Welcome to Etowah UMC Children and Family Ministries. Our goal is to offer ways for your child to experience the love of Jesus and explore their faith in creative ways, while also supporting you as a parent to grow as a Christian and as a parent. Below you will find ongoing ministries for children at EUMC. 
Ongoing Ministries
Children’s Message: Sunday mornings at the 9:45 a.m. service following the Passing of the Peace, children ages 3 to grade 5 are invited forward for a children’s message that ties into the scripture or theme of the service. 
Children’s Church: Sunday mornings at the 9:45 a.m. service following the Children’s Message, kids are invited to attend Children’s Church for Kids worship and small-group study using Living the Good News curriculum. Children will go back to room 14 and will be brought back to church for Communion. 
 KIDS CLUB: This Sunday Night ministry begins at 5:00 with a small meal (pizza, tacos, etc.). After our meal, all the children grades K-5 will worship together through age-appropriate song. Children will then break off into age-specific classrooms led by trained adult leaders, where children will engage with the scripture lesson with hands-on activities and crafts.
Vacation Bible School (VBS): during the summer for four days, July 22-25 (Sunday-Wednesday), children ages 3 to 5th grade are invited to join Etowah UMC and Etowah Presbyterian for VBS for two hours from 6:00-8:00 p.m. This year’s theme is Cokesbury’s Rolling River Rampage. 
Events and Activities: throughout the year, EUMC offers ways for your family to connect with Jesus together through events and take-home teachable resources, especially during Lent and Advent. 
Children’s Worship Bags: at all Sunday morning worship services, we have children’s bags available for kids to take to their seats. Inside each bag are books, activity and drawing pages, and crayons for your child to use during worship.
