Children Ministry

HGUMC KIDS Ministry serves children from birth through 5th grade.


At Harmony Grove UMC, we strive to lead children into a growing relationship with Christ by creating an environment in which each child is encouraged to pursue friendship with God. They will have the opportunity to make friends with good people while discovering their God-given gifts and how to use them to positively affect their friends who do not know Jesus.

From birth, children are exposed to teaching that reinforces our vision. They are:

  • Given an opportunity to experience God’s love and forgiveness.
  • Taught how to make good friends.
  • Taught about spiritual gifts and how they can use theirs.
  • Instructed how to relate Christ to their friends in everyday situations.



Nursery is provided weekly for children ages Birth-3 years on Sundays and Wednesdays during all regular programming hours. The nursery is located downstairs in our Preschool wing. Our nursery staff are loving, dedicated, highly-trained individuals who are CPR certified and follow Safe Sanctuaries policies at all times. For more information or questions regarding our nursery, please contact Gretchen at

Sunday School hour: 9:30-10:30

At HGUMC, we follow a “one-room” Sunday School method to fit the needs and interests of all children ages Pre-K-5th. Each lesson is equipped with numerous activities that are easily adapted to enhance the learning experience of each child, regardless of their age. Older children are encouraged to lead their younger friends when necessary. We feel this opportunity encourages them to develop long-lasting friendships while having FUN learning about God’s love with each other!

New for Children’s Sunday School this Fall at HGUMC:
 “Bible Ninja Warrior Challenge”: August 12th-September 2nd

Don’t miss this 4-week Sunday School series learning the ancient wisdom of scripture through proverbs. Ninjas continually train to hone their skills and to be the best warriors they can be. If we train ourselves in the wisdom of the Bible we will be ready for whatever life throws at us!

“Slimed!”: Sept. 16th-Nov. 4th

We invite our Bible Ninja Warriors to come and follow us through the next 8 weeks as we use “slime” and the life of Jacob to teach kids that God specializes in messy situations!

“Holy Moly” Children’s Church-

Children ages 3 years-2nd grade are welcome to join us in the Godly Play Room following the children’s message at 11:00 worship.
