     Children's Ministry 

Children's Ministry: Let's build a foundation together!
“Point your kids in the right direction —
when they're old they won't be lost.” Proverbs 22:6 The Message
Jesus made it a priority in His ministry to draw children closer to God. He showed us the importance of providing children with a firm foundation for their faith. At Bucyrus UMC, we give children a consistent Christian experience that helps them build a Christian life and grow toward a permanent relationship with our Savior.
Our Children’s Ministry is led by the pastors with the assistance of experienced adults and youth who have been trained and background checked. This ministry is fulfilled through careful planning, communication with parents, intentional relationship building, patience, a sense of humor and a commitment to the call to make disciples for Jesus.
Highlights of a child’s Sunday-morning experience at Bucyrus UMC include:
Children’s Message
The pastors take time early in the Worship Service to chat with “the munchkins” about the message of the day and how it applies to their lives. Their use of humor and terms they can understand make this a treat for both the children and the grownups – and it sometimes includes candy!
Children’s Church
Following the Children’s Message, the children (up to age 5) are invited to attend JAM Children’s Church. The leaders bring the message of the day to life for the children through scripture, prayer, games, crafts, an abundance of fun and lots of love!
Junior Bell Choir
At least once a month, our Little Bell choir leads us in worship, the kids practice before Sunday School in the Worship Center Fellowship Hall.
Sunday School
Our Children’s Sunday School classes include: Pre-K & K, Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4, and Grades 5-6. The teachers use God’s Word and Jesus’ teachings, plus crafts and music, to show the children how much Jesus loves them and how they can be His friend for life.
