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.

Safe Sanctuary

We are always interested in having more volunteers!  If you would be interested in working within our Children's Ministry, we'd love to have you!  Safe Sanctuary Training is required for all volunteers that work with our children and youth.  This training ensures the safety, not only for our children, but our volunteers alike.  For more information see our Safe Sanctuaries page HERE or contact Pastor Wendy Barnes.

(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.
