We partner with parents, grandparents, and guardians in a very important task — raising the next generation of believers and servants. Brunswick United Methodist is committed to offering children's programs that nurture kids' souls. Our dynamic Education Team uses a wide variety of activities, mission projects, arts and crafts, and personal discipleship to help children learn the fundamentals of the Christian faith with the goal of developing a strong spiritual foundation and a sense of belonging in the community of faith.
For more information about each of our programs, we invite you to read through the descriptions below:
We offer Sunday School classes each Sunday morning for children and youth ages Preschool through Senior High. Classes meet during the regular morning worship hour, roughly from 10:15-11AM. Children will start in the Sanctuary with their parents. About 15 minutes into the service, they will be invited to come up front with the Pastor for a children's moment. Our enthusiastic Education Team will then lead them to the Sunday school and provide fun kids' programming throughout the year, including Christmas and Valentine's Day parties. We also sponsor an annual Easter Egg Hunt and a Trunk-or-Treat event that is popular with the whole community. During summer months students and teachers enjoy a holiday — older children join parents, guardians and grandparents in the worship service, while younger children (through 5th grade) enjoy Children's Church (sometimes held outside in our gazebo) consisting of a Bible Story and a simple craft or other hands-on activity.
New! Young Adult Class
Real Life. Real People. Real Faith. This dynamic class on "Perspective Faith" is open to college students and all young adults. We are a diverse group who understand life gets weird. We've saved a seat for you - come join us Sundays at 11:15AM or immediately following the worship service in the Rainbow Room (formerly known as the youth room) downstairs.
Kidz Connect - Wednesday Night Children's Program
A mid-week evening program for grades pre-K through 5. Led by our Christian Education Director, Kidz Connect is the highlight of the week for many local families. Music plays an important role in the learning process and in the fun. The "Wednesday-Nighters" present several highly-anticipated Bible-based musical dramas each year.
