Children's Ministries

Children's Ministries at Lynnhaven UMC include programs involving children from birth through 5th grade.  Our children's programs are designed to give children opportunities to learn and study God's Word in age appropriate ways.  We strive to support families in helping children learn the Biblical basis for making good choices in life and to help children to establish a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ.  We seek to provide a safe and nurturing Christian environment for the care, education, and fellowship of our children and their families.


     In an effort to provide the most secure environment possible for our children, youth and volunteers, Lynnhaven UMC adopted a child/youth protection policy several years ago.  Anyone who is currently working with or who plans to work with children and/or youth is required to go through a training session concerning this policy.  Please contact the church office at 340-5682 to arrange a time that we might go over this policy with you.  THANKS!

NURSERY:  A nursery is provided for infants and toddlers on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings, and during most special events.  Paid nursery staff workers and volunteers offer loving care while parents participate in church activities.

KID ZONE:  Programs for children, 4 years through 5th grade, are offered during both the 9 and 11:00 services. We use the Dig In! curriculum by Group. This year's study is Digging into Discipleship. 

CHILDREN'S CHOIRS Children's Choirs meet on Sunday morning from 10:00 - 10:30 a.m. in the upstairs' children's wing. 

CHILDREN'S PARTIES & EVENTS:  Throughout the year, Family and Children's Ministries work together to provide a variety of special parties and events for children and their families.  These include our annual church picnic, Easter Egg Hunt, Hayride and Cook-out at Triple R Ranch, and Fall Trunk or Treat.  Weekly bulletins, church wide emails and newsletters advertise coming events.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL The dates for the 2019 VBS program "Roar!" will be July 15 - 19. Registration will begin in April, 2019. 

     Questions, concerns or suggestions pertaining to any of our children's programs may be directed to Debbie Andrews, Director of Children's Ministries, at 340-5682.  There are many opportunities to volunteer in the education of our children and Debbie would love to talk with you about them!
