"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God."

We work constantly to find new ways to make the love of Jesus Christ real to the children of our community! Besides our weekly activities, throughout the year we have fun special events like the annual Easter Egg hunt, Trunk or Treat, and Vacation Bible School. Our church family welcomes children of all ages, needs, and abilities.

Sunday Morning Activities

Nursery care is offered for young children for almost every church event. You can rest assured that there will always be a capable, caring adult ready to care for your child during any of our worship services. If you have questions about the availability of nursery care at any other event, please contact us.


Sunday School

Classes welcome children ages 2 and up (while nursery is offered as well for those under 2). A strong background in Christian education can provide a foundation in these formative years. We gather for fun, fellowship and learning along with crafts, snacks, games and Bible stories to enrich your child's learning. Sunday School classes teach Bible stories and help children learn to apply them to their everyday lives.

Our teachers are waiting to help teach your little ones to grow to love Jesus.

Children's Church is a special time of worship for children between two and ten years old. With the help of loving adults, the children learn the stories of the Bible and begin to develop their own worship habits. We offer activities, snacks, and Bible stories during the adult 9am worship service. The children go upstairs to their separate worship space where they learn to sit still in their own chairs, listen to the word of God, and practice worship for a shorter, more age appropriate time. At least two adults are in the room at all times.

Sunday Evening Activities


Children's Choir practice is held each Sunday evening at 5:15 PM.

Providing a children’s choir in which they can learn, grow, move, and serve is an important way to accomplish spiritual growth in each child’s life. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Involving kids in worship early can keep them involved into adulthood. A children’s choir can be an fantastic tool to train children up to be lifelong worshippers and can also be a way to bless the congregation.

Our children's choir is a parent led activity and gives children the opportunity to worship Christ through song. The children perform during the 9am worship service on special Sundays such as Easter and Christmas. Children learn by participating, we invite your child to learn and grow with us each Sunday evening.

Wednesday Evening Bible Study

Children's Bible Study is held each Wednesday evening during the school year at 6:30pm. This parent led study offers hands on lessons for kids to apply the love of Christ to their daily lives.


Twice a year, Kids' Night Out is offered for parents to have an evening to themselves. Around Valentine's Day, kids come to the church for three hours to enjoy games, snacks, activities, and crafts while their parents have a date night. In late November/early December, kids come back for those three hours so that parents can go Christmas shopping in peace! Check out our calendar or our events page to see upcoming children's activities. Also check us out on our Facebook group: Sulphur Springs UMC Kid's Ministry for day to day updates.


Our Halloween celebration consists of our church adults decorating their vehicle trunks and handing out candy to the costumed children! We have competitions for the best decorated trunk, and the best dressed child.
