Kids Ministry at FUMC Maryville

At FUMC Maryville our kids (infant through 8th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

Some families prefer to have their children in the service with them, while other families feel that the nursery is more suitable for their children during the length of the worship service. We offer accommodations for both preferences at FUMC Maryville, as well as Sunday School starting at 10:00 am.

We would love to see you and your family.

During Worship on Sunday

FUMC offers an open cry room during the service for infants, in our nursery found on the second floor. We are not staffing the childcare room at this time. All ages of children are welcome in our services.

Sunday School

We engage children through music, videos, games, and stories every Sunday morning. 

There are a variety of classes to fit the different age groups of children, each class is guided by Safe Sanctuary Certified adults that have been trained to work with children and background checked. All Sunday Youth School classes meet in the Gathering Space for the opening lesson. They will then move to the Sunday room classes that can be found on the 2nd floor for preschool through 4th grade. 5th - 9th graders will meet in the East Fellowship Hall. 10th graders through college age will meet on the third floor. The adults will meet on the 3rd floor but have elevator access if needed.
