GRACE PLACE LEARNING CENTER
Schertz United Methodist Church offers a full-time childcare program for children in our community. Grace Place Learning Center, our full-time program, began in the fall of 2012 and is currently enrolling children of all ages. To learn more about Grace Place Learning Center, click here.
We have an excellent staff who share the love of Jesus with your children. All children ages newborn to 5 yrs are welcome! The nursery is open for church services and Sunday school and most church events and meetings.
Children’s classes are offered @ 10:15 am for children ages 3 years through 6th grade. Children are led in building a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through faith formation. Our curriculum is intuitive and innovative and is designed to activate faith in your children.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)
Every summer at Schertz United Methodist Church we host Vacation Bible School, a weeklong program using Bible stories, songs, arts and crafts, skits, and other activities geared toward sharing the Word with the children of our community.
3RD GRADE BIBLES
Every year, all 3rd graders are invited to participate in a special ceremony where they will be presented with a Bible from the church. It is our pleasure to share the blessings and wonders of God’s Word with our children.
This is a program created for preteens in 5th & 6th grades. We meet on Sundays from 1-3 pm. There are games, fellowship, and fun as we guide children through their relationship with God in this transitioning time in their lives.
Confirmation is a class in the United Methodist Church for 6th graders to confirm their faith and become a full member o
f the United Methodist Church. This class is an opportunity to learn the basic teachings of the Christian Church and explore what it means to follow Jesus Christ. We will explore who God is, who we are, what God has done for us, and what he calls us to do with our lives.
Children are invited and welcomed with open arms to worship with their families. Bringing children to worship is an essential part of their growth in Jesus Christ. During service children are invited to visit the Children’s tables where several child-led multi-sensory activities are available for their use. We also provide each child with a bag with crayons and bulletins for their use during service.
All children are encouraged to be involved in service throughout the church and the community. They may serve as liturgist, ushers, greeters, acolytes, choir members, drama participants, and much more!
