Decatur FUMC Children's Ministry

Spark Children's Ministry aims to teach children from birth to 5th grade about the Bible and Jesus. We have so many fantastic programs that allow our wonderful team of volunteers to journey with your children on their faith adventures. We offer our brand new Children's Church held during worship on Sunday mornings, Godly Play during the Sunday school time, and Wednesday night choir and fellowship! Our focus is on the Bible, imagination, and fun! Our dream is that our children would know how loved they are by our Church family and most importantly by Jesus! 

"But Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of Heaven.'”

Matthew 19:14

  • Children's Church

    Children's Church returned from a virus hiatus on November 8th!

    Students are to be dropped off in the Worship Room on the 3rd floor before service begins. Once in worship, the children will experience age-appropriate worship, lessons, and games while still preserving some of the beloved traditions of our church!

    Children will come back into the worship service after the sermon to sit with their families during the last song and the benediction! 

    Don't worry if you're new; we have signs placed around the church that will help you get to where you need to go!

  • Wednesday Nights

    Wednesday nights in-person are postponed due to COVID-19, but you can go to our YouTube Page every Wednesday evening to find a "Wednesday Watchings" video!

    On Wednesday nights, starting at 6:00pm, our children attend children's choir, led by our incredible music director, Dr. Tommy Davis. After choir, the children go to the 3rd floor Worship Room to experience games and a lesson, which emphasize what they learned on Sunday morning! Bring your kids to hang out and learn with us!

  • Godly Play

    Godly play is currently postponed due to COVID-19
    We know that kids get tired of constantly having to sit still and listen to a lesson during church, so we practice, "Godly Play!" This type of Sunday School is a way that kids can enjoy themselves while still learning a lot about God! Children can be signed-in for Godly Play on the 2nd floor landing of the children's wing! The Godly Play Room is located directly across the hall from that landing!
