Kids ministry

Our Kids Ministry is dedicated to partnering with parents
to equip kids to lead Christ-centered lives.

Sunday Mornings

Nursery | Under 3 years old

Sundays at 9:15am, and 11am (3 and under)  
Our nursery is staffed with loving staff and volunteers. Your children will play in a fun, safe environment while you enjoy worship.

Preschool  Sunday School | 3 and 4 year olds

Sundays at 9:15am and 11am 
Preschoolers experience the Bible in a small group setting through interactive lessons taught by loving volunteers.

Children | K - 5th grade

Sundays at 9:15am and 11am  
On Sundays, kids begin their morning in "The Rooftop" with high-energy worship, engaging Bible stories, games, and lots of fun while learning about God's love for all. Halfway through the hour, we switch to growth group time where kids get to meet with kids in their grade for more games and activities that reinforce the daily lesson.

Special Needs

Sundays at 9:15am  and 11:00 am
We believe that people are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character regardless of their earthly abilities. Our goal in the Special Needs Ministry is to provide a place for individuals of all ages with various disabilities to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. Mainstream worship, buddy systems, and a custom-designed classroom are just some ways Hamilton Mill UMC becomes a place of security and growth to those with special needs.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."

1 Timothy 4:12

Safe Sanctuary

We care about kids, students, and adults at HMUMC!

The purpose of our Safe Sanctuary Policy is to address the safety and well-being of kids, students, and adults by providing a protective and safe environment.  All church employees and volunteers of kids and students must commit to follow the Safe Sanctuary Policy and conduct ourselves in a manner consistent with the teachings of Christ.  A sanctuary is a sacred place where kids, students, and adults can grow in God’s grace.

Safe Sanctuary Training

All church volunteers and church employees are required to submit to a national background check and to take the Safe Sanctuary Training. If you volunteer with kids, students, or vulnerable adults please watch our Safe Sanctuary Training video and take the assessment. You will want to block out 30 minutes to watch the video and take the assessment using the link below the video. The assessment costs the church money each time you take it, so please do so only after watching the video. Once you’ve passed the assessment, we’ll get an email letting us know you’re trained and ready to serve!
If you have any questions, please contact communications@hmumc.org
