Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
At Goddard UMC we want to see God’s potential for your children maximized and we are dedicated to partnering with parents to lead children to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. It is said that the average child will spend less than 40 hours in church each year. Yet the average parent will get around 3000 hours with their child each year. As the parent, you have the greatest potential to impact the heart of your child. This includes their spiritual development. This is why we are dedicated to supporting you as you teach and model to your children what it looks like to follow Jesus and become disciples as they grow older. This is the heartbeat of our children’s ministry as we desire to see every family experience the grace and love of Jesus in deeper ways week in and week out.
Your child's safety is of utmost importance to us here at Goddard UMC. Our amazing team of volunteers ensure each child feels safe, known, and loved while learning the good news of God's Word. Our Children's Team members are Safe Sanctuaries trained, background checked and excited to share the Good News of Jesus with each child!
In order to keep your child safe and to ensure we are able to care for them in the case of an emergency, we ask that each child have an activity waiver on file for any off-site activities.
