Growing young disciples in God's love

Every week at Epworth


Children of any age are welcome in all worship services at Epworth UMC.  Activity bags are provided.  Nursery care for infants through 4-year-olds is also available during all worship services, with both paid and volunteer staff.

Sunday School & Children's Choir

Classes for all ages meet every Sunday morning from 9:50 - 10:45 am.  Children learn with their peers in preschool (3- to 5-year-olds), younger elementary (kindergarten - 2nd grade), or older elementary (3rd - 5th grade), and then all gather for music in the choir room.  Nursery care is also offered during this time.

Community Service

Children help pack food backpacks for local elementary school students, make cards for the elderly, serve at the Food Bank, and join in the whole congregation's outreach.

After-School Tutoring

Students from Hope Valley Elementary School come down the block for tutoring at Epworth on Mondays and Wednesdays after school.

And more...

Throughout the year, there's always an intergenerational event, children's musical, parents' gathering, Vacation Bible School, or seasonal festival coming up soon!  Your family is welcome at any and all gatherings at Epworth--we are intentional about providing spiritual activities for kids alongside adults so that everyone can grow in God's love and grace.
