Children's Programs

Children are especially welcome at Wimberley United Methodist Church!  Leading Christian educators believe that faith is “caught” and not “taught.”  What better way for children to know what faith is all about than to be a full time member of a community!

At Wimberley UMC, we believe:

  • God put the wiggle in children - don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house.

  • Explain quietly to children the parts of the worship service.

  • Help your child find pages in the Hymnal or to follow along on the screen. 

  • It is OK if they stand on the pew to see and to sing!

  • Sing the hymns, pray and voice the responses. Children learn good behavior in church by copying yours.

  • Remember that we ALWAYS welcome children in church!  Let them know that they are at home and have an extended “family” in church.

 

Each year there are many opportunities for children to be involved in different programs and ministries. We strive to help children and families take the love of Christ to a different level. Some of the programs include Children's Sunday, Pumpkin Patch, Fall Festival, Gingerbread House Event, Christmas Eve family service, and more.

Playground Small Group
every Sunday except the 1st (Family Chapel)
PreK4-5th Grade
In Person

Small Group time on the church/preschool playground every Sunday except the first Sunday of the month (Family Chapel is the first Sunday of the month). This will be a time for us to dig deeper in the weekly KidzChurch lesson and build closer friendships.

Nursery
Ages Newborn to Three Years

Children in our nursery will start to learn that church is a fun and safe place full of people who love them and who want them to know all about God's love, too! The caring adults and youth on our nursery staff enjoy sharing stories, toys, and songs with the infants and toddlers. Meets in the First Steps Nursery.
