Children’s Ministry

Welcome the Children’s Ministry program at Monte Sano United Methodist Church. We are so glad your family has decided to come and join the fun.  If you have little ones they can become part of our fun. Our church has a Nursery, Infant Room, Toddler Room and an toddler outdoor playground.  Our leaders participate in Safe Sanctuary training, and have background checks.  

We have Sunday School Programs at 10:00 am each Sunday for infants through 5th graders.  There are activity bags outside the Sanctuary with quiet activities for younger children during the sermon.  Acolyte training is done once a year, and children are invited to attend and help with worship on Sunday mornings.

All of our Children's Ministry program promotes our ministry which exists to lovingly reach children and parents, to connect them with other Christians, to help them grow in their faith, to challenge them to love, and serve others, and to honor God with their daily lives. We also have other great activities and special events for parents and their children, Faith Finder Friends, children's choir, drama, and puppets, mission events, and the annual Easter festival and egg hunt, and trunk or treat for the whole community.  Vacation Bible School is held each summer, along with programs and day trips.  Come and share the fun!

The Infant Room

is equipped with cribs, pack-n-play, changing table, and provides privacy for breast feeding mothers.

The Toddler Room

is filled with equipment and toys appropriate for children who are walking through 3 years of age. There are also child-sized restrooms for those children undergoing potty training. Your toddler will have fun while the leaders of this group will have group activities that help the children learn and grow in their faith.

The Outdoor Playground is used only by children attending the nursery and is securely fenced and entered directly to and from the nursery.

In order for our Nursery Team to provide your child with the best care possible, we ask for your help with the following: Please bring a diaper bag supplied with at least 2 diapers, change of clothes, and if needed, a filled bottle. Please be sure to clearly label your child’s diaper bag, bottle/sippy cup, and other special items.
If you are a visitor, please complete a visitor card and the Nursery Leader will sign-in your child and give you a pick-up number. Visiting children will only be released to the person who signed the visitor card. If you are a church member or regular attendee, your child’s name should be on the sign-in sheet, just initial the time beside child’s name. For the health and safety of all, we kindly ask that children who have experienced the following in the past 24 hours not be brought to the nursery:
1.     Fever
2.     Vomiting or Diarrhea
3.     Persistent runny nose
