Maplewood Kids/Youth

Sunday School classes are a great way to teach our children about Jesus. These classes are taught during the school year. Vacation Bible School is offered in the summer for five evenings to children age 3 through 6th grade, with music, crafts, activities, learning and fun. It is a time of planting spiritual seeds in the next generation. 

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

CHILDREN ARE GIVEN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE IN MINISTRY THROUGH MUSIC AND DANCE.

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.

By teaching our children and engaging them in ministry we help prepare the next generation of disciples.

Christian Education is offered to our youth through the Sunday morning Sunday school. On Sunday afternoon the youth then meet for Methodist Youth Group or (MY Group). It is a time for Christian formation, and teaching, and a time to do outreach.

Confirmation Class is offered to our 7th and 8th graders and to others who may have missed that opportunity. The purpose of confirmation is provide a place where the confirmands can ask questions about God and faith, and to help anchor them in the faith.
