Our Kids Ministry
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.

Sunday School Weekly at 10am
Children's Church Weekly at 11am
On Sunday mornings we seek to plant seeds of the Gospel and desire for every child to know who they are and who's they are - beloved children of God. We pray each child will grow in their hunger to know, passionately love, and boldly live for Jesus!
Wednesday Nights @ 6:15
Wednesday nights are for Awana - a fun and engaging discipleship program for children 3-years through 5th grade. Children participate in Bible discovery, Bible memory, games, worship, community building, and small group discussions. We desire for our youngest members to become the body of Christ and encounter God.
Birth to Pre-K
Nursery is available every Sunday as well as Wednesday nights during Awana. Children in the nursery get the same great love and care as the older kids as we share Gods love with them through interaction, play, lessons and other fun activities! Our desire is to provide a safe, loving, and fun environment for your child to begin and grow in their relationship with Jesus.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
our 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.
