Children

**COVID-19 UPDATE:  As of August 1, 2020, many of our normal “in-person” programs and social events, including Sunday School are on hold in this post pandemic world.  Several continue to meet on ZOOM, or in small groups that are socially distancing.  If you have a question, please contact the church office at info@sanctuarychurch.org.  The church and leaders strive to get back to the normal programs outlined below:

The NURSERY will be open for infants and toddlers beginning Sunday, August 2, 2020. 

Sunday School during the school year (September through June):

Nursery care for babies through age 2 is provided during the 9:15 and the 10:30 worship services every Sunday during the year by our paid nursery attendant.

Sunday school is available for ages 3 through 12th grades every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. throughout the school year.  Classes are divided by toddlers (2/3), pre-k/k (4/5) and elementary (grades 1st through 6th).

The elementary classes follow the Workshop Rotation Model (WoRM) where they learn the same concept/Bible story 5 or 6 different ways including the use of art, drama, music, cooking, science, games, video, and our popular computer lab.  Children have the opportunity to memorize scripture while they learn basic Bible knowledge and Christian concepts including meeting Jesus as Savior and Lord.

All curriculum is Bible based, and all teachers and helpers are required to follow the safe sanctuary policy of the United Methodist church. Often, snacks are offered during the Sunday school hour.

We especially invite the community to join us at these special annual children’s events:

The community Easter Egg Hunt is held before Easter each year.  Children ages 3 through 5th grade are invited!  Bring a basket and camera.  A crafts, snacks, and an organized egg hunt event will take place rain or shine.

Vacation Bible School is normally held during the summer, but no decision has been made for this year in light of the pandemic.

Please email the church office at info@sanctuarychurch.org to sign up for any event or to have your questions answered.

We welcome you and your family to these community events without fees attached.
