A CHURCH WITH UNIQUE PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

**All of our teachers, volunteers and childcare providers have completed a screening process in compliance with Friendship’s Safe Sanctuaries Policy**

 

Friendship UMC values children and youth!  For this very reason, we are blessed to have three paid staff members who specifically minister to children, junior high and senior high youth.  As a church family, we believe it is our responsibility to provide numerous opportunities for children and youth to know and serve Jesus Christ.  We are a vibrant church and hope that you will discover our energy to be contagious!

 

INFANTS – AGE 2:  Our nursery is carefully staffed by trained volunteers whose dedication to our littlest ones is cherished.  Nursery care is available at the 9 a.m.  and 10:30 a.m. Sunday worship services.

 

PRESCHOOLERS THROUGH GRADE FOUR:    We offer Sunday School and activities during the 9 am and 10:30 a.m. worship services.  Children have fun learning about God and Jesus through Bible stories, crafts, and games. We provide different curriculum for each time. Please note, during the summer there is no Sunday School for preschool through 4th grade during the 9 a.m. service. There will be a table set up in the Connect service for children with activities.
