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.

  • Vacation Bible School

    Treasured VBS will be hosted from August 1st to August 5th. 


    At Treasured, kids discover God’s greatest treasure isn’t diamonds, gems, or gold – it’s them!  Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind 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 Closing Quest that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.  Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 6:00pm.

     

    Come back soon for more information.

  • 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.
