The Children's Ministry of Avon United Methodist Church reaches God's littlest disciples. The ministry exists to reach children for the Lord, equip families to grow in Christ together and to have fun doing it. We meet Sunday mornings during both services. Children participate in songs, videos, objects lessons, classroom learning and other methods to keep them interested in learning. Periodically there are other children's events including an Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, Fall Fun Night, and Breakfast with Santa. When you arrive on Sunday mornings please meet us in the Children's Ministry space inside our church Gathering area to register your child and meet our ministry team.
Held each Sunday morning during both our 9:00 service and 10:30 service, KidsChurch is a place for kids to learn about God in a relevant and fun way. Little ones learn about God in simple ways with crafts and age-appropriate, preschool lessons. Older kids, in Kindergarten to fifth grade, are encouraged to join us for fun of their own. Using a brand-new curriculum, the kids learn from “agricultural time-travelers” known as the Truth Trackers how the Old Testament and the New work together to teach us life-changing truths. They won’t want to miss a week as there is a new incentive program that encourages learning through “heartwork”, not “homework”.
Vacation Bible School or VBS is traditionally one of the biggest summer church events for children. Held mid-summer in the evening, our VBS program will not disappoint. We use new and exciting programming and learn about God in developmentally appropriate terms for kids from aged three (potty trained) to fifth grade. Our volunteers and parents look forward to this week all year long! Registration goes live on our site a month in advance.
Our 2019 VBS program was "ROAR - God's Wild About You!," and our 2020 theme will be the "Rocky Railway!"
Trunk-or-Treat is fun for the whole family, on Sunday, October 27, starting at 1:00pm! Wear your costume, and check out all the trunks passing out candy! Not just for little kids or families with kids, this event is for everyone. If you don't have kids at home, maybe you would like to decorate your trunk to pass out candy to the little ones. Or maybe you can donate candy, then join us for a fun afternoon of games, food and fun.
Each year, we encourage the Christmas spirit in our families with a special event aimed at our littlest angels. Good food, fun crafts and a visit from the Jolly ol’ Elf and the Mrs. promise something for all ages. Mark your calendars today, because on December 14 we will have an evening aboard the Polar Express that you won’t want to miss. You can even wear your PJs to the party! Come back for more details very soon!
Hey, Mom and Dad! Are you looking for an evening off (from the kids, at least!)? Watch this space for selected Saturdays to drop the kids off at church from 5 - 8pm, where they will enjoy pizza, games and plenty of fun, and you're on your way! Suggested donation: $10/kid.
Stuck for something to do, now that you don't have kids in tow on a Saturday night? We will strive to provide an evening of entertainment with friends from church (5:30-7:30pm) for a minimal cost!
