Schertz UMC Kids

"We serve to share the Good News to all God's children through love, example and action."

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, Sunday school, and most church events and meetings.

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.
Children are never too young to participate in worship and are welcome, with open arms, at Schertz United Methodist Church! Wiggle Worship aims to provide a fun environment for the children of SUMC to learn more about Jesus Christ. This opportunity is available to all children that are potty trained and the nursery is still available for those that have not yet reached this milestone!
The children who attend SUMC are a valuable part of our church family. Our children's worship leaders aim to ensure that they grow up with a knowledge and understanding of Christ. They serve to share the Good News to all God's children through love, example and action. As these little people grow older we hope to support them as they make their own decisions about what Christianity means to them.
To meet this need during the 11:15 am Sunday service we will learn about bible stories, discuss their relevance to us and of course to do some much loved coloring and crafts! The children and their leaders leave the main service (and remain in the Sanctuary in a separate worship space, tailored just for them) before the sermon and return after, allowing them the opportunity to take part in the "big people" service as well as learning in an environment that is more appropriate for them. 
We also arrange occasional all-age services; giving the adults a chance to appreciate our young people as they lead our prayers, provide our Bible readings, and occasionally help with serving communion.
We are always happy to welcome more small people to join Wiggle Worship. Everyone is welcome to come along on a Sunday morning to see what we get up to!
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.
Confirmation is a class in the United Methodist Church for youth to confirm their faith and become a full member of 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.
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!
