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!

Vacation Bible School

August 5th - 8th

5:30pm - 7:30pm

This summer event will help kids dive into friendship with God. At Scuba VBS, kids will explore what it means to have a friendship with a real, loving, trustworthy God—a friendship that lasts forever! We’ll have four days full of faith discoveries, memorable music, and epic adventures that help kids grow in their faith! Register HERE by July 12.


Spread the word! Share this event with your friends and neighbors—on Facebook and in conversation. We want lots of children to learn and experience the love of God this summer at JUMC.

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.
