Nurturing young minds and spirits
TUMC offers Christian Education for all ages on Sundays from 10 a.m.-11 a.m., September to June.
Preschool: Children ages 3 & 4 meet in the second floor nursery for singing, snack, Bible story, crafts and activities related to a Bible story. 2-year olds are invited to attend with a parent.
Senior kindergarten to Grade 5: Kids in this thriving group gather downstairs at 9:45 for pre-Sunday school time of singing and learning new songs together. This gives children the opportunity to be part of the worship service as a choir four times a year, as well as occasionally put together a musical or special program.
Curriculum: TUMC uses the Shine On curriculum published by MennoMedia, which offers creative and active ways to interact with the biblical story. Families with young children receive a Shine On story Bible to read together at home, so parents can be active participants in their children’s faith development.
Fun and faith
Social activities for TUMC kids on other days of the week are organized through Venture Club (Grades 1–5), GERMS (Grades 6–8), and TUMY (Grades 9–12). TUMC also has many university and college students and other young adults, who hold regular potlucks and other gatherings. Upcoming events appear in the weekly TUMC announcement sheet and the website calendar.
