Maplewood Kids/Youth

Sunday Mornings

Sunday School classes are a great way to teach our children about Jesus. These classes meet during the school year (September through May). Classes begin at 9:00am for all children through high school, with a special class for toddlers beginning at 9:30am.

A Message-4-Kids is shared during the worship service each Sunday morning. It’s message is specifically tailored to preschool/elementary age children.

Creative Kids

There are other ways children can get involved in the church! By teaching our children and engaging them in ministry, we help prepare the next generation of disciples.

God’s Kids… is a group of kids, 3rd grade and older including youth to use music and interpretive movement to worship the Lord.

Kid’s Choir… designed for the very young and elementary age to sing their praises during worship.


Kid’s Chimes… is primarily for elementary age child to learn how to play chimes and then to offer their music during worship.

MY Group

On Sundays at 5:30pm, the youth meet for Methodist Youth Group or (MY Group). It is a time for Christian formation, and teaching, and a time to do outreach - not to mention it’s really fun!
