Children are an important part of Plymouth Park UMC. We believe that Jesus said, “Let the children come to me” because he knew that children are the present and future reality of this church and the church universal. We strive to be sure that they are prepared for it while still having fun in the Word.

Children’s Time and Children’s Church

Children’s Time is a special part of the 11:00 am service in which children come to the front of the sanctuary and are told the lesson in a child-friendly way. They may then go back to their parents or follow the Children’s Minister to Children’s Church. All children younger than kindergarten are taken to the nursery while kindergartners through second graders head to Room 106 for a lesson.
