equip parents for spiritual leadership.
  • To know every child by name.
  • To guide children to Christ and to nurture their relationship with Christ.
  • Every child will know they are loved by God.
  • Trained volunteers who love God and children’s ministry.

Get Involved!

(Sundays) R.O.C.K.@5

Every Sunday evening the JUMC children, ages 4 yrs. - 5th grade, meet for a time of fun, food, fellowship, singing, and learning. The evening begins with children’s choir, directed by Teresa Allred, where the children praise God as they learn worship songs along with hand motions. Following choir, the children gather in the Fellowship Hall to eat dinner together and fellowship. 


Once their bellies are full, the students will have their Bible lesson where they will learn about the books of the Bible and the stories they tell us about God. After digging into Scripture there is free time for the children to enjoy playing games and hanging out with one another.   We invite students to join in this fun-filled time. Have questions or would like more information? Contact Pastor Wendy Barnes here.

December

 

  • Children’s Christmas Cantata | December 5 | 11:00 AM

  • Christmas City | December 12 | 5:00 - 7:00 PM

    At Christmas City, you and your children will “travel the globe” to experience unique holiday traditions. With passports in hand, families will visit each station to engage their senses in a global celebration of food, song, crafts, games, and more!


    During this event, the students will be presented with a "passport." We'd like to have a picture of each student so that we can have their passports ready when they arrive. We ask that you upload a "headshot" picture of each child that is planning to attend.


    If you have any questions about the event, please contact Pastor Wendy Barnes. If you have any questions regarding the sign-up, please contact Dana Bird.
