Central United Methodist Church is a family of faith that is passionate in its commitment to children and families.  We seek to walk with each person through all ages and stages of life, striving daily to love and live as Jesus did through thought, word, and deed. 

At Central our goal is to provide Christ-centered, faith-filled experiences through Bible study, music, missions activities, and opportunities for fellowship. 


Getting Connected…

There are so many ways for children and families to connect with others at Central Methodist.  On this page you will find some of them.

Children's Sunday School



Sunday Mornings    9:45—10:45 a.m.

Preschool & Kindergarten

Learning about the Bible and the rich and wonderful stories it contains is the focus of this group.  Each week children will have opportunities to hear stories and participate in activities that will help build the foundation of their faith and know the love of Jesus for them.

  • Infants – Age 2 nursery meets in Room 104.
  • Ages 3 & 4 meet in Room 101.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (children who will be entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2016) & Kindergarten children meet in Room 202.  Beginning in September, Cherub Choir will be taught during two of the Sundays each month, along with Bible lessons. 


Grade School

Building on the foundation is the next part of our faith journey.  Through a workshop rotation model, children explore the stories and teachings of the Bible through stories, games, movies, cooking, drama, and other activities that bring the Bible to them in ways that are relevant for life today. 

  • 1st - 5th Grades will meet together for Fellowship Time in Joseph’s Game Room—Room 301 (9:45 a.m.—9:55 a.m.).  Bible Study begins at 10:00 a.m.  Classes rotate between Rooms 301, 302, 303, and 304.  Schedules are posted on the classroom doors.
  • 6th Grade meets in the Creation Station classroom on the 3rd floor.
Children's Church



Following the Children’s Moment during the Sunday morning 8:45 a.m. and 10:55 a.m. worship services

We want to make sure our time of worship and faith development is rich and meaningful.  One of the ways we do that is to make the time of Children’s Church a time of faith development that is age-appropriate and in spaces that are child-friendly.  Children’s Church is offered for the following age groups:


  • Birth to age 2—Nursery care is provided in Room 104 for both Sunday School and Worship time.
  • Ages 3 through Pre-K—Childcare is provided in Room 101 for both Sunday School and Worship time.


8:45 a.m. Service—If you would like for your child to participate in worship and Children’s Moment, please bring him/her to worship with you.   Following the Children’s Moment, leaders will take your child to his/her classroom.

10:55 a.m. Service—If you would like for your child to participate in worship and Children’s Moment, you will need to pick him/her up from his/her classroom after Sunday School and take him/her to worship.  Following the Children’s Moment, leaders will take your child to his/her classroom. 


  • Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Graders are invited to attend worship and then go to Children’s Church following the Children’s Moment.  Children will be in the Chapel on most Sundays.  If the location changes, that will be posted on the door of the Chapel.
