Sunday school TEACHER & AIDE TRAINING – September 17, 10:30-11:30am, Fireside room. #ReturntheBlessing (preK-5th grade) *Snacks & childcare provided.
Why teach or aide in Sunday school? To create a welcoming, safe, friendly place for children in church, to hear children explain God, to give back what the church has given you.
Without teachers & aides God’s sheep can not learn about the messages that are vital to a growing Christian mind. If you have children that attend Sunday school regularly, grandchildren or just want to give back what LGUMC has given to you please think about either teaching or helping out in the classroom.
Never taught Sunday school or helped out? No worries. Our training, led by Children’s Ministry Director Susan Berrios, along with current teachers, will guide you through steps and help you with every aspect of being in the classroom.

KIDS COUNT at LGUMC!
This mission of the Children’s Ministry at LGUMC is to help children grow in God’s love and discover the joy of following Jesus. We strive to create a loving, fun environment in which every child feels welcomed and encouraged to BELONG, GROW in faith and SERVE the world with love. We want our kids to learn about God’s love by experiencing it in us! We offer child care and Children’s Time at both the 9:15 and 11:00am worship services.
Sunday school is offered during the 9:15 service. After Children’s Time, those children who wish may go to their classrooms for Sunday school. Following worship, children may be picked up in their classroom or on the church playground.
Nursery care for our youngest children (infant-4yrs)
The LGUMC Nursery is a place where parents can confidently know that their babies and little ones are cared for in a safe and loving environment filled with age appropriate toys and books. You can drop your infant/toddler off before heading into the sanctuary or after Children’s Time. We also have a private Nursing Mother’s Room located in our nursery.
Early Elementary Sunday School (kinder-2nd grade)
We follow a curriculum called Deep Blue. This weekly adventure teaches kids to be Jesus’ disciples with activities, crafts, games, videos, music & worship, science experiments, and more. We often end in the playground area.
Older Elementary Sunday School (3rd grade – 5th grade)
We follow a curriculum called Deep Blue. This weekly adventure teaches kids to be Jesus’ disciples with activities, crafts, games, videos, music & worship, science experiments, and more.
SAFETY is our FIRST PRIORITY
Sign In and Out
Nursery Care: We ask that you sign your children IN and OUT and that you leave a cell phone number should we need to contact you during the worship service.
Sunday School: We ask that you sign your child out of Sunday School when you pick them up to ensure that they are picked up by the proper persons.
Our Children’s Ministry staff is filled with individuals who care deeply about all of the children at LGUMC and wish to serve God and our church by guiding our children on their spiritual journey. All of our Sunday School teachers and nursery staff go through a thorough background check.
