Children’s Ministry


Children at Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church have a variety of ministries and activities available to them throughout the year.

Wonderful Wednesdays

Our church provides a multitude of events for elementary children.  We pick the children up from school and bring them to the church where they will be instructed in music (choir, chimes & bells); have a fun, hands-on learning ministry time; helped with their homework; and Bible study.


Children’s Sunday School

Sunday School is held every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. in the Education Building for toddlers through fifth grade.  We have a nursery for infants and babies.  We use the curriculum entitled Grow, Proclaim, Serve!  and provide a class for each grade level.  We have wonderful, dedicated adults who teach these classes and who help our children grow their faith by leaps and bounds!


Children’s Church (Advent and Lent Services)

Children’s Church is held during Advent and Lent each year. Children in 5K through 3rd grade are invited to the Education Building during each Sunday morning during the worship services to take part in hands-on learning. Children act, sing, play, create and learn as adult volunteers teach them important lessons about our faith.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Vacation Bible School is held every summer in July and children are invited to spend three morning learning about Jesus through music, drama, arts and crafts, recreation, discovery and more! Our VBS is center-based, meaning children are grouped by age and travel from center to center to take part in these different learning experiences.


Other Activities & Events for Children

During the year, many other opportunities arise that allow children to fellowship with their church friends in a safe family environment. These opportunities include events like the Easter Egg Hunt, Advent Party, Harvest Festival, special outings when school is out and more. Our children are sure to have a good time no matter the occasion.


  Safe Sanctuaries Policy

At Lyttleton Street UMC, we take the safety of our children very seriously.  All of our teachers, nursery workers and nursery volunteers submit to background checks.  In addition, our nursery workers are CPR and First Aid certified and we have in place a Safe Sanctuaries Policy to ensure that our children are monitored closely.  We also have in place a sign-up procedure that requires parents to sign in their child using a duplicate sticker, one of which is placed on the child with a corresponding sticker given to the parents.   This ensures that children are returned safely at the end of each service and Sunday school.
