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!


Sunday Activities

Due to the COVID pandemic, we have made accommodations in various circumstances to meet virtually in order to stay connected. 

  • SUnday School

    Sunday school is offered for children age 2 – 5th grade at 9:45am on Sunday mornings.  Children learn the stories of Scripture through hands-on activities such as music, games and crafts.


    In order to gather together during this time, Sunday School has been moved to virtual meetings on Sunday evenings from 5:45pm - 6:15pm.  Please contact Dana Bird for Zoom meeting access.



  • Nursery & Childcare

    We offer nursery and childcare on Sunday mornings for children birth to 4 yrs of age so that parents can attend worship services and Sunday school classes. For more information on nursery & childcare please contact our Nursery Team Leader, Karen Teer.

Kid's Activities


  • Wednesday Night Fellowship Dinner Kid's Table

    The first Wednesday of each month the Wednesday Night Fellowship Dinner will have a kid’s
    table set aside just for the children.  Sorry parents, you’ll have to find your own table!  Children will have the opportunity to fellowship together and get to know one another as they eat yummy food.

  • Easter Egg Hunt

    Join us for an Easter egg hunt on Sunday, April 4th.

    Children, ages preschool through 5th Grade are invited to participate in our

    Annual Easter Egg Hunt.  Check-in is at 10:00am at the JUMC Playground and

    back field.  The Egg Hunt will begin at 10:30am.

    *Remember to bring your Easter Basket!


    Due to current COVID protocols this event will be limited to 50 participants.  Pre-registration is required.  Click the image to register.  Ages 2 and older will be required to wear a mask and encouraged to social distance.

     

    Upon arrival you will need to check in before entering the playground or participating in the egg hunt. For this reason, please plan to arrive no later than 10:00am to allow for this
    process and so we can begin the egg hunt at 10:30am.  If you plan to also attend the worship service following this event at 11:00am a separate registration and check in will be necessary. 

    Your understanding is appreciated as we attempt to return to some “normal” during these
    uncertain times.


    Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the church at 336-454-2717.

  • Vacation Bible School

    In July we plan to have four fun-filled nights of music, games, crafts and

    laughter as children learn about their faith.

  • Mount Shepherd Day Camp

    Your child can exchange screen time for sunshine this summer as we take JUMC children to Mount Shepherd Summer Camp for the week of July 12-16. The children will have a chance to get in the water every day, whether it’s the swimming pool or the lake, hike around the property, and enjoy games, fishing, arts and crafts, songs and devotions. Lunch and snack will be provided each day. 

    Registration deadline is June 30th.  Click the image to register.
